Personal Effects

By IAM Staff
Personal Effects starring Ashton Kutcher Voltage Pictures

Ashton Kutcher was never skilled enough to be an Iowa wrestler. Fortunately for the Hawkeye fan and former UI student, he has the talent to play one in his next movie.

Kutcher and his wife, Demi Moore, visited Iowa City this past December to raise money for flood relief and premiere his new film, Personal Effects, at the Englert Theatre. The movie, which co-stars Michelle Pfeiffer and Kathy Bates, tells the story of how loss brings the families of two murder victims together. Playing an Iowa wrestler who teaches a troubled boy how to direct his anger into wrestling, Kutcher wears Hawkeye gear throughout the movie.
