Ordinary People Returning to Lake Forest after 35 Years

LAKE FOREST IL – In 1980, in his directorial debut, famed actor Robert Redford claimed an Academy Award for his work interpreting Judith Guest’s seminal work Ordinary People to the silver screen. Redford’s Oscar for Best Director was just one of four as the movie also took home golden trophies for Best Picture, Best Writing (Adapted Screenplay, Alvin Sargent) and Best Supporting Actor (Timothy Hutton). Set and filmed right here in Lake Forest, the movie was – for a time – a phenomenon in this then star-struck North Shore community.
