Paquin gets it in the head at Sundance screening

January 23rd, 2003

Actress Anna Paquin was knocked on the head with a bottle of water at a Sundance screening of her new film, Buffalo Soldiers. Distributed by Miramax and shelved since the events on Sept. 11, 2001, the film caused an uproar with one woman who, according the Screen International, screamed the movie as anti-American and hurled a water bottle at the screen, it instead hitting Paquin.

The young actress was not seriously injured. Buffalo Soldiers deals with drug-dealing of U.S. soldiers in Germany during the fall of the Berlin Wall and is scheduled to open in theaters on March 28.
