In Our Nature, which premiered this year at SXSW Film Festival, has been acquired by Cinedigm and New Video for domestic distribution. The film is expected to be released theatrically this fall, and released on VOD and DVD shorly after.
Gabrielle Union costars in this indie dramedy alongside Jena Malone, Zach Gilford and John Slattery, and it's directed by Brian Savelson, from his own screenplay.
Nature centers on the relationship of an estranged father and son. Due to a mistake in their schedules, the son brings his girlfriend to his father's vacation cottage. His father unexpectedly arrives to the location with his girlfriend, played by Union; consequently, awkward interactions and conflict arises between them, especially between father and son.
Tambay and I saw the film when it premiered at SXSW. I enjoyed the performances and the film for the most part, although it dragged and meandered a bit. If you haven't read it, see Tambay's review of In Our NatureHERE.
