Hide Your Smiling Faces

One of our 13 Films To See In March, you'll have to find the time to close out the month with a film that deserves a bit of love when competing against the showier studio films, and one that may introduce you to a filmmaking talent worth keeping an eye on.

Director Daniel Carbone's "Hide Your Smiling Faces" is headed into limited release, and if you're looking for an intimate tale, told with evocative precision, this one is for you. Starring Nathan Varnson and Ryan Jones, the film tracks two brothers over one summer as they deal with adolescence and mortality. And as you'll see in this exclusive clip, dying is a subject on their minds, even as they swim and play against a bucolic background where it seems nothing could go wrong.

"An engrossing debut film" that " skillfully articulates the inexpressible; the weird, beautiful struggle that is life," "Hide Your Smiling Faces" opens in limited release this Friday, March 28th and is available now on VOD/iTunes. And be sure to check out our feature with director Daniel Carbone, "My Life In 10 Movies." Watch below.
