The body of the Sundance Film Festival isn't even cold yet, but Hollywood filmmakers, publicists, talent, and press will find themselves leaving behind the parkas and gearing up for the Santa Barbara International Film Festival this weekend. It kicked off last night with the premiere of Henry Alex-Rubin's "Disconnect," and today, we've got an exclusive look at the trailer and poster for a film making its debut in Santa Barbara this weekend, Seth Fisher's "Blumenthal."

The body of the Sundance Film Festival isn't even cold yet, but Hollywood filmmakers, publicists, talent, and press will find themselves leaving behind the parkas and gearing up for the Santa Barbara International Film Festival this weekend. It kicked off last night with the premiere of Henry Alex-Rubin's "Disconnect," and today, we've got an exclusive look at the trailer and poster for a film making its debut in Santa Barbara this weekend, Seth Fisher's "Blumenthal."

Written, directed by and starring Fisher, the dramedy co-stars Brian Cox as Harold Blumenthal, a legendary playwright whose death leaves his family reeling in any number of improbable ways. Drug rep nephew Ethan (Fisher) tries to navigate his rocky relationships during this time, Harold's brother Saul has his own somewhat embarrassing issues, all while Saul's second wife Cheryl longs for the glory days. And as you'll see in the exclusive trailer below, it looks like Harold's family is just as neurotic as he ever was.

"Blumenthal" also stars Fred Melamed, Laila Robins, Mark Blum, and Mei Melancon. It unspools at the Metro 4 Theater in Santa Barbara on Sunday, January 27th, at 2 pm. Check out the official poster and trailer below.
