Written by and starring Brea Grant ("Heroes," "Dexter") and Vera Miao ("CSI: Miami," "Brothers & Sisters"), with Grant making her directing debut, this dark comedy/apocalyptic disaster story follows Harriet (Grant), a perpetually optimistic comic-book artist who leaves Los Angeles and hits the road for a new life in Austin, Texas, bringing her seemingly devil-may-care BFF Reba (Miao) along for the ride. However, following a nuclear explosion, the girls are forced to answer some big questions about their lives. And in this exclusive trailer, you get a great sense of the mix of tones in the film, where the peril is very real as it aims for laughs and chills in equal measure.
"Best Friends Forever" will have its first screening at Slamdance on Saturday, January 19th. Watch the trailer below.
