There are many up-and-coming independent movies that strive to make an impression upon the filmmaking community, but only a few actually do stand out from the pack. Writer and director Sean Hackett has been working in the industry for a little while now. He's paid his dues working on a few high-profile features over the past couple of years, including "Zodiac" and "Cyrus" as an intern and an assistant respectively, and now he's looking to break out big with his directorial debut film entitled "Homecoming."

The production stars "Friday Night Lights" and "Heroes" actress Brea Grant with a cast that includes Colleen Camp, John Robinson, Tom Fox-Davies, Kimberly Stewart as well as Hackett himself. It is the story of Estelle Szymanski, an Army medic in search of fun while on leave in her hometown of Celebration, Florida. With her directionless yet noble friends tagging along, she reveals hidden fears about her lonely mother and finds more than she expected from her homecoming celebrations.

"Homecoming" is an About the Logo production that recently won the US/International Best Narrative Film at the AMC Theatres Kansas City FilmFest. Below we have the first clip from the independent feature. The comedy-drama gives a different perspective on what life is like for those who serve for our country and how difficult it can be to readjust. Hackett and company have crafted a wonderful film which encompasses the complex emotions of something that quite a few friends and families have to deal with, year after year. If you want to find out more information about the film, be sure to check out the official "Homecoming" website or follow the production on Twitter.
