The plot synopsis is below:
Bruce (Thomas Haden Church) is merely trying to survive a harsh winter when he meets Jean. Conflict leads to an accidental death, and Bruce finds himself in a complicated and unexpected place. Grappling with his guilt, Bruce creates a prison from which he cannot escape. Haden Church perfectly utilizes his comic talent in this wry, well-crafted film.
Thomas Haden Church can make the most of any cinematic situation. While Hoss-Desmarais’ quality as a director has yet to be seen in a feature-length (he has prior experience in shorts) format, the synopsis emphasizes the possibility of comedy in a romance/murder situation. The synopsis sounds intriguing, and Church usually delivers. The Tribeca Film Festival runs April 17th through 28th.
