Last is a look at Thomas Haden Church, Marc Labreche and Vincent Hoss-Desmarais in "Whitewash." The movie is directed by Emanuel Hoss-Desmarais, making his feature-film debut. The movie follows a man (Church) trying to get through the winter. He believes he’s discovered love, but death and other serious events befall him, leaving him to figure out how to escape the consequences. "Whitewash" will make its world premiere in the Narrative category.
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.
