The Tribeca Film Festival 
is rolling out more first-looks. First off, is director Steph Green’s latest endeavor, entitled "Run and Jump." The film marks Green’s return to Tribeca after winning in the Best Short Narrative category in 2008 for her film "New Boy." "Run and Jump" stars "Saturday Night Live" alumnus Will Forte in a rare dramatic turn (perhaps a preview of things to come in Alexander Payne's "Nebraska"), Ruth McCabe, and Edward MacLiam. It follows an Irish wife and mother who find herself having to band her family together after her husband suffers a stroke.

The plot is below:

After a stroke leaves her husband disabled and fundamentally changed, a spirited Irish wife struggles to keep her family members together. All the while they are under the microscope of an American researcher documenting their recovery process.

Green is not just a Tribeca alumnus, she’s also an Oscar-nominated director, getting the nod in 2009 for Best Short Film, Live Action for "New Boy." This will be her first foray into feature-length filmmaking, and since she’s already received prior acclaim, the stakes are she jumps into her debut. The cast doesn’t have any A-list names, outside of Will Forte, but Green’s strength as a director and the emotional subject matter make it one to pay attention to.
