Centered around Shannon Harper, a non-actor in his first acting role, Keith Miller’s feature-length directorial debut (which he also wrote) follows the untrained leading man in his daily routine as an insurance claims adjuster, living in solitude and trying to make ends meet. After receiving an unfortunate medical diagnosis and having to face his own mortality, Harper decides to make peace with all of the people from his former life as a drug dealer.
Described as John Cassavetes-esque, the film's almost documentary-like approach shines a light on characters and a world that rarely see a large audience. “Welcome to Pine Hill” gets a limited theatrical release on March 1st. Check out the trailer below.
