Buck Run

Director: Nick Frangione
Premiere: New York Premiere
Country: USA

Director Nick Frangione draws on his childhood memories of growing up an outsider in rural Pennsylvania for this affecting drama. After the death of his mother, heartbroken 15-year-old Shaw (Nolan Lyons, Boardwalk Empire) is compelled to move in with his estranged father (James Le Gros), a conflicted alcoholic more concerned with hunting deer than raising a son. Shaw, already a bullied outcast at school, struggles to come to terms with his grief and his new life with an emotionally distant dad while wanting a traditional funeral for his mom — something his father can’t afford. Frangione evokes what it’s like to live in conservative, rural America at this particular moment. In a world of swap meets and damaged souls, will this grieving teen find a place to fit in?
