Men outside, men in the field, men in the snow. These three films all center around the complex relationships they have with each other.
Directed and written by David Gordon Green. (USA) – Spotlight, New York Premiere, Narrative.
Alvin (Paul Rudd) and Lance (Emile Hirsch) spend the summer of 1988 repainting a highway in a fire-damaged forest. The isolation quickly wears thin on Lance, yet an unlikely friendship emerges within their cutting jibes and forced reconciliations to meet the long road that lies ahead. David Gordon Green returns to the lyrical tenor of his earliest films in this potent blend of comedy and road-movie stoicism, based on the 2011 Icelandic film Either Way. A Magnolia Pictures release.
Buddy movies are a dime a dozen, but every once in a while, there's one that stands out. Don't expect crazy comedy, as you'll get an understated portrait of two men just trying to understand each other (and the natural humor that accompanies such).
