The Dark Divide (2020 | 108 min. | Directed by Tom Putnam)
Its 1995. Nature writer Robert Pyle (David Cross) is struggling to finish his next bookand help his wife Thea (Debra Messing) navigate a relapse of her ovarian cancer. Thea never stops pushing her husband to be a better man, take control of his life, get out of the classroom and into the forests he loves to write about but seldom visits. Not until after Thea dies does Pyle finally, reluctantly accept her challenge spending a month hiking across Washingtons Gifford Pinchot National Forest in search of new species of butterflies. As he overcomes each hurdle, this shy academic finds a new appreciation for Thea, and an understanding of how much she brought to his life. Equal parts Jack London, Henry David Thoreau, and H.P. Lovecraft, Pyles true-life journey leads him to discover a few things about himself, and a lot about the need for wilderness in our lives. With David Koechner, Cameron Esposito, Gary Farmer and Drive-By Truckers Patterson Hood. Music by The Avett Brothers, Giants in the Trees featuring Krist Novoseli, The National Reserve, Samantha Crane, Bombadil, and more.
