local sightings: The Mountain, The River and the Road
Friday, Oct 2, 7pm
The Mountain, The River and the Road
(Michael Harring, Seattle, 2008, 75min.)
The latest of Seattle's forays into the new talkies drably bestowed with the moniker "mumblecore" stars some of the genres finest, Justin Rice (Mutual Appreciation, Alexander The Last), Tipper Newton (LOL, Hannah Takes The Stairs) and Joe Swanberg (Nights and Weekends, LOL). Born out of a chance encounter at our 2007 Local Sightings, Michael Harring's 16mm feature debut finds Jeff (Rice) as his parents are kicking him out of the house. Faced with an uncertain future, Jeff starts out on a road trip to Austin, TX with his friend, Tom (Swanberg) who's also escaping his own relationship problems. Half way through the journey Tom jets to sort out issues with his girl friend while Jeff decides to stay behind in the town of Kernville, CA in hopes that he will be struck with inspiration as he avoids the pressures of home. Unfortunately, all he ends up doing is wandering the sleepy small town and watching daytime television. Then one day, after locking himself out of his motel room, Jeff meets the beautiful Cat (Newton) a chain-saw toting, rural gal who happens to work at the front desk of the motel. After some of the genres finest moments of early relationship stumbling its beginning to seem like Jeff just might stay on, but with Tom returning and reality setting in, could this be a life developing or is he still just putting off his future? The Mountain The River and The Road is a beautifully shot debut from another of Seattle's up and coming talents.
