A special event live script reading for the Montana Film Festival by Alex & Andrew Smith, both graduates of the MFA, of their upcoming film Rear View Mirror, slated for release in 2019.
REAR VIEW MIRROR – LIVE SCRIPT READ
Written by Charlie Peters and Curtis Burch
Directed by Alex & Andrew Smith
While driving across the Northern Plains in the summer of 1946 with his wife and provocative mother-in-law, shell-shocked WWII veteran Greg Miller witnesses what he thinks to be the abduction of a woman and her child; a Hitchcockian game of highway cat-and-mouse erupts into a deadly chase as Greg struggles with keep up with the fleeing car and save the kidnapped victims— not to mention his fragile marriage— and his very grasp on reality.
Both a suspenseful, action-filled road film and an intense, layered family dramedy, this is a thoroughly modern throwback to 1940’s noirs. Alex & Andrew Smith (Winter in the Blood, Walking Out, The Slaughter Rule) will direct the film; production is slated for Summer 2019 (perhaps in Montana). The screenplay was developed by L.A. based production company Latitude Productions, which will co-produce with the Smith Brothers.
