Writer-Director Saar Klein will screen his new film "Things People Do" at this year's SXSW Film Festival on March 7 in Austin, Texas.

In "Thing's People Do" Bill Scanlin (Wes Bentley) loses his job and, unable to tell his wife Susan (Vinessa Shaw) for fear of losing his family, embarks on a life of crime. He befriends a detective, Frank McTiernan (Jason Isaacs), who has chosen to uphold the law for a living but believes very little in its value. Ruby (Haley Bennett), the first stranger to show him kindness, inspires Bill to commit a crime in her honor, and he starts to enjoy his newfound power. As Bill stays ahead of the law, he discovers that sometimes the only thing worse than getting caught is getting away with it.

Klein is a two-time Academy Award nominee for his work editing Terrence Malick’s "The Thin Red Line" and Cameron Crowe’s "Almost Famous."
