"The Bachelor Weekend"

VOD premiere: April 15, 2014

Tribeca Film Festival premiere: April 22, 2014

Directed by John Butler, written by John Butler and Peter McDonald. (Ireland) – U.S. Premiere, Narrative.

A bachelor weekend among cordial friends goes haywire when the groom’s soon-to-be brother-in-law crashes the party and challenges their masculinity. Foppish groom-to-be Fionnan would much rather spend his last stag days obsessing over wedding plans than embark on a guys’ night out. Weary of his enthusiasm, Fionnan’s fiancé Ruth convinces his best man, Davin, to take him out for a weekend camping trip. But when Ruth’s alpha-male brother, aptly nicknamed The Machine, arrives unannounced, the tame gathering quickly spirals out of control. Fionnan and his well-mannered friends find themselves at the mercy of The Machine’s crass antics as the trip turns into Fionnan’s worst nightmare. An R-rated slapstick-style comedy, "The Bachelor Weekend" pokes fun at ritualistic male bonding and embracing the great outdoors. Starring Andrew Scott, Hugh O'Conor, Peter McDonald, Brian Gleeson and Amy Huberman.

"Beneath the Harvest Sky"

VOD premiere: April 15, 2014

Tribeca Film Festival premiere: April 18, 2014

Directed and written by Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly. (USA) – U.S. Premiere, Narrative.

A "Stand By Me" for the next generation of boys becoming men, writer-directors Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly’s Beneath the Harvest Sky shares the intimate journey — both metaphorical and literal — of two Maine teenagers. Frustrated and restless, best friends Dominic and Casper are making plans to escape their small town to start new lives in Boston. In order to get the money, Dominic spends the summer harvesting potatoes while Casper becomes involved in the family business — smuggling drugs over the Canadian border. The divergent paths of the two boys, both trapped in different ways, will change their friendship forever. An authentic portrayal of adolescent frustration, with stellar performances from Emory Cohen and Callan McAuliffe, culminates in a heartbreaking coming-of-age drama not to be missed.

"Bright Days Ahead"

VOD premiere: April 15, 2014

Tribeca Film Festival premiere: April 21, 2014

Directed by Marion Vernoux. Written by Fanny Chesnel and Marion Vernoux. (France) – U.S. Premiere, Narrative.

In this sophisticated French drama, a woman in her 60s (film icon Fanny Ardant) falls for a much younger man (Laurent Lafitte), her computer teacher at the local seniors’ club. As she finds herself courting danger — taking her young lover to places they could easily be discovered by her husband (Patrick Chesnais) — she must decide if her retirement will mark the end for her marriage, or a new beginning. Director Marion Vernoux constructs a subtle and sultry vision of a woman struggling to evaluate the role she has played for others versus the life she wants for herself.
