Area Premiere July 25–28!

(2014) dir Kat Candler w/Aaron Paul, Josh Wiggins, Juliette Lewis [94 min; DCP]
A portrait of a family on the brink of dissolution set against the haunting backdrop of the refineries of Southeast Texas. Obsessed with metal and motocross, 13-year-old Jacob (Wiggins) has begun to raise concerns with his actions, especially when they involve his little brother Wes. While the boys’ father Hollis (Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul) loves his sons, he is still reeling from the loss of their mother, spending more time at the bar or working on his damaged beach house than with them. When the authorities catch wind of the increasingly volatile situation, his Aunt Pam (Lewis) takes Wes into custody. In Wes’ absence, two things increasingly drive Jacob: winning a motocross race and getting his brother back. – Independent Film Festival of Boston

Official Selection, Independent Film Festival of Boston, 2014

Brattle passes accepted.

Dear Brattle Friends,

You guys continue to humble and amaze us with your outpouring of support!

Thanks to you, we have now raised more than $35,000 from over 400 individual donors!

Thank you for helping to keep our staff paid and The Brattle alive during this scary time.

I hope that you are all feeling healthy.

As we remain closed, our preliminary goal is to raise four weeks of operating support, or $65,000, to ensure we can continue to pay all of our staff, and other overhead through April 7. As things develop, our timeline for being closed and fundraising goal may change, but our ultimate goal of re-opening The Brattle stays firm.

With your help, this goal will become a reality.

Stay healthy,

Ivy, Ned & The Brattle Theatre Team
