The Death of Dick Long

New England Premiere

Director Daniel Scheinert and Writer Billy Chew in Person!


Genre: Narrative Feature
Runtime: 100 min
Director: Daniel Scheinert

Holy crap. Dick is dead. Died last night after band practice, and his bandmates, Zeke and Earl, don’t want anybody finding out how. That’s too bad though, ’cause news travels fast in small-town Alabama, and these guys suck at covering their tracks. The authorities haven’t ID’d the body just yet, but Zeke’s wife and his daughter are getting more and more suspicious.

Michael Abbott Jr. as Zeke and Andre Hyland as Earl are both brilliant at being dumb and are both funny as hell when all hell breaks loose. Virginia Newcomb, as Zeke’s wife, Lydia, leads a killer supporting cast that includes Sarah Baker and Jess Weixler. From a daring, provocative, outrageous screenplay by Billy Chew, director Daniel Scheinert (one half of the directing duo known as DANIELS, responsible for SWISS ARMY MAN, IFFBoston Screening Series 2016) expertly balances the hilarity and heartache of what happens when dark secrets are dragged kicking and screaming into the light.
