Shout out to Jeff Nichols

Posted By on Wed, Mar 14, 2007 at 8:31 AM

a Little Rock native and fellow Central High graduate.  His new film "Shotgun Stores" premiered at the Berlin Film Festival and makes an appearance at the Tribeca Film Festival as part of the "Encounters" component of the festival which intends to offer "a compelling range of titles by both emerging and established talents, films which are likely to provoke some of the liveliest comments at the festival."

From the press release:

Shotgun Stores, directed and written by Jeff Nichols. (U.S.A) – North American Premiere. A family feud in rural Arkansas erupts in this biblical tale of blood ties and vengeance, sparked when two sets of half-brothers collide at the funeral of their father. This slow-burning thriller recalls the character-driven storytelling of the 1970's, with a lyrical feel for the intimate rhythms and heat-baked landscapes of the forgotten South.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
