2011, Tribeca Film, 87 min, USA, Dir: Martin Donovan

Dramatist Robert Longfellow (Martin Donovan, here also directing) returns to his native Los Angeles to escape the scathing reviews of his latest Broadway play, spend time with his mother, consider a second career as a script doctor and re-connect with actress and former flame Emma (Olivia Williams, RUSHMORE). But when Robert’s bonkers neighbor (David Morse) holds him hostage at gunpoint and the situation becomes a media frenzy, the two childhood acquaintances spend a booze and pot-fueled night verbally sparring about the American Left, the American Right and all things in between. With photographer-musician Melissa Auf der Maur (Hole) in her feature film debut as Robert Longfellow's wife, Alice.
