In anticipation of the festival to come, SIFF looks back at a festival favorite of 2016.
Screenwriter Madison Harrison and producers Brent Stiefel and Sean Patrick Burke will be in attendance for a q&a following the Friday, 7 p.m. screening!
Jack (Owen Campbell, "The Americans") is a loner who keeps to himself—never fitting in and never really wanting to—-spending his time skateboarding down the streets of his neighborhood. When his mom (Mary Stuart Masterson, Fried Green Tomatoes) begins dating Tom (Scott Cohen, "Gilmore Girls"), an ex-military security guard, Jack is forced into a friendship with his son, charismatic and rebellious Mark (Charlie Heaton), and they eventually all move in together. When they meet Sarah (Amandla Stenberg, The Hunger Games) they become an inseparable trio, spending their days skipping school, getting stoned, listening to music, and ignoring their romantic urges until a shocking act of violence changes everything.
