Making its world premiere at this year’s SXSW film festival is the Civil War drama The Retrieval, which we hadn’t heard of before today (adding it to our list of “slavery/Civil War” films list – see Tambay’s post from earlier this month HERE).
Helmed by Chris Eska, nominated for two Independent Spirit Awards (and winner of the Cassavetes Award) for his feature film August Evening, The Retrieval stars newcomers (mostly) Ashton Sanders, Tishuan Scott, Keston John, Bill Oberst, Jr., Christine Horn, and others. Jason Wehling and Jacob Esquivel produce.
All we have for a synopsis is: “On the outskirts of the Civil War, a boy is sent north by a bounty hunter gang to retrieve a wanted man.”
A very intriguing premise and interesting first poster, see the latter below; certainly eager to find out much more. We will definitely follow this film closely. A trailer and/or more stills should surface sooner than later.
