Steph Green first caught our attention as the director of the Oscar-nominated short film “New Boy,” adapted from a Roddy Doyle short story. Her follow-up feature, “Run & Jump,” will hit the Tribeca Film Festival on April 20th, and we have an exclusive first look at the poster for the film starring Will Forte.
The film is an intimate portrait of an Irish family led by Vanetia and Conor Casey (Maxine Peake and Edward MacLiam) who find their life in turmoil when Conor suffers an unexpected stroke, changing his personality. A buttoned-up, calming American doctor (Will Forte) enters the fray when he stays with the family on a research grant to document their recovery process, upending the family’s dynamics. It’s a rare dramatic performance “Saturday Night Live” vet Forte, which is intriguing all in itself.
