What would you do to get out of your small town and forge a new life? How desperate is that desire to flee, and how far would you go to make it happen? Those seem to be some of the core themes at play in the coming-of-age thriller “Beneath The Harvest Sky.”
Written and directed by Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly, the film stars Emory Cohen (“The Place Beyond The Pines“), Aidan Gillen (“The Wire,” “Game Of Thrones“) and Callan McAuliffe (“The Great Gatsby“) and tells the story of friends Casper and Dominic who make a pact to pool their earnings on a car and hit the road, so they can ditch small town Maine. When Casper is drawn into drug smuggling by his outlaw father, his friendship with Dominic is tested, leading to some tough choices. In this exclusive clip, we see Caspar’s smooth father as he operates and explains his business.
“Beneath The Harvest Sky” is now available on VOD and will open in limited release on May 2nd. Watch below.
