Watch: Indie Darlings Shane Carruth and Amy Seimetz Star in SXSW Short 'We'll Find Something'

The multitalented Shane Carruth (“Upstream Color”) and Amy Seimetz (“Sun Don’t Shine”) show off their formidable acting chops in Casey Gooden’s 12-minute SXSW short “We’ll Find Something,” about a couple visiting New York and looking for food—as well as “something” else—on a Friday night in New York.

As early evening passes into late night, and the frustrations of the overcrowded city spill over into pre-existing marital and professional problems, both Carruth and Seimetz carry off the “ornery” nature of the conversation convincingly—and Gooden’s unfussy direction and naturalistic dialogue suggests an emerging, lo-fi talent. 

What may be most remarkable, though, is that Carruth and Seimetz found the time to participate at all: he’s preparing for his next feature, “The Modern Ocean,” and her TV series “The Girlfriend Experience,” with Lodge Kerrigan, debuts on Starz next year. So, savor them: you might not get to see Carruth or Seimetz in front of the camera again for a while.
