Matt Sobel’s feature debut “Take Me to the River,” which premiered to considerable acclaim at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, follows Ryder (Logan Miller), a gay Californian teen who heads to his Nebraskan family reunion. At his mother’s request, he has decided not to use the occasion to come out to his family, though he becomes the target of grave suspicion after a strange encounter with his nine-year-old cousin, which also threatens to dig up a family secret.

Anchored by a breakthrough performance by Logan Miller, “Take Me to the River” constantly forces one to question any given character’s
culpability until the film’s finale. Much of the drama is fueled by the ambiguity over the central event, and the exclusive poster below seems to play up that angle by teasing the relationship between Ryder and his cousin.

The film will be released starting on March 18 in New York City at Landmark’s Sunshine theater and on March 25 in Los Angeles at Landmark’s Nu-Art theater. A wider theatrical rollout will follow, courtesy of Film Movement.
