Michael (Peter Cilella) is committed to getting his best friend Chris (Vinny Curran) to sober up and get his life back on track. With the best of intentions, Michael implements a plan to convince Chris to go to rehab before his drug addiction leads to an early death. But what begins as an attempt to save his friend’s life quickly takes an unexpected turn as the two friends confront personal demons, the consequences of past actions, and forces beyond their control.

A complex narrative, tricky script, and quicksilver shifts in tone are just a few of the pitfalls that could easily have caused Resolution to stumble. But Justin Benson and Aaron Scott Moorhead are uncommonly talented filmmakers who embrace the challenges they set for themselves and craft a film that embodies the energy, ambition, and resourcefulness of the American indie spirit. Their film is weird, wild, endlessly entertaining, and consistently impossible to predict. Expertly balancing dark humor with genuine thrills and unexpected pathos, Benson and Moorhead have created an utterly unique cinematic experience that defies genre classification. {Synopsis courtesy of Tribeca Film Festival.]
