Setting out on what is technically a houseboat but more realistically a shed on two pontoons, award-winning filmmakers Bill and Turner Ross (45365, Tchoupitoulas), their brother Alex and friend Kyle “The Muscle” Rouse embark on a journey to sail from their home state of Ohio to New Orleans. As they brave the mighty Mississippi for three weeks on the not-so-trusty Rosemarie, the boys’ journey becomes a cavalcade of hijinks, near death experiences, nautical close calls and impromptu sing-alongs. Featuring an illustrious cast of characters met along the way and wonderful escapades with every dock they make, the film becomes a beautiful and hilarious adventure. Originally released online in weekly episodes, the film quickly became a much-lauded addition to the Ross brothers’ already beloved body of work. This is the first time River has ever been shown on the big screen in its feature version.
