The most recent example of man hitting rock bottom and turning to desperate measures to make ends meet is “Breaking Bad,” which followed one Walter White on his twisted path to becoming a drug kingpin. In the upcoming “Sun Belt Express” another man is pushed to the wrong side of the law when his luck runs out, but with far more comedic results.
Starring Tate Donovan and Stephen Lang, the film follows an Arizona man, who owes money to his ex-wife, who decides to become a shuttle for illegal immigrants crossing the border. But soon his plans go awry and his pregnant Mexican girlfriend and teenage daughter are caught up in his scheme. And this first trailer highlights the sunbaked comedy that co-writer and director Evan Buxbaum has put together.
“Sun Belt Express” premieres at the Champs-Elysees Film Festival, which runs from June 11-17.
