With one feature under his belt, filmmaker Brandon Colvin is taking another big step forward with his next feature “Sabbatical.” Boasting some big names in the cast, including Robert Longstreet (“Thou Wast Mild And Lovely,” “The Catechism Cataclysm“) and Thomas Jay Ryan (Hal Hartley‘s “Henry Fool” trilogy), the director is putting forth a very distinct aesthetic, and today we have the exclusive trailer for the film.
Also featuring Rhoda Griffis, Kentucker Audley, Rebecca Koon, and Frank Mosley, “Sabbatical” centers on Ben, who returns home to care for his ill mother and to work on a new book. However, he soon finds his relationships with his mother, his brother, his ex-wife, and his high school pal tested, and he’ll have to decide whether or not engage or abandon those responsibilities.
“Sabbatical” will screen at the New Orleans Film Festival in October. Check out the trailer below.
