Writer-director John Magary’s feature
debut, “The Mend,” has found a home with Cinelicious Pics. The upstart distributor is preparing a day and date release and indie director (and fan of the film) David Gordon Green will present it.
Starring Josh Lucas and Stephen Plunkett as brothers Mat and Alan, respectively, the film follows the pair as they reunite just as Alan leaves on a long-planned vacation with his girlfriend, Farrah. But when Alan returns home earlier than planned to find Mat, Mat’s girlfriend and her son have commandeered his apartment, tensions rise and a mystery emerges: why has Alan returned without Farrah?
Green called the film, which premiered at SXSW in 2014, “bizarre and
beautiful and organic.” Cinelicious will release it late this summer, so keep an eye out, it could be a nice break from all the explosions and superheroes arriving imminently.
