In a just world, more people would know the name Noah Buschel. The filmmaker behind indies “Sparrows Dance” and “The Missing Person” has quietly been making his voice know to those paying attention, and his latest, “Glass Chin,” certainly snapped our attention at the Tribeca Film Festival last year. It’s taken a while, but the movie is now coming to theaters and the first trailer has arrived.
Featuring a great ensemble that includes Corey Stoll, Billy Crudup, Yul Vazquez, Marin Ireland, David Johansen, and Katherine Waterston, the story follows a boxer looking to mount one last comeback, who gets mixed up with a shifty restaurateur and finds himself in way over his head. This one is a winner, and a picture we called “authentic and golden,” and “a tiny little drama about the virtues of character.”
“Glass Chin” opens on VOD and in cinemas on June 26th. Track it down.
