Between July 4th excitement and the upcoming frenzy of San Diego Comic Con, a cinematic counterbalance to multiplex spectacle might be in order. And particularly with temperatures on the rise, “Red Knot” just might be a welcome respite —today we have exclusive clip from the film.
Directed by Scott Cohen and led by “Mad Men” star Vincent Kartheiser and Olivia Thirlby, the story follows a young writer and his wife who turn his research trip to Antarctica into a belated honeymoon voyage, combining business with pleasure. But once on the ship, they realize their marriage might be more fragile than they previously thought. In this scene, as the couple are surrounded by penguins, some of the issues they’ve never really discussed are broached.
“Red Knot” is one to make some time for —I called it “insightful in the way few first films are” in my review. The film hits iTunes and VOD on July 7th. Watch below.
