Joseph Cross
, Adelaide Clemens, Deborah Ann Woll, Richard Schiff, and Ricky Jay, star in the drama that follows Davis Green who discovers he has a family didn’t know about, when a cousin he never knew one day lands on his doorstep. But soon something brews between them beyond a shared past. Here’s the official synopsis: 

When Davis Green’s (Joseph Cross) alluring young cousin Alexis (Adelaide Clemens) appears on his doorstep one night, he discovers that a side of his family has been kept secret from him. Against his father’s wishes, Davis travels to rural, upstate New York to meet his other cousins. While wrestling with a taboo attraction to one another, he and Alexis attempt to reunite their families, uncovering the reasons behind a long-standing rift and the shocking secret that tore their fathers apart. Together, their discoveries force them to confront the temptation to keep their familial grudge going rather than end it.

“The Automatic Hate” opens in Los Angeles at the Laemmle Monica Film Center on Friday, March 11th, with additional national dates to follow. Watch below.
