All Is Bright Trailer


Dennis is a Canadian former thief who’s just been released on parole, only to come back to New York find that his wife Therese is no longer interested in knowing him and has told his young daughter that he died of cancer. What’s more, finding a job is almost impossible given his criminal past and the current economic state so his hopes of building a life on the straight-on-the-narrow are looking scuppered. However, an opportunity arises when his former partner in crime Rene offers him a job selling Christmas trees in Brooklyn – unfortunately, Rene has now become involved with Therese. Embittered and furious, Dennis is forced to hold on to the poor card life has dealt him if he wants to make sure he can buy his daughter a long yearned for piano for Christmas.

 

‘All Is Bright’ is a comedy drama that does not fail to tug on the old heartstrings now and again. It may be a little early to start thinking on the upcoming festive season, but this really is a story of family and personal values for all year round. It has been directed by Phil Morrison ('Junebug', 'Upright Citizens Brigade', 'Perfect Partner') and is the screen debut of screenwriter Melissa James Gibson. It will be released in US theatres on October 4th 2013.
