Prince Avalanche - Teaser Trailer
Director David Gordon GreenYear 2013Genre(s) Animation
Alvin is a pretty serious highway worker who's on a long summer job to repaint the road lines on a country highway after wildfire burnt them out. He is accompanied by his girlfriend's peculiar and very unworldly brother Lance, who he finds difficult and immensely frustrating to work with and who he doesn't believe is intellectually capable of doing the job. As the weekend approaches, Alvin decides he wants some quiet time to enjoy the scenery, though with the atmosphere between him and Lance growing steadily sourer, it proves more difficult by the day. After a few impolite tiffs and aggressive exchanges, they start to nurse an unlikely friendship as their camping trip away from the city ignites a brotherly bond between them.
'Prince Avalanche' has been adapted by director and writer David Gordon Green ('Pineapple Express', 'George Washington', 'Snow Angels') from the 2011 Icelandic movie 'Either Way' written by Hafsteinn Gunnar SigurÐsson. It's a wonderful comedy about bonding, friendship and discovering meaning in one's life. It won the Silver Berlin Bear award at the Berlin International Film Festival and was nominated for the Golden Berlin Bear. It is set to hit US theatres, iTunes and On Demand on August 9th 2013.
Starring: Paul Rudd, Emile Hirsch, Lance LeGault, Joyce Payne, Gina Grande, Lynn Shelton
