NHFF 2010 Feature Film DRUNKBOAT Awaits Multi-City U.S. Theater Release July 13
The drama written by Robert Meyer and Randall Buescher and starring John Malkovich, John Goodman, Dana Delaney, Jason Zachar, Jim Ortlieb, and Skipp Sudduth captivated audiences and won the NHFF 2010 Audience Choice Narrative Award, and after the lengthy distribution process unfolded the film now awaits its US Theatrical Release.
“It’s been a long and tiresome road, but we’re glad to finally get here.” Said Chase Bailey, Executive Producer, about the multi-city release.
Drunkboat tells the story of a young teenager, Abe (Jacob Zachar) who manipulates the unsuspecting help of his alcoholic uncle (John Malkovich) to buy a boat (a Drunkboat) from a con man named Mr. Fletcher (John Goodman) when his mother Eileen (Dana Delaney) is out of town. The story resonates with the struggle of Uncle Mort, making the story much deeper than a simple tale of a boy and his boat. Both the uncle and Abe come of age in the story.
Based on Bob Meyer’s original play and brought to audiences by Left Bank Films, Magnificant Mile, and Warner Brothers the film can be seen starting July 13 in these US Cities and theaters:
