Prince Avalanche was shown at the SXSW Film Festival last month, and our reviewers Angela and Ryan really liked it. It is a simple film. Two actors out in the woods, painting lines on the road. The film comes off as more comedy than drama in this trailer, but since I have not personally seen it, I am just going off the trailer. It definitely has an indie feel and Magnolia Pictures is distributing it.
The film stars Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch, and David Gordon Green wrote and directed the film.

“An odd couple of sorts, meditative and stern Alvin and his girlfriend’s brother, Lance, dopey and insecure, leave the city behind to spend the summer in solitude repainting traffic lines down the center of a country highway ravaged by wildfire. As they sink into their job in the remarkable landscape, they learn more than they want to about each other and their own limitations. An unlikely friendship develops through humor and nasty exchanges, leading to surprising affection. Adapted from Icelandic film Either Way, Prince Avalanche is driven by wonderful performances by Paul Rudd, Emile Hirsch, and Lance LeGault. Writer/director David Gordon Green gets back to his independent roots with this character study, which shows his knack for realistically capturing people and finding meaning in their lives and dreams.”
Prince Avalanche is in theatres August 9, 2013.
