The Silent Movie Theater on Fairfax Avenue will screen the recently completed film, “Touchback,” a debut feature from writer/director, P.G. Flores.
Set in a small California town, “Touchback” beautifully captures ordinary people living ordinary lives.
The film deals with Ted, a teenage boy who begins to see the older brother he has always idolized in a different light. Ted realizes he must choose between following in his brother’s lost footsteps or try to find his own way in the world.
Lorenzo James Henrie and Alex Frost give fine, nuanced performances as the two brother. Portia Doubleday is excellent as the pregnant but maligned girlfriend whose betrayal by Frost’s character sets a chain of unfortunate events in motion.
Other cast members include Haley Ramm, Alex Russell, and veteran actor, Billy Campbell.
“Touchback” was produced by Chase B. Kenney. It screens on Wednesday, June 23rd, at 3:00 p.m.
The Silent Theater is located at 611 North Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles, 90036.
