Sundance-winner Rich Hill picks up where Linklater left off.
In June, the bestselling The Dangerous Book for Boys was optioned by Bryan Cranston’s production company. In July, Richard Linklater released his twelve-year in the making, magnum opus, Boyhood. Their films are part of a growing interest in stories of boys in small town, rural America having to fend for themselves—sometimes in the spirit of adventure, and other times, out of necessity. Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner Rich Hill, which hits select theaters nationwide this August and will be available on VOD August 5, belongs to the latter category.
