A new drama from writer/director Gabrielle Demeestere (The Last Cigarette, The Color of Time) will be seeing a limited release in theaters this Friday. Based on the book A California Childhood by James Franco, the film follows three 5th grade friends in 1985, whose life stories begin to unfold as the town as the threat of a loose mountain lion looms over the community of Palo Alto, California. Starring in the lead is original writer James Franco (127 Hours, The Interview), who shares the screen with actors Everett Meckler (Emily and Billy), Alec Mansky, and Steven Wiig (Into the Wild, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes). The film was an official selection winner at this years Nashville Film Festival, Sarasota Film Festival, Seattle International Film Festival, Provincetown International Film Festival, and Slamdance Film Festival(s) this year. This is also Demeestere’s second outing with Franco; the two worked previously together on the 2012 biographical drama The Color of Time. Watch the trailer here on MADE, and if it’s playing in a theater near you this weekend, definitely keep this one on the list of possibilities. Enjoy!
