Looks like it isn’t only in professional hockey where the “Howe” family name will make huge strides. Featuring Rory Culkin and an indie ensemble cast I’ve loved in their respective breakout films in Emily Meade, Lynn Cohen, David Call, Alexia Rasmussen and Louisa Krause, Lou Howe’s debut film should rise like a soufflé to the top of the 2014 edition and this could be a seminal project in producer/brother Ben Howe’s earlier producing career. Featured in Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces of Independent Film of 2013, Lou has found support early on with Cinereach, IFP and received the Annenberg Feature Film Grant by the Sundance Institute. Casting was put into place in 2012 and production took place earlier in the year. Despite the darker slant of the material, this is ready to shine. See the exclusive image below!
