A Bag Of Hammers

USA/English (85 mins)

CLOSING NIGHT FILM!

Canadian Premiere On the surface, first-time feature filmmaker Brian Crano’s wonderfully offbeat comedy is about two misfit best friends incapable of growing up, whose direction is tested by an abandoned child, worn beyond his years; together they invent the family they've always needed. Dig deeper, however, and you’ll find one of the most entertaining and emotionally satisfying films of the year.

Featuring pitch-perfect performances by Jason Ritter (whose monologue in the diner scene will leave you breathless), co-writer Jake Sandvig (Easy A), the impeccably-named Chandler Canterbury (Knowing, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), and the wonderful Rebecca Hall (The Town), A Bag of Hammers balances comedy and tragedy with an equally deft hand, signaling the arrival of a major new filmmaking talent.
