THE DRIFTLESS AREA

TFF 2015 Directed by Zachary Sluser
FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE THE DRIFTLESS AREA [TFF 2015]
“No one knows if Pierre fell for the wrong girl or was just unlucky in love.” Based on the novel of the same title by Tom Drury, Zachary Sluser’s neo-noir, metaphysical romance centers on a budding love affair that causes a ripple effect in a quiet town. After his parents’ death, an affable bartender, Pierre Hunter (Anton Yelchin), returns to his childhood home where he falls for the enigmatic Stella (Zooey Deschanel), a stunning woman with an elusive past. Pierre finds himself pulled into a cat-and-mouse game with an incompetent yet destructive criminal (John Hawkes). Braced with a duffel bag full of cash and unyielding optimism, an unveiling mystery sets Pierre down a path that will determine all of their fates.

Sluser’s debut feature beautifully encapsulates how even the most fleeting encounters can alter the course of our lives. Also featuring Alia Shawkat, Frank Langella, Aubrey Plaza, and Ciarán Hinds.
