Director Statement

 

While the story is dark-hearted, I greatly enjoyed the process of adapting the short story to reveal the nuances of its characters and also maintain the story’s unique dark and melancholic suspense that is buried in Bob’s suburban Los Angeles life. I enjoyed working with a talented cast on the picture: The film stars Barbara Bain (triple Emmy award winner, Golden Globe nominee & Walk of Fame Star recipient), author/actor Robert Kerbeck, acclaimed actress Kerry O’Malley, Kerbeck’s offscreen son Davis Fox & strong supporting actor Bobby Reed.
