Indie PR is proud to represent the award winning film “That Evening Sun” screening at the Boston Independent Film Festival on Thursday, April 23 at 7:30pm at the Somerville Theater.
The film recently won the Audience Award for Best Picture and the Grand Jury Award for Best Acting Ensemble at the South by Southwest Film Festival.  The star of the film is Hal Holbrook who is a Boston area native and will be attending the Sunday screening along with co-star Barry Corbin.

Dramatic Competition
Abner Meecham (Hal Holbrook) flees the nursing facility in which his son convinced him to live and returns to his Tennessee farm, only to discover his son has leased the farm to an old foe. This sets up a ruthless grudge match between Abner and Lonzo Choat (Academy Award winner Ray McKinnon) the new tenant, each man rightly claiming the land as his own and each refusing to leave. Lines are drawn, threats are made, and the simmering tension under the Tennessee sun erupts, inevitably, into savagery.

Director: Scott Teems

Cast: Hal Holbrook, Ray McKinnon, Walton Goggins, Carrie Preston, Barry Corbin
