A Southern Gothic comedy set in the 1950s about a timid orderly, Norville, that finds himself late for his first day of work and his first assignment: transporting two psychiatric patients to another facility five hours away, with only three hours to get them there. With each minute and mile that passes, Norville desperately struggles to keep his own sanity along this tense, bizarre and chaotic ride.

Frank Gross seems to be a man who has it all: a quiet home in the suburbs, a good job, a daughter that loves him. Then, on a day much like today, there comes a knock at the door and his orderly world slides sideways into the darkness beyond what we know. Ballerina is a provocative, thoughtful drama about love, time, what we can prevent, and what we can’t no matter how much we might want to.
The Strange Ones
Directed by CHRISTOPHER RADCLIFF and LAUREN WOLKSTEIN
THE STRANGE ONES is a 2011 short film written and directed by Christopher Radcliff and Lauren Wolkstein, and starring David Call (TINY FURNITURE, TWO GATES OF SLEEP), Merritt Wever (NURSE JACKIE, MICHAEL CLAYTON), and Tobias Campbell (CONVICTION, SALT).
The film follows two travelers – a man and a boy (David Call and Tobias Campbell) – whose car has broken down, and who stumble upon a small roadside motel, where a girl (Merritt Wever) offers to help them. At first all seems normal, but an unseen tension begins to mount between the three of them, leading to a startling discovery. Mysterious and evocative, THE STRANGE ONES serves to strip away the ordinary situation it presents in order to offer a brief glimpse of a complicated, dangerous, and secret world lurking beneath the surface.
Directed by Joshua H. Miller & Miles B. Miller
A Southern Gothic tale of two brothers who go to desperate measures to please their overbearing mother.
