I wrote the screenplay for the father/daughter road trip comedy DETOURS (2016). The movie stars Tara Westwood, Carlo Fiorletta, Michael Cerveris, Richard Kind, Vanessa Aspillaga, Phyllis Somerville, and Paul Sorvino.
DETOURS premiered at the Sunscreen Film Festival in Florida in May 2016 in front of a packed house. It won the Best Picture award at the Action on Film Festival, and was nominated for the same award at the Long Island International Film Expo. DETOURS wrapped its festival run at Jersey City's Golden Door Film Festival, at which Tara Westwood received the Best Actress award, Richard Kind received Best Supporting Actor, and Carlo Fiorletta was nominated for the Best Actor award.
My first feature, Surviving Family (2012), is the story of a young woman (Sarah Wilson) who shows up on her dad's doorstep with her fiance (Billy Magnussen) and a plan to get married in 5 days. Laura Thies directed; Tara Westwood, J.D. Williams, Vincent Pastore, and Phyllis Somerville headline the great supporting cast. Click the image to the right to watch the trailer. It screened at 18 festivals in the U.S. and Canada, winning numerous awards.
Surviving Family is now available on Apple TV. It's also streaming free on The Roku Channel, TubiTV, Plex, and Xumo. It's available for free on Hoopla, the free streaming service on pubic libraries in the US and Canada.
