COLLABORATOR

Film_147655045_poster

Robert Longfellow (Martin Donovan, The Opposite of Sex, “Boss,” "Weeds”) is a famous playwright who can’t seem to catch a break. His recent Broadway play was met with horrible reviews and an early cancellation, and his marriage is being tested as an old flame (Olivia Williams, The Ghost Writer, Rushmore) has reentered his life during a particular moment of weakness.  Retreating back to his childhood home to visit his mother (Katherine Helmond, Brazil), Robert crosses paths with his childhood neighbor, Gus (David Morse, The Green Mile, Dancer in the Dark, “Treme”).  A right-wing, ex-con who still lives at home with his mother, Gus is Robert’s polar opposite in every possible way. When Gus holds Robert hostage at gunpoint during a drunken reunion gone terribly wrong, the drama unfolds as social status, celebrity and the imminent threat of violence converge, building up to a climax that will leave both men forever changed.

With an acclaimed acting career spanning over 20 years, including starring roles in a number of iconic Hal Hartley films beginning with Trust in 1990, Collaborator marks Martin Donovan’s first time behind the camera as a writer and director, and he makes the most of it in this riveting and insightful debut.
