Cast: Jimmie Fails, Jonathan Majors, Rob Morgan, Tichina Arnold, Danny Glover
Jimmie and his best friend Mont try to reclaim the house built by Jimmie’s grandfather, launching them on a poignant odyssey that connects them to their past, even as it tests their friendship and sense of belonging in the place they call home.
“Loosely based on a real-life experience of Falls and the product of two childhood friends that, per [director Joe] Talbot, spun out of ‘long walks Jimmie and I would take together in Bernal Heights,’ the film delivers a haunted house story without the supernatural horror element. It feels singular, righteous, heartfelt. It’s already one of the best movies of 2019 by a long shot.” – David Fear, Rolling Stone
