Description: Set in rural Pennsylvania, Nick Frangione’s affecting drama gives us 15-year-old Shaw (Nolan Lyons, Boardwalk Empire), a bullied outsider trying to cope with his mother’s death and a reunion with his estranged, alcoholic father (James Le Gros).
Buck Run is an excavation of my heart. Though Shaw's a fifteen-year-old kid and I was a thirty-year-old man when the film began I still harbored upset toward my father, grief over my mother's death, and bittersweet memories of my rural Pennsylvania home. The film was incredibly cathartic. I was Shaw, through and through. I wanted to put both Shaw and the world around him on the screen in a way that was fair to both. During my prep, I came up against the cynicism I held since I was a boy. I had come to know where I grew up through this lens, rarely opening myself to the beauty and pain in the people around me.
Location scouts for Buck Run quickly turned into conversations with people I'd never imagined I would meet and become close with, and reunification with childhood memories and friends. Working on the script became a means of understanding my father, and seeing myself in him, him in me. The visual language of the film turned into a subjective look at Shaw, still a boy with time, and a locked-off, unforgiving look at William, a man with little.
Buck Run is a story with the hope that comes from acceptance and the forever bond of family.
