Breaking Glass Pictures delivers the emotionally gripping and star-studded drama, We Are Boats, starring Angela Sarafyan and Luke Hemsworth. Writer/Director James Bird dives deep into human nature’s never-ending need to connect with the rest of the disengaged world.
Lives intertwine and connect when Francesca navigates through the living world by encountering strangers at the exact moment she needs to, sending their lives on either a better course towards happiness or setting the wheels in motion towards a tragic end – all while she secretly searches for a loved one that she never had the chance to say goodbye to.
Here are 5 reasons why you should see We Are Boats:
5) Angela Sarafyan!
As a huge fan of Westworld, I was absolutely thrilled to see Angela Sarafyan here and I was incredibly engaged by her heartbreaking performance as Francesca. At the core of Bird’s narrative, Francesca wanders through the living world, meeting strangers at the exact moment she needs to. Sarafyan’s moving performance will render the heart as she desperately seeks the chance to say goodbye to a loved one.
4) Adriana Mather!
Aided by Graham Greene, Adriana Mather delivers an exceptional performance that really nails the film’s message. With spoiling too much, make sure you pay close attention to the integral bar scene between Cliff (Greene) and Ryan (Mather). The well-written dialogue here really gets to the point in a riveting scene.
3) The Ensemble Cast!
If you are a Westworld fan like me, you’re going to love seeing Luke Hemsworth explore his range here. The cast includes Amanda Plummer, Justin Corwell, Jack Falahee, Gaia Weiss, Booboo Stewart), and Uzo Aduba, who all deliver their A-game.
2) The Title!
I loved that director James Bird added a thought-provoking scene to explain the interpretive title. Though people need other people, it’s in our human nature to block each other. Because of our emotional disconnect, Bird examines how strangers wander in and out of our lives.
1) An Emotional Wallop!
We Are Boats packs an emotional wallop that viewers will never forget. Thanks to a solid cast, there is definitely some fine acting on display in every scene.
We Are Boats opens in Los Angeles at the Laemmle NoHo on March 8th, 2019 and on DVD/VOD March 26.
