Take Me To The River

Join Indievents and Club David, Wednesday, May 25, for the South Dakota Premiere of TAKE ME TO THE RIVER.

TAKE ME TO THE RIVER made its world premiere in 2015 at the Sundance Film Festival. It has played several film festivals over the last year and has won awards.

Matt Sobel’s assured directorial debut is the story of Ryder, an artsy, confident California teen who is heading to Nebraska for a family reunion. After planning to come out to his conservative relatives, he holds off at his mother’s request but nevertheless makes a showy entrance at the cookout with his short shorts and his eye-catching shades. No one seems particularly impressed except his 9-year old cousin Molly, who likes to follow him around. When they go to the barn to look for birds in the rafters and she comes back screaming and inconsolable, Ryder comes under suspicion and, in the process of clearing his name, learns that some family secrets are sometimes better kept that way.
Here are some press quotes on the film:

“Superlatively acted culture-clash indie chillingly evokes primal dread and sexual transgression…” – Ronnie Scheib, Variety

“Played out like a genuinely strange waking dream…we rarely see such taxing audacity from first time filmmakers.” – The Playlist

“Writer-director Matt Sobel’s quietly engaging debut is one of the great discoveries of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival: his fish-out-of-water observations have a personal edge…” – Ibad Shah, Indiewire
