After a long festival run, Jenn Wexler‘s indie The Ranger hits New York’s IFC Center August 17th and L.A.’s Laemmle Music Hall September 7th before arriving on VOD at a later date. In honor of the new dates, IFC has shared a brand new clip from the film in which a group of punks has their fun in the park interrupted by a gunshot to their stereo.
In the film:
“When Chelsea and her friends get in trouble with the cops, they flee the city and go on the run. Fueled by a hallucinogenic drug called Echo, they hope to lay low-and get high-in an old family hideout in the woods. But Chelsea’s got reservations about going back to nature and secrets she’s not sharing with her friends. When a shot rings out, her past comes crashing back, and the punks find themselves pitted against the local authority- an unhinged park ranger with an axe to grind.”
Jeremy Holm (“House of Cards”, “Mr Robot”), Chloe Levine (The Transfiguration, The OA), Amanda Grace Benitez (All Cheerleaders Die) star alongside Granit Lahu, Jeremy Pope, and Bubba Weiler star in Larry Fessenden’s Glass Eye Pix and Andrew van den Houten’s Hood River Entertainment film.
Wexler had three movies on the festival circuit as a producer, Robert Mockler’s Like Me which premiered at SXSW 2017, Ana Asensio’s Most Beautiful Island which premiered and won the Grand Jury Prize at SXSW 2017, and Mickey Keating’s Psychopaths. She also produced Keating’s Darling which world premiered at Fantastic Fest and was released in 2016. The Ranger marks her feature directorial debut.
The Ranger was written by Jenn Wexler and Giaco Furino. Andrew van den Houten and Ashleigh Snead produce for Hood River Entertainment and Larry Fessenden and Heather Buckley produce for Glass Eye Pix, along with Wexler.
