Shouting Secrets starring Gil Birmingham and Chaske Spencer just released its trailer. At TwiTour in Orlando, Chaske said that they will be bringing the film out on the festival circuit so look for it at places like Southwest, Tribecca, and Toronto. They won’t have it at Sundance because it was still being edited at the submission deadline.
Here’s the description on the official website:
“SHOUTING SECRETS is the universal story about a family coming back together under the chaotic event of a parent’s sudden illness.
Siblings separated by their past along with their misunderstood father are left dealing with each other both in the tight confines of the hospital where their mother June now lays in a coma and back at the old family home on a Native American reservation in the nation’s southwest.
Although growing up within the circumstances unique to their ancestry, the children have each followed distinctly different paths in order to separate themselves from each other and their upbringing on the reservation. Wesley, the middle child, is a young author who found his fortune by writing a “fictional” tell-all of life on the reservation at the expense of his family. Tushka, Wesley’s brother, is a washed up athlete who falls victim to his own mediocrity, finding adultery with a young “Lolita” to fulfill his need to once again matter to himself. Pinti, the youngest, seeks love in the embrace of a musician and is left dealing with how to tell the family that she is pregnant with her Caucasian-pot-smoking-Buddhist-of-a-boyfriend’s child.
June, mother to the three children, is the beacon of this family and the light of her husband Cal’s life…but now that she’s not strong enough to hold the torch anymore, will the family be strong enough to hold it together?
Cutting through the harsh themes of family struggle with the precise balance of honest humor and raw conflict, Shouting Secrets relates to the moment we all will eventually be forced to deal with as a family ages together, regardless of the effort we can try to take to avoid those we are bonded to for a lifetime.”
