Coen Brothers Meets Winter’s Bone


Since its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, Small Town Murder Songs has been hailed as a beautiful, eerie Coen Brothers-esque tale of crime and redemption, and its director Ed Gass-Donnelly promptly became one of Variety’s top 10 directors to watch. Peter Stormare (who played a kidnapper in both Fargo and The Big Lebowski) is the small-time cop in a tightly knit Mennonite community who takes it upon himself to solve a violent murder, and inadvertently intertwines his life and his relationships in the case. Martha Plimpton (“Raising Hope”), Jill Hennessy (“Crossing Jordan”) and Aaron Poole (This Beautiful City) also star in the modern gothic thriller, whose atmospheric soundtrack by indie rockers Bruce Peninsula adds to the intrigue. It premieres in the city at Dumbo’s reRun Gastropub Theater on July 1 and runs for one week only. See the trailer here.
