A SINGLE SHOT is about to make its North American debut at the Tribeca Film Festival, and to help familiarize us with the identity of the backwoods thriller, a teaser trailer has just been unveiled. And it's a creepy little number.
Based on the book by Matthew F. Jones (who also penned the screenplay) and directed by David M. Rosenthal, A SINGLE SHOT features an ace ensemble, including Sam Rockwell, William H. Macy, Melissa Leo, Ted Levine, Jason Isaacs and Jeffrey Wright. Nuff said.
John Moon lives alone in a trailer on the land that was his family's farm until the bank foreclosed on it years ago (for reasons he has never fully understood). His wife has just left him, taking their infant son with her, and John must support himself with odd jobs and poaching game on a neighbor's land. Out hunting deer one morning, he hears the rustle of branches and fires a single shot--only to discover that he has killed a teenage girl. Horrified, Moon tries to cover up his tragic mistake and then to find out who the girl was and what she was doing in the woods. Fear, guilt, and obsession leads him to unearth a shocking pattern of evil involving the residents of the town--and before long all the plots have converged on him.
We'll let you know if A SINGLE SHOT gets picked up for distribution.
