A soft-spoken young man, tasked with violence, struggles to keep his wits or squirm his way out. He's guided by a wily, loose cannon of a handler, who gets high & preaches old folklore about being saved, and gunning down rats. Though the reason is unclear, the two men have found their way into a revenge plot, a bad situation escalating. The quiet one reluctantly listens while a third man offers a firearm crash course, "Once the gun's loaded, don't put your finger inside that trigger guard until you're ready to let the thing work." We Can't Help You is Southern Gothic crime drama, going for something like Jeff Nichols' Shotgun Stories. It's nicely shot and edited & the cast seems authentically Southern, a boon considering how often we're fed Southern stories with obviously non-Southern personnel. It also knows how to create suspense by holding back. (15 minutes). Online Premiere. Previously screened at: CUCALORUS, INDIE GRITS, VIRGINIA, RICHMOND, TALLGRASS. Directed by ALAN SCOTT NEAL and BRAD LAND. Written by BRAD LAND. Starring TAYLOR KOWALSKI, MATTHEW LAND, STEPHEN ELLIOTT, and AUSTIN NICHOLS.
