Quick Feet, Soft Hands

>> Friday, July 25, 2008

My good friend Paul Harrill is hosting the Knoxville premiere of his short film Quick Feet, Soft Hands on September 11, 2008 at the Regal Downtown West Cinema 8. The show starts at 7:30 p.m., and will include an "encore" screening of Paul's Sundance Award-winning short Gina, An Actress, Age 29 to celebrate its recent inclusion in the "Sundance Collection" of the UCLA Film & Television Archives. Tickets are $5, and can be purchased at the door the day of the event.

From Paul's web site:

Set against the backdrop of our national pastime, Quick Feet, Soft Hands follows a young couple trying to pursue the American Dream.

Greta Gerwig (Joe Swanberg's Hannah Takes the Stairs) stars as Lisa, a young woman whose hopes of moving up are tied to Jim, a minor league baseball player.

As Jim falls deeper into a batting slump, the couple must cope with the day-to-day realities of being young and poor. And they must confront the prospect that they may never make it to the big leagues.

I've read the script (it's terrific) but I haven't seen any part of the film yet, so I'm going to do everything I can to be there. In the meantime, you can see the trailer here.
