Here’s the first trailer for Sarah Adina Smith’s upcoming thriller Buster’s Mal Heart. The film centers on an “eccentric mountain man on the run from the authorities, surviving the winter by breaking into empty vacation homes in a remote community. Regularly calling into radio talk shows—where he has acquired the nickname “Buster”—to rant about the impending Inversion at the turn of the millennium, he is haunted by visions of being lost at sea, and memories of his former life as a family man. As he drifts from house to house, eluding the local sheriff at every turn, we gradually piece together the events that fractured his life and left him alone on top of a snowy mountain, or perhaps in a small rowboat in the middle of a vast ocean—or both, in this visceral mind bender that will provoke discussion long after it turns your world upside-down.”
Nicholas Pryor, Lily Gladstone, DJ Qualls, Kate Lyn Sheil, Lin Shaye, Toby Huss and Mark Kelly also star. Buster’s Mal Heart opens in limited release April 8. Thanks to Fandango for the video.
