Winner Ashland Independent Film Festival Best Narrative Feature
Middle aged wife and mother Dee (Rachel Harris, member of the comedy improv group the Groundlings) works in a hotel in the small town of International Falls, Minnesota, but she harbours dreams of becoming a stand-up comedian. When Tim (Rob Huebel, Bob’s Burgers, American Dad) - a tired, touring stand-up comic – comes to town Dee finds herself in his hotel room and starts to take a fresh look at her own life.
International Falls is a rewarding comedy-drama which offers an engaging exploration of the human condition, of the way people’s lives grow and change, and the possibilities for realising dreams. Under McGinnis direction the cast deliver believable performances, and Dee emerges as a beautifully realised protagonist.
“International Falls delivers its punchlines as a sock to the gut—which is a good thing.” – rouguevalleymessenger.com
