Who Loves the Sun (2006)
A troubled young man’s sudden return after a mysterious five-year disappearance reunites him with his wife and his best friend. Written and directed by Matthew Bissonnette and starring Lukas Haas, Molly Parker and Adam Scott, Who Loves the Sun features perfectly pitched performances, a great soundtrack from Portastatic, songs from the Silver Jews, and some hilariously realistic bad fighting.

“Molly Parker…exudes a sexual heat and power that leaps from the screen.” – L.A. Weekly
Looking For Leonard (2002)
