A couple of years back, a contributor named April wrote one of the most visited entries on this site: Afghan Whigs – Gentlemen.Â Now, she’s contacted me to let me know that she’s written and directed a movie called “Before We Get to Seattle.”Â Here’s the description from the project’s website:
Itâ€™s 1991 and Chloe, a runaway, is leaving for Seattle with her bass player boyfriend, Slater. She dreams of grunge rock stardom and â€œgetting the hell out of Jersey.â€ Before the two hit the highway Chloe insists they stop off at a local deli to pick up supplies. Her real motive is to see her best friend Michelle one last time before she leaves.
Chloe has a secret and she desperately needs a favor. Michelle, who is very busy making sandwiches for a long line of hungry customers is both overjoyed and frustrated at the sudden appearance of her missing friend. Chloe and Michelle hide out in the store bathroom and are constantly interrupted by angry store customers while they solve Chloeâ€™s big problem.
I’d encourage you all to have a look, and to do what you can to support independent film!
