The Indie Film Corner: ‘Prince Avalanche’

in Arts by

The Indie film “Prince Avalanche” will be showing at the USCB Center For the Arts on Monday, October 7 at 7 p.m. The film, directed by David Gordon Green and starring Emile Hirsch and Paul Rudd, is in English and is rated R.

Driven by striking performances from Rudd and Hirsch, “Prince Avalanche” is an offbeat comedy about two men painting traffic lines on a desolate country highway that’s been ravaged by wildfire. Against this dramatic setting, beautifully shot by frequent Green collaborator Tim Orr, the men bicker and joke with each other, eventually developing an unlikely friendship. Funny, meditative and at times surreal, “Prince Avalanche” features a moving score by Explosions in the Sky and David Wingo, and was loosely adapted from an Icelandic film called “Either Way.” It was an official selection at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, the 2013 SXSW Film Festival and best director at the 2013 Berlin International Film Festival.

USCB Center for the Arts is located at 801 Carteret Street, Beaufort. Tickets for adults are $7, seniors $6, students $5. Call USCB Center for the Arts box office at 843-521-4145 or purchase day of performance. Box office opens one hour prior to show time.
