You’re Invited: A BAG OF HAMMERS Los Angeles Premiere
We here at Screen Invasion love to promote the little guy – the smaller titles that were created with heart and drive, more than anything the likes of Battleship will ever know. This weekend skip that big budget, brain-damage-inducing excuse for a film and support quality independent movies instead.
If you’re in LA this weekend, check out the premiere of A Bag of Hammers. The 7:20pm showings on Friday and Saturday will be accompanied with a post-screening Q&A with the co-writers and director of the film, Brian Crano and Jake Sandvig. Watch the trailer here:
A Bag of Hammers revolves around the friendship of two charming grifters, Ben and Alan, played by Jason Ritter and Jake Sandvig. Ben and Alan have built a successful though larcenous business, posing as car valets, only to steal the vehicles instead of parking them. Because of their less-than-ideal childhoods and a “job” that allows them to remain likeable boyish rogues well into their 20’s, their penchant for crime is almost forgivable. However, everything changes when they meet a twelve-year-old boy named Kelsey. Neglected by his mother, Kelsey is drawn to Ben and Alan and they to him–eventually, Kelsey becomes part mascot, part protege. His presence ultimately forces Alan and Ben to choose between a life of crime and fun (an extended childhood) and the opportunity to grow up and deal with the emotional consequences that come with it.
