Crossroads Film Society, in conjunction with IFC Films, will present directors Alex and Andrew Smith's feature film Walking Out, produced by Brunson Green (The Help), on October 11, 2017, at 7 p.m., at the Malco Grandview Theatre in Madison, MS. The film stars Bill Pullman (Independence Day, Sleepless in Seattle) and Matt Bomer (Magic Mike XXL, The Magnificent Seven) among others.
Walking Out is based on the masterpiece American short story written by David Quammen. In this film adaptation, Josh Wiggins portrays David, a typical teenage urbanite who travels to rural Montana to go hunting with his estranged "off the grid" father Cal (Matt Bomer). As they ascend deep into the wilderness, father and son struggle to connect on any level. When an unexpected encounter with grizzly bears leaves them both with serious injuries, the boy must carry his father to safety if they are to survive.
Brunson Green will be in attendance for the film and a Q&A session.
