DON’T COME BACK FROM THE MOON starring James Franco, Rashida Jones, Jeff Wahlberg, Robert Scott Crane, Jeremiah Noe and Cheyenne Haynes, is a story of abandonment, when all the men in a remote California desert town walk away from their families, one by one. They leave their angry, frustrated sons and daughters behind – kids who act out, engage in acts of petty burglary and vandalism, and look for love and family connection in the aftermath of their abandonment, all the while trying to understand why their fathers have “gone to the moon,” leaving them to traverse the difficult path to adulthood alone.
DON’T COME BACK FROM THE MOON Director, Bruce Thierry Cheung, makes his feature film debut from an adaptation of Dean Bakopoulos’ celebrated first novel, Please Don’t Come Back from the Moon. Cheung and Bakopoulos co-wrote the screenplay.
The film opens tonight in Los Angeles, New York, select theatres and VOD on January 18th.
