Texas Independent Film Network: Searching for Sonny
August 20, 2012
5321 East Mockingbird Lane , Dallas, TX
Dallas Film Society has joined the Texas Independent Film Network and the Angelika Film Center to present a series of Texas-made indie films screened with the filmmakers in attendance.
Each month starting in August, we will show one of four films that are traveling to cities throughout the state to promote Texas Film and to expose new audiences to some of the states most talented directors, producers and talent. It’s a great chance to support local film, meet the filmmakers and discuss filmmaking in Texas.
The screenings are $10 and open to the public. We have limited free seats available for DFS Members who show their membership card at the theater.
August 20 - Searching for Sonny: With Director Andrew Disney in attendance. When directionless twenty-something Elliot Knight attends his 10-year reunion in Texas, a complex murder mystery leads his crew of high school pals on a mission to find their missing friend, Sonny. Elliot enlists the help of his fraternal twin Calvin, a pot-smoking barista, his timorous former classmate Gary Noble, and his high school sweetheart Eden Mercer. While digging up a forgotten time capsule, the friends discover the body of Eden’s husband, and find themselves the chief suspects in his murder. The mystery turns meta when the three bumbling friends discover that everything happening seems eerily similar to a play they performed in high school — a play Sonny wrote. Deception leads to problems, and it soon seems that shady businessmen and school officials are involved in a complex scheme of money and murder.
