Based on the Icelandic film Either Way and written/directed by David Gordon Green (Your Highness, Pineapple Express), Prince Avalanche starring Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch arrives in theaters on August 9, 2013. The film earned its director the Silver Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival and marks Green’s return to quieter, character-driven stories as he delivered with Snow Angels and All the Real Girls.
An odd couple of sorts, meditative and stern Alvin and his girlfriend’s brother, Lance, dopey and insecure, leave the city behind to spend the summer in solitude repainting traffic lines down the center of a country highway ravaged by wildfire. As they sink into their job in the remarkable landscape, they learn more than they want to about each other and their own limitations. An unlikely friendship develops through humor and nasty exchanges, leading to surprising affection.
