Movie of the Month: 9 Full Moons

Urban Tales Productions announces the world festival premiere of edgy romantic-drama 9 FULL MOONS starring indie film sensations and Sundance darling Amy Seimetz and Bret Roberts and co-starring Donal Logue, Dale Dickey and Harry Dean Stanton, at the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF), Thursday June 6, 2013 at 7:00PM PT at the SIFF Uptown Cinema, 511 Queen Anne Avenue North, Seattle, WA 98109 – Q&A with cast and crew to follow. An encore performance takes place Saturday June 8th at 1:45PM at the Harvard Exit.

9 FULL MOONS is a powerful, brooding love story about the seemingly implausible relationship between Frankie (Seimetz) and Lev (Roberts), two radically different people who seem to be meant for each other. Set against the country-tinged, singer songwriter hipster music scene of East Los Angeles, Silverlake and Hollywood, the film focuses on the young couple’s struggle with their personal demons as they try to hold on to one another against insurmountable odds.

Frankie is a wildly enigmatic train wreck, a hard-partying social butterfly with an authentic grasp on life. Lev is a solitary, stoic young man with deep aspirations to becoming one of those legendary musical vagabonds he so devoutly looks up to. A near-miss shot of intimacy at an after-hours LA night club leads Frankie and Lev to embark on a frenzied and handicapped affair, their free-spiritedness and non-conformist attitude towards social norms send them off on a rollercoaster ride. In order to jump off that crazy train, and take a serious stab at having a future together, they force themselves to scrutinize and come face-to-face with their painful histories and make peace.

9 FULL MOONS, like life itself, is filled with contradictions; through Frankie and Lev’s trials and tribulations, the film vacillates between genuinely fresh and oddly romantic moments with scenes of bleak, raw, painful emotions and utter despair. It’s a compelling modern love story that ushers in the dawn of the 21st century. 9 FULL MOONS is a unique vice-gripping heart pincher. 9 FULL MOONS is a film that will resonate with all audiences, of all ages, shapes, sizes and colors from around the globe.
