The 25th annual Hamptons International Film Festival kicks off October 5th, and hosts the world premiere of The Tribes of Palos Verdes, directed by the Malloy Brothers.
Emmett and Brendan Malloy direct Jennifer Garner, Maika Monroe, Justin Kirk, Elisabeth Rohm, Goran Visnjic, Joely Fisher, and Alicia Silverstone in this family drama that follows the Masons as they move to the affluent Palos Verdes community just outside of Los Angeles. The movie is slated for release through IFC Films on December 1.
The Tribes of Palos Verdes is based on a beloved coming-of-age novel by Joy Nicholson, and adapted for the screen by Karen Croner. The full synopsis reads:
When the Mason family moves to idyllic Palos Verdes, Calif., the father, Phil, loves it but the mother, Sandy, feels out of place among the fake tans and tennis skirts. Phil and Sandy’s daughter, Medina, is a loner and outcast at school, while her charismatic brother, Jim, is effortlessly popular. When Medina and Jim take up surfing, they must prove their right to share the waves with the tough Bayboys gang that monopolizes their stretch of beach.
Stay tuned for the release of the film this December, and see more from the Malloys here.
