A Single Shot, based from the novel by writer Matthew F. Jones, is a rustic-seedy-look-over your-shoulder-anxiety inducing-attack-film. The main character, John Moon (Sam Rockwell), is a simple, easygoing hunter living with the news that his wife wants a divorce. Living off the land and hunting are the only things keeping him alive. Everything changes when he misses a shot meant for a deer, resulting in the accidental killing a young woman. John has two options: report the death or hide the body. This tragedy serves as the beginning of a string of consequences in his newly dramatic life. Thousands of dollars and rugged backwoods thugs attempt to make John Moon’s life extremely unpleasant. This is not your typical crime drama, but it is filled with enough suspense to have your anxiety on high alert.
Directed by David M. Rosenthal, A Single Shot, will debut to the public September 20, 2013. Everything from the cast (Sam Rockwell, William H. Macy, and Kelly Reilly), the cinematography and lighting make this film stick out in a genre plagued by so many “cat and mouse” reincarnates. Sam Rockwell (Seven Psychopaths) is perfectly cast as an innocently, romantic hunter who has been placed in the most awkward, painful position of his life. Adding to the genre of “Redneck Renaissance,” A Single Shot will have you furrowing your brow in anticipation. This film is undoubtedly a welcome addition to the TriBeCa Film family.
