Wisconsin Drama HALFWAY Set for World Premiere at Dallas International This Weekend
April 15, 2016 by Screenmag
Should our past actions allow for prejudice against us? Can we expect to be absolved of all blame simply because we have served our punishment? Is a small, largely ignorant town capable of change? In HALFWAY, a recently released convict struggles to adapt to life on probation in a conservative Wisconsin farming community. The Midwest-made feature is set to make its World Premiere this Saturday at the Dallas International Film Festival.
Featuring powerful, honest performances (THE BLIND SIDE's Quinton Aaron leads this exceptional cast) and stellar cinematography (Benjamin Thomas), HALFWAY reflects on the trials of a social outcast who struggles to gain acceptance in a society that rejects him. Ben Caird’s stunning debut feature is an emotional journey that captures the experience of being an outsider who, in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles, has only one choice: to persevere.
