Robert Scott Wildes’ debut feature film Poor Boy has its world premiere next week at the Tribeca Film Festival in the Viewpoints section. Lou Taylor Pucci, Dov Tiefenbach, Michael Shannon, Dale Dickey, Pat Healy, Amy Ferguson, Amanda Crew and Justin Chatwin star in the pic, which is being described as a darkly nuanced, adrenaline-filled caper set in a modern western landscape.
The exclusive first look gives off a vibe of a kind of over-anxious optimism in the desert as Pucci’s Romeo Griggs explains to his fellow harebrained small-time-crook brother Samson (Tiefenbach) the genesis of a plan to pull off a heist to end all heists. For these misfits, the bet is it won’t go smoothly.
Wildes and Kristin Mann are producing the film, which UTA is selling at Tribeca. Its world premiere screening is April 17 at the Bow Tie Cinemas.
