ReRun, a new feature film directed by Alyssa Rallo Bennett and written by Gary O. Bennett of Stonestreet Studios, will world premiere on October 15th at the Woodstock Film Festival.
In a modern day twist on ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’, George Benson, played by Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future, Who Framed Roger Rabbit) is haunted by tragedy, the loss of Violet, the ‘wayward girl’ who he had a soft heart for, due to an accident he may have been able to prevent. Humoring what he thinks is the youthful imagination of his grandson, George stumbles into an invisible portal hiding in his closet. Falling ‘to the other side’ into his younger body, he is able to face his conflicts and troubles with new light along with a temptation to try to change the past or possibly re-envision it.
ReRUN, marks the Bennetts third feature film collaboration. The Pack , which they co-wrote and was directed by Alyssa, was accepted into the Tribeca Film Festival and a dozen other film festivals, winning multiple awards, it was released theatrically in NY & LA and distributed by FilmRise. The Bennetts first collaboration, Rain Without Thunder, and has become a cult classic. The film stars Jeff Daniels, Linda Hunt, Betty Buckley, Frederick Forrest, Graham Greene, Ming Na Wen, Austin Pendleton, and Steve Zahn. Rain was theatrically released and distributed by Orion Classics, featured in over a dozen major international film festivals from the Berlin Film Festival to the Toronto International Film Festival and now available on Amazon Prime.
