Braking For Whales, the feature film debut from writer/director Sean McEwen (“The Dougherty Gang”) will be released by Gravitas Ventures on all VOD/Digital & DVD platforms on April 24th, 2020.
Director McEwen co-wrote the script with Tammin Sursok (“Pretty Little Liars”) who stars alongside Tom Felton (The “Harry Potter” franchise), Wendi McLendon-Covey (“The Goldbergs”), David Koechner (“Anchorman: the Legend of Ron Burgandy”) and Austin Swift (“Live By Night”). The award-winning comedy swept the Boston Film Festival awards, winning — Best Actor (Felton) Best Actress (Sursok) and best music; and also won the coveted “Best of Fest” award at the Sanctuary International Film Festival in Brisbane Australia.
Braking For Whales charts the unexpected journey of a dysfunctional brother and sister who are forced to come to terms with each other and themselves over their recently deceased mother’s final wish. Unique, clever and insightful, this is a story that many can relate to – none can push our buttons like family.
“The journey for this film has been incredible and we are excited to have Gravitas release the film to a global audience” states writer/director McEwen.
