A new crime thriller starring former Rescue Me star Jack McGee (‘Chief’) has walked away with one of the plum trophies at one of L.A’s most prestigious film festivals.
Crime thriller The Wolves of Savin Hill, from up-and-coming filmmaker John Beaton Hill, has won the Audience Award for Best Feature Film at the Independent Filmmakers Showcase in Los Angeles.
The movie, starring McGee, David Cooley, and Kurt Fuller, tells of childhood friends from the streets of Boston who drift apart following a shocking discovery deep in the woods of Savin Hill. Years later a tragic murder brings them together again. But for one man, it’s no mistake. A trap has been set…
After serving time for a crime he didn’t commit, Tom Grey (David Cooley) is released from prison with a score to settle: he is dead-set on tracking down the man who set him up…his childhood best friend and L.A. cop, Sean O’Brien (Brian Scannell from Gone Baby Gone)
Ravaged by his friend’s betrayal, Tom hunts Sean through the dark streets of Los Angeles and finds himself trapped in a web of lies only a devil could weave. Face to face at last, the two men are caught in a final and explosive showdown. After years of gut-wrenching deception, it can only end with one man standing.
Following the award win at the IFS, the filmmakers have been approached by distributors from every corner.
