Prince-Avalanche-UK-Quad-PosterDavid Gordon Green’s Prince Avalanche was one of the many promising films debuting at Sundance at the start of the year, coming away with very positive reviews to match the anticipation.

The comedy-drama went on to win the Silver Berlin Bear for the writer-director at the Berlinale a month later. And after having its UK premiere over the summer at Film4 Summer Screen, it will be reaching our shores next month, and the new UK quad poster has arrived to prove it.

An odd couple of sorts, meditative and stern Alvin and his girlfriend’s brother, Lance, dopey and insecure, leave the city behind to spend the summer in solitude repainting traffic lines down the center of a country highway ravaged by wildfire. As they sink into their job in the remarkable landscape, they learn more than they want to about each other and their own limitations. An unlikely friendship develops through humor and nasty exchanges, leading to surprising affection.

Adapted from Icelandic film Either Way, Prince Avalanche is driven by wonderful performances by Paul Rudd, Emile Hirsch, and Lance LeGault. Writer/director David Gordon Green gets back to his independent roots with this character study, which shows his knack for realistically capturing people and finding meaning in their lives and dreams.

Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch jointly lead the independent movie, with Lance LeGault co-starring, and Lynn Shelton lending her voice as Madison.

Green (Pineapple Express) is directing from a script he wrote, adapting Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurðsson’s original Icelandic film, Either Way.

Prince Avalanche is set to be released here in the UK on 18th October, and definitely looks like one not to be missed next month.
