With the festival circuit coming to a close for Jason Michael Brescia’s second feature film Bridge and Tunnel, the team has released it’s final trailer. This one specifically for theaters.
The film Stars Ryan Metcalf, Arjun Gupta, Mary Kate Wiles, Annet Mahendru, Joe Murphy, Brianne Berkson, Chris Viemeister, Natalie Knepp and Wass Stevens as they experience life in Long Island, New York. Childhood friends Sal, Terry, Nate, Eric and Lina have had to grow up in a post 9/11 New York. They graduated high school at the peak of the War on Terror, and began adulthood amidst a global financial crisis. Now at the crossroads of their mid-twenties they find themselves unhappy with their places in life.
Having seen the film and enjoying it, I can firmly recommend it, especially older teens and those in their mid to late twenties. It’s relatable and that alone should be a selling point. The characters in this film represent those of us who went to school, stayed out of trouble, graduated from college and then had nothing to show for it in the professional world. Times are tough, and while the older generation likes to throw around the phrase “you have it easy these days,” it’s a bit misguided.
Bridge and Tunnel depicts this message with vigor and a bunch of self awareness.
