Struggling teen searches for hope in indie film this Thursday. August 15 at 6 p.m.

Posted on: August 11, 2013

Robbie is a poor Mississippi Delta teenager struggling to take care of his much-loved half-brother, Fess.  His mentally ill mother has left town. His grandmother is elderly and his older brother creates more problems the times he does show up.

The Murphy Library is showing Film Movement’s The Dynamiter this Thursday at 6 p.m.  Running time is 73 minutes and this independent film is not rated but may be appropriate for high school.

In his comments to the press, director Matthew Gordon notes that “The Dynamiter is a story of creating hope, something we all have to do every day or else we will have no life to speak of.”
