Writer: David Lewis (writer)
Genre: Drama, Romance
Tagline: Some loves stand the test of time
Plot: An unfulfilled gay man in a stagnant relationship finds his life changed forever when he meets a struggling writer visiting the Redwoods Country.
Both original and incredibly romantic, Redwoods tells the story of an already-partnered man whose love is tested when a mysterious drifter passes through his small Northern California town. Everett (Brendan Bradley) and Miles (Tad Coughenour) are in a comfortably platonic relationship, which is held together by raising their son. While his family travels out of town, introverted Everett finally has time to himself—that is until Chase (Matthew Montgomery), a strikingly handsome writer, pulls up in front of his house. Shot amidst ancient redwoods, David Lewis’ (Rock Haven) film is a stunning ode to the power of love.
Shot in the gay Russian River resort town of Guerneville, David Lewis' new film is leagues more polished than his debut feature, Rock Haven and it's got even more soul, if that's possible. Redwoods will suck you into its warm cinematic womb and won't let go.
