Moviate invites you to a one night only special film event as we welcome Lodge Kerrigan to Harrisburg for the 24th Annual Moviate Underground Film Festival!
William Keane (Damian Lewis) is barely able to cope. It has been six months since his six-year-old daughter was abducted from New York City’s Port Authority Bus Terminal while traveling with him. Repeatedly drawn to the site of the abduction, Keane wanders the bus station, compulsively replaying the events of that fateful day, as if hoping to change the outcome. One day he meets a financially strapped woman, Lynn Bedik (Amy Ryan), and her seven-year-old daughter, Kira (Abigail Breslin), at a transient hotel. Keane becomes increasingly attached to Kira and, in a harrowing climax, uses her in an attempt to fill the void left by his daughter’s disappearance.
The 4K restoration of KEANE from the 35mm original camera negative was supervised by Lodge Kerrigan and Kristina Boden. Nat Jencks was the colorist, Larry Blake was the re-recording mixer, and Travis Gerdes was the post-production supervisor. It was completed in early 2022 at PostWorks, New York.
Lodge Kerrigan's writer/director feature credits include CLEAN, SHAVEN (1993), CLAIRE DOLAN (1998), KEANE (2004), and REBECCA H. (RETURN TO THE DOGS) (2010). He co-created, wrote and directed the television series THE GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE. His television directing credits also include episodes of HOMELAND, THE AMERICANS and THE KILLING.
