'Locating Silver Lake' celebrates its international premiere at Edinburgh Film Festival!
Maybe it sounds like the classical story of growing up: College-graduate Daniel (Josh Peck) gets dumped by his girlfriend and moves to Los Angeles to find his place there as a writer. Daniel meets Seth (Finn Wittrock), the flamboyant leader of a motley group of friends - one of them Daniel's old friend Ella (Zelda Williams). Feeling a little lost in life, Daniel gets involved with Seth, who seems to have the answers to all his questions.
But what's really behind these glittery friendships? What role does Daniel's landlord José (Amaury Nolasco) play, why did Mack (Robbie Kay) leave the group in a mad rush and what motivates Ella's sister Talya (Aubrey Peeples) to stand up for Daniel?
Locating Silver Lake is a movie full of turnarounds - nothing is what it seems to be at first sight. Or maybe it is? You may need a reflection period or maybe to rewatch the film to look behind the scenes and realise the story within the story - but as soon as you see the light Locating Silver Lake is more than a run-of-the-mill independent movie! It comes up with an outstanding cast, most notably Finn Wittrock's performance. Like no other Wittrock manages to breathe a soul into Seth's controversial key character.
The cast includes Josh Peck, Finn Wittrock, Aubrey Peeples, Amaury Nolasco, Valerie Cruz, Zelda Williams, Robbie Kay, Dan Lauria and many more.
After the international premiere in Edinburgh last week, writer and producer Eric Bilitch presents his latest movie Locating Silver Lake at the Breckenridge Film Festival in Colorado (Sept. 20-23, 2018) !
