Summer Hill Entertainment new title for Cannes! WORKING MAN starring Peter Gerety and Talia Shire

 10622_TED_P_working%20man.jpg

From Clarke Peterson, producer of RAMPART and the Oscar winning MONSTER, come this timely and poignant masterpiece. When the last factory in a small Rust Belt town closes its doors, an unlikely hero emerges in dutiful, quiet Allery Parkes (Peter Gerety, HBO’s “The Wire”). A career employee of the factory, the aging Allery can’t reconcile how to live a life simply sitting at home doing nothing, and against the advice and pleas of his loving wife, Iola (two-time Oscar nominee Talia Shire, “Rocky”, “The Godfather”), he forms an unlikely friendship with his charismatic neighbor, Walter Brewer (Billy Brown, ABC’s “How to Get Away with Murder”), in order to revive the defunct factory. 

Available outside the USA and Canada.

The Chicago Sun-Times, Washington Post and New York Times all agree.

Writer-director Robert Jury has pieced together a timely, elegiac slice of Rust Belt life and of the good men and women who want nothing more than to work and provide for their families but find themselves on the outside looking in.” 

Richard Roeper
CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

“What starts out as a drama about Quixotic resistance in the face of a failing Rust Belt economy, and the false promises of politicians, gradually turns into something deeper and more moving, thanks to the fine cast (which includes Talia Shire).”

“Slowly, quietly, writer-director Robert Jury’s debut feature becomes not just about finding money in tough times, but finding meaning.”

Michael O'Sullivan
THE WASHINGTON POST

“An unconventional labor story, the movie doesn’t bask in the triumph of rebellion; instead, it’s an introspective portrait of men for whom working is a replacement for living.  It’s also a coming-of-age film about the second adolescence of men at retirement age who must find a way to define themselves when the structure of work has been stripped away.  The writer-director, Robert Jury, pairs Allery’s crumbling sense of self with images from the town’s decaying infrastructure, lingering on rusted fences and the boxy utilitarian homes of laborers without work…. the simple familiarity of the visuals strikes an honest note.”
