Kevin Smith is coming to town next Wednesday, June 13, to host a screening of Bindlestiffs, the latest project from his production company SModcast Pictures. The screening is going down at the Ritz East at 7:00 PM, admission ranges from $50 – $100, advance tickets are available here.
Three underage, virgin, prep-school misfits, suspended on a bogus graffiti charge, flee to the inner city in an attempt to live the plot of The Catcher in the Rye – a book they have neither read, much less understand. This motion picture graphically portrays their noble quest to surrender their virginities (as well as shed their sobriety and sanity) to the encountered gatekeepers of “real experience”: vagrants, prostitutes, and crack fiends. Hot on their tail is Charlie, a paranoid, deranged security guard, who, convinced that they plan to stage a school shooting, aims to shut them down and save his piece of America.
BINDLESTIFFS was made for pennies and porno tokens, with no parental permission (much less permits) by a team of horny teenage wetdreamers, themselves escaping to commit some “real” filmmaking.
