SHOOTING NICK SHOOTING NICK USA, 105mins Director: Dan Yost Starring: Robert Blanche, Sarah Rosenberg, Tyler Gannon, Dan Yost "Intending to shoot a documentary about American life, middle-aged loser Dan (director Daniel Yost) is instantly kidnapped by a manic couple (Robert Blanche & Sarah Rosenberg) who demand that he documents their trip to the beach on video. Understandably terrified, Dan accepts their instruction and before long is in the back seat filming their every action, the footage of which constructs the film itself. Subjected to such humiliating yet side-splitting taunts as introducing his new found friends to his elderly mother (who he lives with), he remains loyal to his captors; even to the extent of lying to the police. Though firmly sidelined for any drinking and wrongdoing, Dan gradually becomes an essential mediator between the frequently turbulent couple. While remaining behind the camera for most of the journey, his presence is always prevalent within the scene, eventually blurring the line between victim and friend. What begins a chaotic comedy progresses into a fascinating character study, where the initially anarchistic and hostile kidnappers are explored to reveal a greater depth. Their frank conversations offer a vibrant social commentary on America, demonstrating two intelligent fun loving people who have become disillusioned with today's society. Shooting Nick plays out like a fascinating holiday home video, only its content far exceeds its form. It is witty, raw, hilarious and often genuinely touching. With a sharp script and a thoroughly independent spirit, it's a must-see." For more info please contact FilmClub@raindance.co.uk or 0207 287 3833.
