CineCache Returns with COLLABORATOR

CollaboratorThis week, Chlotrudis welcomes the return of CineCache, a partnership between Chlotrudis and the Brattle Film Foundation where a film is screened pre-theatrical release and is followed by a discussion.  This season's opener is COLLABORATOR.  The directorial debut of Hal Hartley regular Martin Donovan, COLLABORATOR is the riveting, darkly comedic tale of Robert Longfellow (Donovan), a famous playwright who can’t seem to catch a break. His recent Broadway play is a flop and his marriage is on the rocks. Retreating back to his childhood home to visit his mother, Robert crosses paths with his old neighbor, Gus (Morse), a right-wing, ex-con who still lives at home with his mom. When a drunken reunion goes terribly wrong, Gus ends up holding Robert hostage at gunpoint as social status, celebrity and the imminent threat of violence collide, building to a climax that will leave both men forever changed.  Watch the Trailer:
