A raw look at the effects of childhood trauma through the eyes of two estranged cousins, writer-director Andrew Rowe’s “unique, rather unflinching perspective on the fragile nature of the human psyche”* bows July 2.
CROWN AND ANCHOR follows James Downey (Michael Rowe), who is living a disciplined and straight edge lifestyle as a result of growing up with an abusive alcoholic father. His estranged cousin Danny (Matt Wells) is drowning his own trauma with drugs and booze. When their lives are forced to intersect once more, they each begin to unravel as the past returns with violent and tragic consequences.
Featuring a blistering punk/hardcore soundtrack, CROWN AND ANCHOR stars Michael Rowe (‘Deadshot’ on TV’s Arrow), Matt Wells (“Designated Survivor”), Natalie Brown (“Saw V”), Robert Joy (“CSI : NY”), Stephen McHattie (“Orphan Black”) and Ben Cotton (“The X-Files”).
