Following from the incredible Meek's Cutoff, catch director Kelly Reichardt's acclaimed feature Old Joy for one night only at the Cube. Old Joy is a poignant drama about the loss of friendship over time, written by Jon Raymond.
Mark (Daniel London) is settled in Portland when he gets a call out of the blue from his old friend Kurt (Will Oldham). The two set off on a camping weekend in Oregon's Cascade Mountains, to find some local hot springs and catch up...
This is no Brokeback Mountain, but a study of time and friendship. It becomes clear over the course of the trip that the two men have not seen each other in years and awkward silences creep in as Mark and Kurt struggle to establish common ground in their lives again.
