Prince Avalanche Synopsis
An odd couple of sorts, meditative and stern Alvin and his girlfriend’s brother, Lance, dopey and insecure, leave the city behind to spend the summer in solitude repainting traffic lines down the center of a country highway ravaged by wildfire. As they sink into their job in the remarkable landscape, they learn more than they want to about each other and their own limitations. An unlikely friendship develops through humor and nasty exchanges, leading to surprising affection. Adapted from Icelandic film Either Way, Prince Avalanche is driven by wonderful performances by Paul Rudd, Emile Hirsch, and Lance LeGault. Writer/director David Gordon Green gets back to his independent roots with this character study, which shows his knack for realistically capturing people and finding meaning in their lives and dreams. With a soundtrack by Explosions in the Sky and David Wingo and gorgeous cinematography by Tim Orr, Prince Avalanche bucks convention by exploring male bonding in a refreshingly genuine way.

David Gordon Green Reveals How Nicolas Cage Became A Location Scout On Prince Avalanche David Gordon Green Reveals How Nicolas Cage Became A Location Scout On Prince Avalanche
It's hard to believe, but David Gordon Green is a grown-up now. The director who has built a career on aimless, screw-up guys, from the small-town losers of All The Real Girls to the stoner princes of Your Highness, is now a father to two twin boys, and when I spoke to him late last week in New York, he was en route to his first vacation in nearly two years, with big plans for sitting in a hammock by a lake

Prince Avalanche stars Rudd and Hirsch as Alvin and Lance, two road workers hired to paint lines and put up signs along a very long stretch of road in Texas that has recently been devastated by ravenous forest fires. Around them is desolation, which means isolation and boredom.

Tribeca Film Festival: Paul Rudd Plays A Working Stiff In Almost Christmas And Prince Avalanche Tribeca Film Festival: Paul Rudd Plays A Working Stiff In Almost Christmas And Prince Avalanche
Prince Avalanche and Almost Christmas make for a pretty solid double feature. Both are dark comedies that star Paul Rudd as a blue-collar guy trying to prove his worth to his girlfriend and her young daughter. Both attempt tender character portraits, and both appear to be attempts by their directors to reclaim the critical acclaim that once embraced them.

Paul Rudd And David Gordon Green Do Their Best Work In Years In Sundance's Prince Avalanche Paul Rudd And David Gordon Green Do Their Best Work In Years In Sundance's Prince Avalanche
Nobody depicts dudes the way Green does, and making his way up from the nadir that was 2011's The Sitter, Green is back in fine and funny form with Prince Avalanche, a story about-- you guessed it-- two guys stuck together. This time they're on the verge of becoming brothers

When you're faced with a schedule as massive as varied as Sundance's, sometimes you have to pick which film to see based simply on the name. Whether that's the return of a director you admire or simply a movie star you hope to see in person at the premiere-- hey, that's your call

Guess What: David Gordon Green Secretly Made A Movie With Paul Rudd Guess What: David Gordon Green Secretly Made A Movie With Paul Rudd
After going big on his last few projects, director David Gordon Green recently, and secretly, shot a small comedy called Prince Avalanche. It was just last week we were discussing directors who should return to their pasts and with Green remaking Either Way, with Explosions in the Sky scoring, it sounds like he may have heeded our advice.
