(Joe Swanberg, US 2015, 85 min., DCP)
Rochester Premiere. The discovery of a bone and a gun sends a husband and wife on separate adventures over the course of a weekend. Digging for Fire, the latest film by prolific independent filmmaker Joe Swanberg (Drinking Buddies), is a profound meditation on subjects of love and trust, and features a strong cast of emerging and established actors: Jake Johnson, Rosemarie Dewitt, Orlando Bloom, Brie Larson, Sam Rockwell, Anna Kendrick, and Mike Birbiglia.
“Swanberg has always explored relationship dynamics in his films, from long-distance challenges to ambiguous workplace romances, but none of his films have been as symbolically meaningful or emotionally mature as this one.” – Indiewire
