The Regular

Every coffee shop/bakery has it's regular customers.  They come in every day, order the same thing, sit in the same place.  But no one sticks around forever.  This slice of life film examines what it means to be "a regular" with a supernatural twist.

The Patriots                                                    5M 1F

Loosely based on the takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge back in 2016, this darkly comedic look at white privilege, the constitution, gun violence, and what it means to be American is supercharged with red, white and blue (emphasis on the red).  When young Jimmy joins up with a group of American terrorists in snowy Oregon and his gun goes off, he sets in motion nothing short than a constitutional crisis.
