Tom Gilroy
Conditioned into an ethos of self-sufficiency by his overbearing mother, Atticus has been preached to about the dangers of television, ticks and corn syrup saturated cupcakes. More importantly however, she’s passed onto him the lessons of bearing the brunt of life’s trials without running to others for aid. Following her untimely passing, the eleven year-old continues to be haunted by her eccentric teachings.
Hardly looking back, Atticus takes to the wilderness, fending for himself at every turn until having a curious run in with a man named Carter. The two learn together just how much they have in common while joining forces out on the open road of upstate New York. Holding fast to an engaging story line from start to finish, director Tom Gilroy incorporates gorgeous locations and creative talent, all into a single, powerful feature. –Terence Gardner
Tom Gilroy (Director/Writer) wrote and directed the short Touch Base, starring Lili Taylor, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and the critically acclaimed feature Spring Forward starring Liev Schreiber, Ned Beatty, Ian Hart and Campbell Scott. His plays -- most notably The Invisible Hand and Halcyon Days -- have been produced in several US cities and around the world. Along with co-creator of The Daily Show Lizz Winstead, Tom just completed a two-year run as the director and head writer of the political satire theatre project Wake Up, World, and last year was commissioned (alongside Sophie Calle, Sam Taylor-Wood and Albert Maysles) by music legends R.E.M. to create It Happened Today, a short work inspired by their final album. The Cold Lands is his second feature film.
