The latest film written and directed by filmmaker Timothy Hines (Tomorrow’s Today, 10 Days in a Madhouse), stars Lydia Pearl Pentz, Cali Scolari as two spoiled and sheltered rich heiresses who are forced to confront survival on the most basic level, in the pre-electrified American forest of the Pacific Northwest in the Great Depression of the 1930s after their fortune is stolen away from them by two evil aunts played by Susan Goforth and Heidi Kravitz. Matt Silver is sardonically funny as the hitman Mr. Button sent to make sure the girls never return from their fate.

“I have always loved the Clueless, Legally Blonde, Mean Girls genre of entitled girls being forced to meet reality,” beams director Timothy Hines, “This comedy is filled with wonderfully awful moments as the girls encounter people with expectations of being taken care of and increasingly are force to accept their reversal of fortunes until they find their humanity.”
Co-starring in the movie is comic Teddy Smith who delivers a wonderfully crusty performance as recluse Silas Colter, who on first encounter with the girls has his beloved truck accidentally blown up by them.
The epic western period movie is slated for a Summer theatrical release. Hines and producer Susan Goforth are shopping the film and currently talking with a major distributor to pick the film up for release. Hines’ last two movies are distributed on over 60 major plateforms.

“This is the best movie I have ever made,” says Hines, “And it is darkly and deeply funny. I cannot wait to share the picture with the world this summer.
