Another Harvest Moon getting theatrical release


Panorama Entertainment has nabbed U.S. theatrical distribution rights to Another Harvest Moon, starring Ernest Borgnine, Piper Laurie, Anne Meara, Doris Roberts, Richard Schiff and Cybill Shepherd. Panorama is planning a February 2011 release in the southwest and southeast. The film was directed by Greg W. Swartz with screenplay by Jeremy T. Black.

Another Harvest Moon has received three nominations from next month’s Orlando Film Festival, including Best Lead Actor, Ernest Borgnine; Best Supporting Actress, Doris Roberts; and Best Ensemble Cast.

Here is the synopsis for Another Harvest Moon:

Another Harvest Moon is a sensitive drama about four elderly Americans coping with life in a nursing home. Frank (Ernest Borgnine), Ella (Anne Meara), Alice (Doris Roberts) and June (Piper Laurie) gather each morning for a game of cards. They have become like family to one another, offering unyielding support, constant bickering and strong opinions about life, death and everything in between.

One morning Frank reveals to Ella that he no longer remembers his wife’s face and that he doesn’t want to live to endure another debilitating stroke. He persuades his son Jeffrey (Richard Schiff) to give him his old gun because by holding it he finds a way to remember his World War II buddies. But perhaps he has another motive for wanting the weapon.

Frank’s revelation sets off a struggle between Ella and the ever-optimistic Alice as they both try to affect his decision while privately dealing with their own fears.

That Labor Day Jeffrey, daughter Vickie (Cybill Shepherd) and grandson Jack (Cameron Monaghan) take Frank on a camping trip where his spirits are lifted.

Back at the nursing home Frank ponders his decision and his next move. His friends and family must confront their own feelings about faith, dignity and our obligations to our loved ones.

MarVista Entertainment will actively promote Another Harvest Moon at the upcoming American Film Market.
