A family reunion takes a tense turn in Take Me to the River

A Nebraskan family reunion couldn’t seem more backwards to a gay Californian teenager. If Ryder (Love, Simon and Escape Room star Logan Miller) had his way, he’d choose a moment just like this to come out – the bigger the scene the better! For the sake of his conditionally-accepting parents (Richard Schiff and Robin Weigert), however, Ryder agrees to keep quiet… save parading around the picnic in his most audacious pair of short-shorts.

Ryder’s antics raise dubious eyebrows from his hardened cowboy relatives, but nine-year-old Molly (Ursula Parker) can’t get enough. She follows her cool California cousin everywhere. After lunch, they walk to the barn to look for a bird’s nest in the rafters Their strange encounter, and whatever happened while the two escaped their family’s watchful eyes, makes Ryder the sudden target of suspicion, and places him at the center of a long buried family secret.

Featuring excellent performances from a stellar cast (also including Josh Hamilton and Azura Skye), Take Me to the River is an intense indie family drama from writer-director Matt Sobel.
