In a ranking of horrible things that can happen to you, being brainwashed by a weird kind of worm places just above having to find dinner in New York City without a reservation on a Friday night.
That’s the problem faced by Shane Carruth and Amy Seimetz, the lead actors from the former’s film Upstream Color, in a short that played at this year’s SXSW and just premiered on Vimeo.
We’ll Find Something is a film from writer-director Casey Gooden about a couple visiting New York and trying to find some food. Over the course of 12 minutes, we see their all-too-realistic struggle to settle on a restaurant put stress on the tiny fractures of their relationship.
Both Seimetz and Carruth have been busy since the 2013 independent sci-fi film made us care deeply about some pigs. Carruth is about to begin production on his third film, The Modern Ocean, which will star Keanu Reeves, Anne Hathaway, Daniel Radcliffe, and Jeff Goldblum. Seimetz, a successful writer-director in her own right, is mounting the TV adaptation of Steven Soderbergh’s The Girlfriend Experience with Lodge Kerrigan for Starz.
