“Seven strangers wake aboard a passenger jet in mid-flight, with no idea how they got there – and no idea where they are headed. Cut off from the cockpit and with a dying smartphone as their sole source of communication, they learn the U.S. is under a devastating attack…and they might be the only survivors.”
On Monday night, at the historic Texas Theatre, I was pleasantly reminded how crazy talented my friends are. That’s right, I saw Chariot.
If you’re not familiar with Chariot, it’s a flick written by Eric Vale and directed by Brad Osborne. The cast includes: Anthony Montgomery (Star Trek: Enterprise), Brina Palencia (Star-Crossed), Ian Sinclair, Michelle Sherrill, Joe Nemmers, David DeLao, & Leslie Hippensteel.
Never had the privilege of seeing any of Mr. Vale’s work outside the realm of anime. He did a hell of a job writing a screenplay based around the 2003 disappearance of a 727 (Can’t wait to see what Eric comes up with next).
The interactions between Ian Sinclair and Brina Palencia are quite something and often hilarious. Their repartee is one of the many reasons I enjoyed this movie. Another was Joe Nemmers and his portrayal of Michael.
Eric’s script, Brad’s direction, the performances… Chariot is further proof that quality film can be done in Texas. Not a film critic, but see this movie.
