Lebanon Movie with Samantha Mathis and Josh Hoskins

October 21st, 2008 No comments

I got a call from one of my casting directors about working on Lebanon by Ben Hickernell (Writer/Director).  I was really excited because it featured Samantha Mathis (Vicki) whom I had a crush on since watching Pump Up The Volume. The film also starred Josh Hoskins (Will), Rachel Kitson (CJ), Ian Peakes (Andy), Mary Beth Hurt (Jeanette). They didn’t have enough people on set so I got to play several characters in highschool.

Will, a 35-year-old Philadelphia advertising exec, heads to Lebanon, PA to bury his recently deceased father. He forms an unexpected friendship with CJ, his newly pregnant 17-year-old second cousin. As CJ struggles with what she will do next, Will feels responsible for someone else for the first time and has to face his own decisions regarding his priorities.

Lebanon is a bittersweet comic drama about the divisions in current American culture — pro-life vs. pro-choice, baby-boomer vs. Gen-Y, sushi vs. steakhouse. Briskly plotted and surprisingly moving, Lebanon explores the cultural divide in America through the lives of one extended family.
