TRUE WEST is a character study that examines the relationship between Austin, a screenwriter, and his older brother Lee. Austin is house-sitting their mother’s home 40 miles east of Los Angeles while she is in Alaska. During his stay he is confronted by his brother, who proceeds to bully his way into staying at the house and using Austin’s car. In addition, the screenplay which Austin is pitching to his connection in Hollywood somehow gets taken over by the pushy con-man tactics of Lee, and the brothers find themselves forced to cooperate in the creation of a story that will make or break both their lives.
True West a black comedy. Directed by Travis Handcock
