ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR)-Our series on the St. Louis International Film Festival continues with ‘Drawing Home.’ It’s the story of an unlikely couple that falls in love and begs the question: Can you find “home” in another person?
Actors Juan Riedinger and Julie Lynn Mortenson joined us on KPLR 11 to discuss the film.
In 1920s Boston, east coast debutante Catharine Robb is dating the most eligible bachelor in the world, John D. Rockefeller III. Her future seems set because she has a dream life in the upper echelons of society. But Catherine finds her careful plans upended when she meets a young painter, Peter Whyte, from one of the most beautiful places on earth, the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
Although their worlds are polar opposites, a mutual love of art draws them together.
They soon face a universal question: Can you find ‘home’ in another person? Inspired by the true story of the central couple, ‘Drawing Home’ features a cast that includes Kate Mulgrew (‘Orange is The New Black’), Emmy winner Peter Strauss (‘Rich Man, Poor Man’), Kristin Griffith, Rutger Hauer, and Wallace Shawn.
The film was shot on location in Canada`s gorgeous Banff and Yoho National Parks.
A jazz trio will play in the theatre from 6 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. and a 1928 pierce arrow will be parked out front of the theatre for photo opps.
