Staff Picks: The Motel Life

Gabe and Alan Polsky’s directorial debut captures a family on the run. Grab the film for $5 (for a limited time only). 

Based on Willy Vlautin’s award-winning novel, The Motel Life is a searing and profound examination of brotherhood set in the timeless Sierra Nevadan frontier. Frank (Emile Hirsch, Into the Wild) and Jerry Lee (Stephen Dorff, Blade Runner, Shadow Boxer) are brothers who get by on telling fantastic stories and creating rich illustrations. When Jerry Lee is involved in a hit-and-run accident, the brothers are forced across the state to the home of Frank’s old flame, Annie (Dakota Fanning, The Twilight Saga). While they seem safe from the law, Jerry Lee’s instability and all-consuming guilt render their future increasingly uncertain.
