This is a plug. Director/screenwriter Matthew Porterfield is shooting his next film, Metal Gods, this coming summer in Baltimore and is to be released in 2010.
TWO DAMAGED TEENAGERS LIVING IN A BALTIMORE SUBURB FORM AN UNLIKELY BOND WHEN THEIR LIVES ARE THROWN TOGETHER BY A SUDDEN ACT OF VIOLENCE.
Sean’s a bright kid, but a bad student, a troublemaker living in the pattern of his brother, Trevor, and his brother’s friends, a wild group of small-time drug dealers and drop-outs led by the crazy but charismatic Lee. After their meeting at a party, Sean becomes infatuated with Jenny, a girl from his neighborhood, two years his senior, with good looks and a dark disposition.
Jenny travels the periphery of Trevor’s circle, and has an undeserved reputation for doing drugs and sleeping around. When Jenny scorns Lee, worlds collide as Lee plans revenge with Trevor’s help. Entangled by circumstance and forced to act, Sean and Jenny form a desperate alliance, upsetting the balance of power within their social sphere. The narrative explores these lives over the course of a week, revealing their extraordinary character through the ordinary routines of home, work, and school.
