Façade Details


The final hour and a half of a troubled teenager's life is recounted in real time in this independent drama. Harold ([[Performer~P364506~Patrick J. Adams~patrickjadams]]) is celebrating his 19th birthday, but so far he doesn't feel much like partying. Not long after writing a letter to the father he hasn't seen in years, Harold says goodbye to his mother, Sarah ([[Performer~P240454~Marilyn McIntyre~marilynmcintyre]]), and her boyfriend, Ronnie ([[Performer~P29467~Joseph Hacker~josephhacker]]), who are heading off for a vacation in Hawaii; Harold has learned that Sarah will be marrying Ronnie, which he hardly regards as good news. Harold's best friend, Johnny ([[Performer~P475861~Brian Bedard~brianbedard]]), stops by to show him a good time; Johnny is a hard-partying ne'er-do-well who has invited along a drug dealer named Tits ([[Performer~P475863~Scott Cushman~scottcushman]]) for the evening, to Harold's chagrin. Before long, Shannon ([[Performer~P475862~Shannon Coltrane~shannoncoltrane]]), Harold's girlfriend, stops by; Shannon had plans of her own for Harold's birthday, and isn't happy about the presence of Tits or Johnny, the latter of whom dated Shannon for a while. Meanwhile, Tits busies himself with Kathy ([[Performer~P475864~Courtney Andersen~courtneyandersen]]), one of Shannon's air-headed friends. Before long Tits begins distributing samples of his wares and emotions are raised to a fever pitch, pushing Harold toward a terrible decision. Façade was the first feature film from writer, director, and actor [[Performer~P475861~Brian Bedard~brianbedard]]. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
