“Phoenix, Oregon” returns to Portland
#OregonMade Film Series presents a comedy of midlife reinvention and the redeeming power of friendship, PHOENIX, OREGON, returning home for its very last Oregon screening date after a tremendously successful 3-month national tour.
Defying midlife haze, two friends seize an unlikely opportunity to reinvent their lives, quitting their jobs to restore an old bowling alley and serve the “world’s greatest pizza.” The film takes a comedic look at the existential crisis many face when trying to find meaning and relevancy at midlife.
Starring James Le Gros, Lisa Edelstein, Jesse Borrego, Diedrich Bader, and Kevin Corrigan.
The filmmakers will be in attendance to provide an introduction and a discussion of their unique and successful tour as well as a Q&A for this film after the screening.
Written and directed by Gary Lundgren (CALVIN MARSHALL, REDWOOD HIGHWAY, BLACK ROAD).
Cinematography by Patrick Neary.
