String Theory

2009 NR

The lives of everyday Los Angelinos collide over the future of a well-worn Santa Monica church in this meditative indie from filmmakers Jacob Freydont-Attie and Joshua Milrad that gets its title from a developing branch of theoretical physics. The players involved include a morally corrupted preacher, a city councilman, a young boy who can't speak, a homeless man and a surfer with an unquiet mind.
