Rating:
Not Available
An official selection of the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival, FAIRHAVEN dissects the lives of four thirty-something's in the tradition of films like BEAUTIFUL GIRLS and GARDEN STATE. Ten years after abruptly leaving his hometown, wayward bad-boy Dave (Chris Messina of TV's THE MINDY PROJECT, VICKY CHRISTINA BARCELONA) returns for his estranged father's funeral and is reunited with his old friends Jon (writer/director Tom O'Brien), a former high school football star trying to figure out his next move, and Sam (Rich Sommer of TV's MAD MEN), a real estate agent carrying a torch for his ex-wife (Emmy®-Nominee Sarah Paulson of TV's GAME CHANGE). The three settle into familiar patterns, but their friendship falters when Dave reveals the secret reason he left town.
