Vermont filmmaker Jay Craven (Where the Rivers Flow North) makes regional New England films with major national actors. NORTHERN BORDERS stars Bruce Dern (NEBRASKA) and Geneviève Bujold (Anne of a Thousand Days, King of Hearts), both Oscar, Golden Globe, and Emmy nominees. NORTHERN BORDERS also stars Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick (Moonrise Kingdom.) and 2010 Tony Award nominee Jessica Hecht (Sideways, Friends) and was shot in Vermont and New Hampshire, based on the award-winning Howard Frank Mosher novel. It’s the story of ten year-old Austen Kittredge, who is sent to live on his grandparents’ Kingdom County Vermont farm, where he has wild adventures and uncovers long-festering family secrets. It’s 1956 and Austen experiences the rural Kingdom as a place full of eccentric people including his stubborn grandparents, whose thorny marriage is known as the 40 Years War. A humorous and sometimes startling coming-of-age story, NORTHERN BORDERS evokes Vermont’s wildness, its sublime beauty, a haunted past, and an aura of enchantment. PG-13. 109 Min.
