One of the most quietly effective movies of 2012 was Keith Miller’s Welcome to Pine Hill, a simple story full of emotional complexity. It’s the tale of a reformed street-level drug dealer who keeps the straight-and-narrow on his own, working a boring (and sometimes degrading) job as an car insurance claims adjuster. When he receives horrible news, he packs up and journeys to a rural town and points unknown.
Welcome to Pine Hill, which was one of our best reviewed films of 2012, won the Grand Jury Prize at the Slamdance Film Festival and screened here and there afterward, most notably as part of the Brooklyn lineup for New York’s Rooftop Films series.
That’s about to change, as Welcome to Pine Hill has been announced for a run at the IFC Center in New York beginning March 1 — courtesy the exceptional distributor Oscilloscope Pictures. And right in time is the film’s newest movie poster (above) and trailer. If you’d like more, check out our Welcome to Pine Hill review.
