Synopsis: What happens when the people we count on to hold us together are
barely holding it together themselves? Written by Thomas Moffett and
directed by Jonas Pate (Deceiver), Shrink is a striking, fast-paced
exposé of the “other” Hollywood, featuring folks living outside their
comfort zone and the people who put them there. Henry Carter (Kevin
Spacey) is a psychiatrist with an A-list clientele, including a
once-famous actress (Saffron Burrows), an insecure young writer (Mark
Webber), and a comically obsessive-compulsive super-agent (Dallas
Roberts). Henry is not in a good place, however. He has been asked to
take his first pro bono case, a troubled teenage girl from a
neighborhood far from the Hollywood hills. Considering his present
state of mind, is he ready for the real-life troubles of a young woman
who loves the world of movies he has become so jaded by? At its core,
Shrink is a study of control and our endless need for it, even when it
grows increasingly impossible to obtain.
Opens exclusively at E Street Cinema Friday, July 31st.
