Lion's Den

Ethan Hawke’s latest film, the stunning Boyhood, hits theatres this weekend in the United States. Sadly most Canadians will have to wait until July 25th to see the film. Trust me, it will be worth the wait. To tide you over, today’s short features Hawke in one of his earliest roles. Co-directed by Bryan Singer (X-men: Days of Future Past, The Usual Suspects) and Joel Ottman, the film revolves around five friends who meet at their old stomping ground after finishing their first semester of college. Over the course of the evening, relationships become strained and secrets are revealed.
