Have you ever loved someone so much it made you actually crazy? "SO CLOSE is a fascinating look into the complexities of abuse and survival from a truly character-based perspective. Marin Gazzaniga and John Conlee are great: powerful performances and very real."
--ROBERT MAY, Producer of
THE STATION AGENT
"Very well acted and moving - haunting."
--MARILYN AGRELO, Director of MAD HOT BALLROOM
Love hurts. Never more so than in SO CLOSE.
Filling out a bureaucratic form in a nondescript waiting room, Claire (Marin Gazzaniga) is jolted by a simple question - and the five strangers sitting nearby become the characters in her recollection of her turbulent marriage to Joey (Tony-nominee John Ellison Conlee). SO CLOSE, inspired by interviews, takes the viewer on a stream-of-consciousness journey into the highs and lows of passion gone wrong. It will leave you questioning your own relationships, and wondering how close you could ever come to "crossing the line that shouldn't be crossed."
Also starring: Julia Gibson (MICHAEL CLAYTON, THE EXONERATED), Perri Gaffney (AS THE WORLD TURNS, INTIMATE APPAREL), Daniel Stewart and Nina Murano. Music by Al Houghton. Edited by Johanna Witherby. Director of Photography Jon Hokanson. Produced by John Ellison Conlee. Written and Produced by Marin Gazzaniga. Directed by Michael Sexton & Rob Fruchtman.
