Film Fridays: ‘Man of the House’

film fridays

The man of the house isn’t who you’d expect it to be in this student film, directed by recent Full Sail Film grads Zachary Gabriel and Joshua Butt. The film, which premiered at the May 2011 GradFest, tells the story of an imaginative young girl named Taylor who spends her days taking care of her alcoholic mother, avoiding her abusive stepfather, and watching over her younger brother, Dylan. Mixed in between real life are the girl’s daydreams, which involve her being an adult sheriff in an old-time Western. The directors’ centralized theme for this film was, “Sometimes heroes can come from the most unlikely of places.” Check it out below.
