SOPHIE
Thriller (13 mins.) World Premiere

Director/Writer: Alex Lombard
Producer: Jacob R. Burke
Cast: Jonathan Groff, Alex Lombard and Marcos De La Cruz

Synopsis: "Sophie" is a film about expectation, risk and reckoning. It follows a Ben (Jonathan Groff "Looking," "Frozen," "Glee"), on his journey from the straight and narrow path to the downward spiral of delusion. Upon meeting Sophie (Alex Lombard "Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter," "Inception," "Big Love") in a downtown park, their seemingly innocent relationship unfolds through a shared love of comic books. What emerges is a narrative that creeps to the edge of a cliff, and as the pieces of the puzzle fall into place, it drops the viewer over the edge. At once, the reckoning comes too late, but it does indeed come and at a very high price. This marks Alex Lombard's directorial debut.
