Set to make its debut at next week’s Nashville Film Festival, “BLOODWORTH” is the tale of E.F. Bloodworth, played by Kris Kristofferson, who returns home 40 years after abandoning his wife (Frances Conroy) and three sons: Warren (Val Kilmer), Boyd (Dwight Yoakam) and Brady (W. Earl Brown). Bloodworth finds comfort from his demons by building a relationship with the grandson he never knew, Fleming (Reece Daniel Thompson). However, when Fleming meets the perfect girl, Raven (Hilary Duff), Bloodworth’s presence could cause Fleming to follow in Granddad’s misguided footsteps.
The film is directed by Shane Dax Taylor and based on Provinces of Night, a novel by William Gay. An early version of the film premiered at Santa Barbara International Film Festival last year, and the latest trailer includes music from T Bone Burnett (“Crazy Heart,” “Walk the Line”) and the original song, “You Don't Tell Me What to Do,” by Kris Kristofferson.
