On the bustling side streets of San Francisco, a reserved and complex middle-aged man hires a prostitute for the night and brings him back to his hotel. Instead of a quick one-night stand, the man instructs the young sex worker to assume the role of a character, and they enter a unique role-playing dynamic. The liaison doesn’t end after this one faithful night, and the two take a road trip across the desert to the Grand Canyon, with the young man being paid to remain in character during the entire time. Nostalgia, regret and romance all blend harmoniously together in Retake, directed by Nick Corporon. The film features the dashing Tuc Watkins (Castle, Ballers) as the lead, while Devon Graye portrays the mysterious yet affectionate escort pulled into this bizarre adventure. Lines get blurred and drama ensues, as this story plays out in the stunning backdrop of the Wild West, whilst also stringing at our delicate heartstrings. – Dave Easey
