This award-winning feature directorial debut, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, follows Caleb, a charming small-town entrepreneur determined to keep his woodworking shop afloat in spite of the relentless idealism of his business partner and father, Jim (Michael Hogan, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA), an aging hippie draft-dodger. When a wealthy American comes to town, Caleb sees a chance to turn his fortunes around provided he can keep Jim distracted long enough. Juggling mounting debts, freeloading hippie houseguests, and a budding love life, Caleb strikes a secret deal with Matthew that could set him up for good if it doesn't destroy his entire way of life.
A SIMPLE CURVE premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and “possesses wisdom that is rare for film these days, let alone a debut."(The Toronto Star)
