JUMPING OFF BRIDGES IN MANHATTAN AND L.A.
Kat Candler’s powerful fiction feature Jumping Off Bridges plays this weekend in New York at the Pioneer Theater and next weekend in L.A. at the Fine Arts. The film is a well-acted drama that looks at the effects of suicide on a group of Texas teens, and Candler handles her difficult material with skill and conviction.

And here’s what Ain’t it Cool News had to say about the movie:
“Candler is very much in touch with a particular sort of teenaged sensibility. She knows the difference between sadness and the petulance it is often mistaken for, and she treats her sullen girls and boys with the sort of patience and understanding their parents (and, perhaps, some audience members) can never quite muster.”
