"The Hunting Paty" is inspired by the true story of a disgraced war journalist (Richard Gere) who enlisted the help of his former cameraman (Terence Howard) and an eager, wet-behind-the-ears journalism major (Jeese Eisenberg) to track down an infamous war criminal still on the loose somewhere in the backwoods of Eastern Europe.
What begins as an impulsive reporting assignment quickly turns dangerous when hostile locals, shady underworld figures and several cases of mistaken identity put them at odds with their objective. As they bluff, con and blunder their way to a scoop, they slowly learn the truth surrounding the circumstances of his disappearance may be elusive as the war criminal himself.
Written and directed by Richard Shepard (THE MATADOR) the movie is based on the Esquire article "What I Did On My Summer Vacation" by Scott Anderson.
