Story


Directed by Academy Award nominee Steph Green and featuring Saturday Night Live star Will Forte, this life-affirming film embraces the healing power of love and family in all of its idiosyncratic forms. After a stroke leaves her husband mentally disabled and fundamentally changed, spirited Irish housewife Vanetia struggles to keep her family together in the wake of tragedy. A research grant from American doctor Ted Fielding (Forte), interested in documenting the family's recovery process, allows them to get by. Though Vanetia initially resents living under Ted's microscope, she soon finds comfort in his calming presence, while Ted responds to Vanetia's dynamic, unpredictable personality. As the two explore their bond within their unique situation, a new family begins to emerge. "Run & Jump" is an unexpected, unconventional romance, intimate family portrait and emotional journey of recovery that ultimately uplifts through its heartfelt message of human connection and the power of acceptance.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..with remarkable warmth and immediacy, Green and co-scripter Keogan have managed to capture the beauty of an obviously flawed family..”
by Ronnie Scheib [Variety]
“..feels not a bit like a credibility-earning vanity project..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
“.."Run & Jump" won't startle you. It won't bowl you over with laughter or make you tense enough to grip your seat. What it will do is waft pleasantly over you leaving you oddly satisfied..”
by David Kempler [Big Picture Big Sound]
