Indie film 5 Hour Friends, starring Tom Sizemore and Kimberlin Brown, has been picked up for distribution in a few foreign countries, received a VOD offer, and been shown at eight film festivals where it won three awards. But a theatrical release has been more than elusive.
From 905 Productions, Ron Jackson wrote the screenplay for 5 Hour Friends and co-produced the film with his brother, Wayne Jackson. The movie is about Timothy Bonner, a middle-aged golfer and lifelong womanizer, played by Tom Sizemore, best known for his role in films such as Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down, Pearl Harbor and Natural Born Killers. Kimberlin Brown, who played Sheila Carter on both THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS and THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL, plays his love interest.
“The wonderful thing about playing Carla Bianchi is that there is no wrong,” Brown told Fine magazine. “When you’re playing someone who’s got issues, you can go farther with the part than you can when playing a ‘normal person.’”
In the film, Bonner is a man devoted to golf, sex and drinking. Not only has he missed payments to his angry ex-wife, but he also owes tuition money to his son, who will be forced to drop out of college if he doesn’t pay. Furthermore, unless he is capable of securing a $500,000 loan, his ad agency is in danger of collapse.
