Written by Lee Blessing
Directed by Ellen McQueen
In Great Falls, Lee Blessing contrasts the great American West — with all of its promises of adventure, wonder and epic exploration — and the less-heroic journey of a writer and his alienated stepdaughter and their battle to overcome their own unwise and only half-intentional betrayals of self and of those they love. These characters discover a modest but piercing wonder in imperfect reconciliation.
