Village 8 Louisville Exclusives presents 'Pieces of Easter'
Print this page

The road trip movie is a time-honored tradition. And why not? All sorts of wacky shenanigans can happen when spending long hours in a car, traversing the country. I know from experience – I once took ten days and drove with a car-full of people from Louisville to San Francisco and back. We used an atlas as our guide and made it a rule to stop at any interesting-looking places along the way. In this way, we found the Cheese Store and a really creepy petting zoo where the grizzled proprietor angered a cage full of rattlesnakes for our amusement. We also got lost for two hours in the Rocky Mountains. Anything can happen on a road trip. Tempers run high. A hole appeared in the walls of a hotel room after one of our party got pissed off (for a pretty silly reason) and took a chair to it.

You know what else can happen? Everyone learns a little bit about life, love, friendship, and what it means to be yourself. Well, presumably. It didn't happen quite so treacly on our trip, but allow me to direct your attention to the film trailer following this article. The movie in question is Pieces of Easter

, starring Jefferson Moore (who also wrote and directed) and Christina Karis.

Karis stars as Alza, a young woman who is something of the black sheep in her family (the “prodigal daughter,” as she says), who is trying desperately to make it back home in time for Easter. Moore portrays Lincoln, a farmer who reluctantly agrees to give her a ride when her car breaks down. What follows is the aforementioned wacky shenanigans and valuable life lessons.

About Allan Day

There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
