«The Godfather Buck» by Thomas J. Churchill

Director and Producer Thomas J. Churchill returns with an urgent new work; a profound and moving exploration of brotherhood, family, and the complexity of human relationships. Introducing an unmissable journey into the heart of brotherhood and family: The Godfather Buck, a cinematic experience that digs slowly but relentlessly into the hidden depths of family ties and challenges our conceptions of the relationship between brothers.

Set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Big Bear woods, the story gives us a vantage point in the cabin where two brothers meet each year for a hunting trip. In the comfortable cabin, their situation gradually unravels as they reconnect and face their lives, a surprise visit from their half-brother reveals long-buried secrets and lies, forever altering the course of their lives. 

The construction of a powerful narrative that delves into the complexities of men’s attitudes toward women, sex, relationships and each other comes courtesy of outstanding performances by Frederick Keeve (The Accompanist, Designated Caretaker Redux) and Kyle Lowder (Days of Our Lives; Bold and the Beautiful; The Ravine).

If you loved classics such as “Deliverance,” “A River Runs Through It” and “The Deer Hunter,” you can’t miss this film, which is inspired by timeless masters and, with a fresh voice, masterfully addresses the theme of masculinity, inviting the audience on a journey of healing and self-discovery. The director’s statement captures the essence of this touching story, saying that viewers will undoubtedly find themselves relating to the characters and gaining a new perspective from the experience.

We don’t know whether you will fully reflect yourselves in the protagonists, but we assume that The Godfather Buck will leave you pondering the complexity of human bonds long after the credits roll, witnessing the transformative power of discovering family secrets and healing the wounds of the past through an essential addition to the canon of powerful films that address the human condition.
