The two make a fascinating cinematic pairing and their film slips easily into your memory to stay.



Two brothers attempt to drive a trunk full of stolen opioids from Florida to Alaska to cash in big in the Land of Gold. A split-second act of violence somewhere in the California desert derails their trip and sets them on a crash course with tragedy.

Scott Monahan's feature film directorial debut
Anchorage, written by Dakota Loesch, and starring them both, have won an impressive 11 awards at 17 film festivals across the world. Quick comparisons of Anchorage have been made to Easy Rider, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, True West, and Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot. This entirely self-funded independent feature film with no name talent and an unknown first-time director has completely bucked expectations and delivers in rare form the truly independent spirit of filmmaking.
