Glass Chin

World Narrative Competition

World Premiere

USA | 87 MINUTES | English |


Drama, Crime, Sports, New York, NY Director(s)
Bud 'The Saint' Gordon (Corey Stoll) once had it all—a nice apartment, fame, public love and admiration—but a quick jab to the chin wiped that slate. Now living in a dingy studio with no business, no fans and no purpose except to help train an up-and-coming boxer, Bud longs for his former Manhattan glory. With promises of restoring his shattered image and ego, he makes a deal with JJ (Billy Crudup), a crooked restaurateur. But as Bud further entangles himself in JJ's affairs, he finds himself framed for murder and faces a choice between his integrity and his aspirations. Capturing the moral dilemmas that emerge from the compromises we make for success, Noah Buschel writes and directs Glass Chin with a distinctive, vibrant style.
