Kris is a stubborn 14-year-old living in rural Texas with a grandmother who doesn’t know how to handle her, and a mother who is in jail. After a rebellious attempt to befriend people her own age, Kris ends up having to work for her middle-aged cowboy neighbor Abe. In their struggle to keep their lives on the right track, a quiet friendship develops between the two. Director Annie Silverstein’s debut feature is a masterful depiction of a socially disenfranchised Texas and a coming-of-age story reminiscent of FISH TANK and THE FLORIDA PROJECT.
Annie Silverstein (USA) BULL is Silverstein’s first feature film.
