The 35th Annual Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival (FLIFF) kicks-off with the premiere of a film that brings back the funny to 2020 – – director George Gallo’s The Comeback Trail. Delivering the laugh-a-minute lines is an all-star cast including: Academy Award winning actors Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Tommy Lee Jones, Golden Globe nominated actor Zach Braff (Scrubs) with co-stars Emile Hirsch, Eddie Griffin, and South Florida actress Kate Katzman, who will attend the premiere, where she will receive FLIFF’s “Star on the Horizon” Award.
The Comeback Trail takes us back to 1974 Hollywood, where two down-on-their-luck movie producers (DeNiro and Braff) find themselves indebted to a crime boss (Freeman). In need of some fast cash, they set-up an aging movie star (Jones) for an insurance scam to try and save themselves. However, they wind up getting more than they bargained for.
Director George Gallo is known for Midnight Run and the Bad Boys films.
