Ensemble Drama with Fatima Ptacek, Melissa Leo, & Cristela Alonzo

Hits Theaters & VOD April 8, 2022

Coast, a coming-of-age drama about a chance encounter that turns into a journey of self-discovery, will release in theaters and on VOD April 8th. The film’s vibrant ensemble cast is anchored by Fatima Ptacek (longtime voice of Dora the Explorer); stand-up comedian Cristela Alonzo (Cars 3); and Academy Award® winner Melissa Leo (The Fighter).

Set in a Central Californian farming community, Coast revolves around 16-year-old Abby, who is desperate to escape the trappings of small-town life. When she falls for the lead singer of a touring rock band, Abby must decide whether to leave her family and friends behind in search of a better life. Mia Frampton (Bridesmaids), Mia Xitlali (Max), Ciara Bravo (Cherry) and former Portugal The Man member Kane Ritchotte round out the cast.

Directed by Jessica Hester and Derek Schweickart from a screenplay by Cindy Kitagawa, who was inspired by her own childhood experiences, Coast blends the explorative experience of self-discovery with the untarnished filter of youth. The film’s energetic live performances and original score feature music by Christian Zucconi and Hannah Hooper (Grouplove), Alex Walker, Kane Ritchotte (More), The Ceremonies, Black Match, and others. Coast is a Journey Home Film in association with Big Vision Empty Wallet and Gemini Team Go. For more information visit the film’s website.
