Gold Coast International Film Festival Announces ‘The Benefactor’ In The Line-up

Dir. Andrew Renzi | USA | English | 92 min | Narrative | Long Island Premiere
Richard Gere shines as Franny, an eccentric philanthropist trying to reconnect with his deceased best friend’s’ daughter (Dakota Fanning) and her young husband (Theo James). Although impossibly charming, Franny’s motives and lifestyle bring about larger moral questions, in this surprising and engaging debut drama from writer-director Andrew Renzi.
Tues 11/10, 7:30pm, Soundview PW
