Small Town Saturday Night

Small Town Saturday Night Information

Small Town Saturday Night is a 2010 American ensemble drama film by writer-director Ryan Craig. The film stars Chris Pine, Shawn Christian, John Hawkes and Bre Blair. The film also features actors Muse Watson, Robert Pine, Brent Briscoe, Scott Michael Campbell, Adam Hendershott, Octavia Spencer, Kali Majors and Lin Shaye.


The subtle connections of a deputy sheriff, a Nashville-bound singer, an ex-con, and a single mother will intertwine in this tale of small town life. Tommy Carson (Shawn Christian) works around the clock to keep the peace in Prospect, but Donny (John Hawkes), who is on a downward spiral, makes this even more difficult for the deputy Sheriff. Rhett Ryan (Chris Pine) discovers that the desire to follow his dream conflicts with his desire to be with the woman he loves. While Samantha (Bre Blair) does love the singer-songwriter, she comes to realize that what's best for her daughter (Kali Majors) and their future may not be what's best for him. Les (Adam Hendershott) just wants to fit in with his big brother's friends, but his overbearing mother (Lin Shaye) desperately wants him to stand out.


Shot on location in the San Bernardino mountain villages of Crestline, Valley of Enchantment, Twin Peaks, Blue Jay, Lake Arrowhead and Running Springs, California, Craig wanted the setting to be a character unto itself. He also wanted the town to look and feel like Anywhere, USA. The film's opening sequence was shot in Oregon to pay homage to the director's hometown.


The film premiered at the American Film Market in November 2009. It was later shopped around at the European Film Market in February 2010, as well as a May 18, 2010 screening at the Cannes Film Market.

The film is set for a U.S. DVD release date of June 1, 2010 by Lionsgate.

At the 2010 Vits Awards, it received 4th Place in "Bottom 5 Movies". It was also nominated for "Worst Directing", "Worst Script" and "Worst Photography".
