Louisville Film Society and The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts present
Better Start Running at Flyover Film Festival

An unexpected series of events turns everyday store clerk Harley [Alex Sharp] into a wanted man… and even more unexpectedly, he finds himself on the run with the girl of his dreams [Analeigh Tipton]. FBI Agent McFadden [Maria Bello] is determined to crush him and wants to teach her rookie partner [Karan Soni] how it’s done. But while the agents pursue their culprit, our hero has loftier pursuits.  He kidnaps his Vietnam vet grandfather [Jeremy Irons] to reunite him with the love of his life, picks up a try-hard beatnik hitchhiker [Edi Gathegi] with a secret of his own, and against all common sense follows a roadside attractions map with a mysterious history.  As the agents get closer and closer with every stop, this eclectic band of misfits becomes an unlikely family, because sometimes a running start… can be a better start.

Q&A with filmmakers to follow screening.

Filmed in Louisville using local cast and crew in 2016.

There will be an After Party, in SCENE at the Center, celebrating the Flyover films and filmmakers, as well as our local visual storytellers, to follow the Q&A of Better Start Running. We encourage all attendees to join us in celebrating the continued growth of our local film artistry and economy. After party is free and open to the general public. There will be a cash bar and affordable bar bites for purchase.
