Indie Trailer Sunday: Coming of Age Film 'Norman' Starring Dan Byrd
We're getting into the fall season, which means indies aplenty are finally getting released. Here's another one from Spokane, Washington and the festival circuit last year, titled Norman, about a high school boy named Norman Long, played by Dan Byrd (seen in The Hills Have Eyes, Lonely Hearts, Easy A, "Cougar Town"), with a bleak outlook on life who is pretending to have cancer. This trailer sells it in a different way though, involving a story with his dad, played by Richard Jenkins. The cast includes Emily VanCamp, Adam Goldberg, Billy Lush and Camille Mana. This looks quite good, thought it was worth featuring today.

A troubled high-school kid named Norman pretending to have cancer deals with problems involving his new girlfriend and terminally ill father. He must confront a set of conflicting emotions as he struggles to define his relationship with his father, his love for Emily, and ultimately who he will be as a young man.
Norman was directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Jonathan Segal, a University of Pennsylvania graduate of the feature The Last Run and the short Ripple previously. The screenplay is by newcomer Talton Wingate. This premiered at the Waterfront Film Festival in Michigan last year. Norman is being released by AMC Independent in limited theaters starting October 21st. For more info, visit the official website or Facebook.
