Aubrey Plaza Stars in First Trailer for SXSW-Selected 'Ned Rifle'

February 5, 2015

Ned Rifle

While general audiences are probably pretty excited to see the first installment of the new Star Wars trilogy, there's an indie film trilogy that will be concluding this spring. Writer and director Hal Hartley has created a nice little indie cinematic universe with the films Henry Fool and Fay Grim, and now he's bringing the final installment of this series to South by Southwest next month with Ned Rifle. This time we find Fool's son Ned (Liam Aiken) embarking on the dark mission of killing his father (Thomas Jay Ryan) for ruining his mother's (Parker Posey) life. But those plans may be interrupted by Susan (Aubrey Plaza). Watch!

Here's the first trailer for Hal Hartley's Ned Rifle from SXSW:

Ned Rifle

At once a saga concerning the Grim family of Woodside Queens and how their lives are turned upside down by the arrival of the self-proclaimed genius, Henry Fool, this trilogy is also an illustration of America's grappling with ideas, art, politics, and religion over twenty years. In this swiftly paced and expansive conclusion, Henry and Fay's son, Ned (Liam Aiken), sets out to find and kill his father for destroying his mother's life (Parker Posey). But his aims are frustrated by the troublesome, sexy, and hilarious Susan (Aubrey Plaza). Hal Hartley (Henry Fool) writes and directs Ned Rifle, playing at SXSW in March. Well?
