"Only reason you're here is ’cause I spared you." FS.net is honored to exclusively premiere the first official trailer for an indie thriller titled Downeast, the latest feature from actor / filmmaker Joe Raffa. The film is premiering at the 2021 Garden State Film Festival later this month, and this trailer is being released early to build up some buzz. Written and directed by Raffa, Downeast is a story of love, loss, and redemption diving into the often ignored seedy underbelly of Maine. The story follows a woman who returns to her hometown and begins to uncover the web of lies the town has been keeping while reconnecting with an old flame. The film combines crime, revenge and most importantly, the hope for a new life. Starring Greg Finley, Dylan Silver, Judson Mills, Kirk Fox, and Gareth Williams. This looks like a gritty, rough and tumble mob thriller exploring the not-so-nice side of Maine - not something we see too often. View the first trailer below.
