Sam Tucker (Oscar® nominee Michael O’Keefe, The Great Santini), a successful stay-at-home graphic novelist, has hit a mid-life and creative crisis. Six months late on the deadline of his latest novel, Sam has already created turmoil with his publisher after his last book was a disaster. When his therapist wife Mary (Catherine Dent, TV’s The Shield) starts to suspect Sam of having an affair with Sherrie, his provocative and willing next-door neighbor, she’s surprised to find out he’s actually spending all of his time with a man. Jeff, his gay fellow “housewife” neighbor, is a fan of Sam’s published works. As his friendship with Jeff grows and he begins to recapture his creative fire, Sam finds he may be losing the one thing he never doubted: his marriage. A touching and comedic drama about friendship and confidence, FINDING NEIGHBORS is writer/director Ron Judkins’s first feature since his acclaimed The Hi-Line from 1999. In the meantime he’s remained quite busy in his parallel career as a sound mixer, winning a pair of Oscars for Saving Private Ryan and Jurassic Park.
