Beneath The Surface Everyone Has A Secret.
With wonderfully authentic performances from a talented cast including Rory Culkin (Signs, You Can Count On Me) and Trevor Morgan, first-time director Jacob Aaron Estes brings you a story of friendship, tolerance and forgiveness that Roger Ebert calls "extraordinary" and Entertainment Weekly says is "...a terrifically harrowing tale!"
Sam (Culkin) can't seem to forget the day as he was beaten at school by the class bully, George. His teenage brother Rocky (Morgan) won't let him forget, either. Together with his best friends, Rocky plans a little harmless revenge and a lesson in humility. But, when the plan turns suddenly tragic, the true lesson of consequence is one they must all learn themselves. Kenneth Turan of the L.A. Times says Mean Creek is "...a revelation... with echoes of Deliverance and ...River's Edge."
