SLC Fanboys Andy & Tysen are in Park City at the Slamdance Film Festival, joined this time by the writer, director and stars of the new independent film KATE CAN'T SWIM, who all just happen to be two people: Josh Helman and Jennifer Allcott.
You can sense the chemistry between the two as you listen to them talk about the new movie, Josh's directorial debut, all the different "hats" (besides writer & actor) that Jennifer wore during production, and even the goofy TV show that makes Helman geek out.
The movie is the story of KATE (Celeste Arias), who is almost thirty, almost engaged, almost settled in her career as a writer--but is deeply dissatisfied. When Kate's best friend EM (Allcott) returns from Paris with a surprising new lover in tow NICK (Helman), Kate and her boyfriend PETE (Grayson DeJesus) spend a weekend in upstate New York with the new couple. As Kate struggles with her suspicions about Em's new lover, dormant feelings about her own life arise, forcing her to decide whether to stay on her current life path or to burn it down and forge a new one.
Helman has appeared in TV series such as WAYWARD PINES and THE PACIFIC, as well as films JACK REACHER, and MAD MAX: FURY ROAD. He is also well-known for playing Col. William Stryker in "X-MEN DAYS OF FUTURE PAST" and "X-MEN APOCALYPSE".
