12pm Matt Price about whom has been said, “…doesn’t have the patience to write a screenplay, but give him 3:55 and both your eras and Matt will weave a tale as deeply textured as a classic novel or as intricate as a film noir masterpiece. You’ll walk away with images that will stick for a lifetime. And a nearly-full tub of popcorn…”
