Last month “The Automatic Hate” was released to buy / rent on iTunes and Amazon. The Justin Lerner’s seriocomedy it still making its run on film festivals around the America – the last stop was on Boston festival, but now you can own it as well.
When Davis Green’s alluring young cousin Alexis appears on his doorstep one night, he discovers that his father has kept a side of his family secret for thirty years. Against his father’s wishes, Davis travels to rural, Upstate New York to meet his other cousins. Quickly developing a strong connection with them, he sets out with Alexis to reunite their broken family. But in getting to know each other, Davis and Alexis realize they are perhaps more like their own fathers than they thought. As the pair uncovers the incident that tore their family apart, the two cousins must resist the temptation to keep their fathers’ deep-rooted grudge going, rather than end it.
