A thrilling drama about love, loss, and identity, RETAKE is the intense tale of Jonathan, a devastated middle-aged man who hires a young male hustler to accompany him on a road trip from San Francisco to the Grand Canyon. Eager to leave his own life behind, the prostitute soon comes to realize that he’s playing a crucial role in recreating Jonathan’s heartbroken road trip from his past. Tuc Watkins (“Desperate Housewives”) gives a marvelous star lead that is fully revealing yet remains dangerously mysterious.
