About "Looking for Palladin"

Arrogant Hollywood talent agent, Josh Ross (David Moscow), is sent to Guatemala to find Jack Palladin (Ben Gazzara). Although they'd never met, the search is emotionally complicated as the long-time retired star was once married to Josh's late mother. The young agent's contempt for the 'old'actor mirrors his comedic distaste for the local community, whose help he desperately needs to find him. What Josh hopes will be a quick and lucrative deal turns into a soul-searching journey.

"The film is absorbing and offbeat; a gem!"-Jeffrey Lyons, KNBC

" ...a breath of fresh air. It deserves to be seen by the masses. And, hopefully, it will. It centers on real people and their introspective on the importance and appreciation of relationships and family"-FilmThreat
