Beside Still Waters

No matter what he does, Chris Lowell will probably always be best remembered for playing the good-hearted Piz on the Veronica Mars TV series – and reprising the role in the Veronica Mars movie. Which would be simultaneously cool (it’s a great series and terrific movie) and a shame – his first film as a director, Beside Still Waters, won both the Jury and Audience Prizes at the 2013 Austin Film Festival.

Beside Still Waters stars Ryan Eggold (The Blacklist), Reid Scott (Veep), Beck Bennett (SNL), Brett Dalton (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Will Brill (Not Fade Away), Erin Darke (Kill Your Darlings), Jessy Hodges (Hindsight) and Britt Lower (Unforgettable). It opens in theaters on November 14th and premieres on VOD on November 18th. Check out the trailer after the jump.
