Deadbeat glamour is the score for photographer Paul McLean, filmmaker Chad Pickard and stylist Jeanie Annan-Lewin’s laid back love story. Their film is inspired specifically by Gus van Sant’s 1989 film Drugstore Cowboy, starring Matt Dillon and Kelly Lynch, about a band of drug addicts as they run around the Pacific Northwest robbing pharmacies and hospitals on an endless quest to stay high. Honing in on a grunge aesthetic, the team’s film captures the erratic highs and lows of life on the road and the intoxication of first love.
