Safelight: A film with more than a few of my favorite things

Road trips. Film photography. The 70s. The California coastline. That’s enough to make me watch a movie, but it doesn’t hurt that our good friends Joel P West and Darla Hawn teamed up for music on the film either. Safelight (formerly Truck Stop) is a drama about a high school student’s quest to photograph every lighthouse in the state (despite his cerebral palsy) and the runaway girl who helps him make it happen. I wasn’t able to find a release date, but it should debut sometime this year.
