Ottawa native Marc Wilkinson’s latest feature film was recently released on Amazon Prime and other streaming services.
“Honeycrisp,” the second feature film of Wilkinson’s Chicago-based Suburban Skies Pictures, is a female-led independent film which won best screenplay at the 2018 Illinois International Film Festival.
The story follows estranged sisters Hannah and Greta Lawton, played by Heather Call and Megan St. John respectively, with a turbulent past who meet up to clean out their deceased parents’ summer cabin and repair or end their relationship.
Keenan Odenkirk, following in the comedic acting footsteps of his uncle Bob Odenkirk of “Better Call Saul,” also makes his feature film debut.
The film was shot on location in the deep woods of South Michigan and is said to be about modern women, magical places and the mysteries of growing up and apart.
Wilkinson previously directed the sixth season of the true crime documentary series “Case Files Chicago” for The CW 50 in Chicago.
The film is available to buy and rent on Amazon Prime, Vimeo On Demand and Roku.
Wilkinson’s previous film “Sunset Rock” is also available on Amazon Prime.
