Home / Now Showing / GERRY
The first film in Gus Van Sant’s acclaimed “Death Trilogy,” GERRY is a suspenseful and highly provocative story of two men pushed to the limit. A pair of best friends (Matt Damon and Casey Affleck), who’ve nicknamed each other “Gerry,” set out on a desert hike. But what begins as a simple daytime adventure turns into an intense life-and-death journey that will test the boundaries of human endurance … and ultimately, their bond. Written by Damon, Affleck, and Van Sant, this brutal journey is a starkly realized triumph of visionary filmmaking.
