Back Pocket Films podcast discusses the films you may not know exists but would be happy to watch on your next movie night. Devon reaches into his back pocket to pull out a relatively unknown and incredible film experience by writer/director Lodge Kerrigan with a jaw-dropping performance by Damian Lewis. Join David and Devon as they discuss this unbelievable film on Spotify here.
Keane with Damian Lewis will be released for viewing at ‘Film at Lincoln Center’ in New York beginning August 19, 2022. As we reported earlier, Lodge Kerrigan’s 2004 movie would be getting a 4K restoration with a U.S. theatrical release, as it received a limited theatrical release in New York back in 2005. The movie was previously a New York Film Festival 42 selection. Damian will attend an in-person Q&A on Saturday, August 20, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. and the event will be moderated by Christopher Abbott.

Grasshopper Film snapped up distribution rights to the critically acclaimed pic, which is executive produced by Steven Soderbergh and produced by Andrew Fierberg. Keane — in 4K — will premiere in cinemas in 2022, followed by releases on VOD, TV and home video.

UPDATE 08/13/22 – Damian will attend an in-person Q&A on Saturday, August 20, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. at Film Lincoln Center in New York and the event will be moderated by Christopher Abbott. For ticket information visit their website here.
“The Girlfriend Experience” director Lodge Kerrigan’s 2004 movie “Keane,” starring Damian Lewis and Abigail Breslin, is getting a 4K restoration and a U.S. theatrical release.
Grasshopper Film snapped up distribution rights to the critically acclaimed pic, which is executive produced by Steven Soderbergh and produced by Andrew Fierberg. “Keane” — in 4K — will premiere in cinemas in early 2022, followed by releases on VOD, TV and home video. (The movie received a limited theatrical release in New York back in 2005.)
“Keane” turns on William Keane (Lewis) who is struggling to cope six months after his six-year-old daughter was abducted from New York City’s Port Authority Bus Terminal while traveling with him. Repeatedly drawn to the site of the abduction, Keane wanders the bus station, compulsively replaying the events of that fateful day as if hoping to change the outcome. When one day he meets a financially strapped woman, Lynn Bedik (Amy Ryan), and her seven-year-old daughter, Kira (Abigail Breslin), at a transient hotel, Keane becomes increasingly attached to Kira and uses her to fill the void left by his own daughter’s disappearance.
“Masterfully written and directed, with incredibly committed performances from Damian Lewis, Amy Ryan and Abigail Breslin, Lodge Kerrigan’s third feature feels as urgent and vital today as it’s ever been,” said Grasshopper Film CEO Ryan Krivoshey. “We are thrilled to be working with Lodge on the re-release of ‘Keane’ and can’t wait for audiences to see this beautiful new restoration in theaters.”
