  • Self-absorbed New Age composer Lucien (Andrew Borba) feels overshadowed by the talent and fame of his "improv" violinist wife Gypsy (Annunziata Gianzero), so she abandons her music to placate him, and together they retreat to their beach front home. Gypsy just "needs to fly again, needs to dream," like she did when her grandfather played for her as a little girl. Meanwhile Lucien's serial killer brother Jimmy (Thomas Jay Ryan) comes to visit after a long absence. The three walk on the beach, drink, and talk about their pasts. Gypsy listens to wind chimes and confides in a mysterious beachcomber; Lucien grows frustrated composing his next album, and Jimmy drowns the local women. Meanwhile a retired Boston detective is on Jimmy's trail, and eventually explosive confrontations erupt on both artistic and psychological levels.

    DISCHORD is a unique, low-budget indie from writer-producer-director-editor Mark Wilkinson. It seems to take place in an alternative New Age universe where even cops and Cape Cod fisherman talk about appeasing the spirits and New Age music is more popular than rock and rap combined. Naturally there's an intriguing score, and Hal Hartley fans will relish seeing HENRY FOOL star Ryan in another meaty role.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...Wilkinson is very good at capturing the seesawing tensions and emotions among these three individuals....Wilkinson's atmospheric use of music and striking Cape Cod locales are a plus....He shows promise as a deep-digging and personal filmmaker..."
