Road Trip: Silas Yelich and Peter Scanavino in Tom Gilroy’s "The Cold Lands."

15. The Cold Lands

Set in New York's Catskill Mountains, a boy (Silas Yelich) goes missing after his mother (Lili Taylor) dies. He meets Carter (Peter Scanavino), who takes him to a music festival where they sell jewelry and Carter doses on Ecstasy. But not much else happens in Tom Gilroy's minimalist indie.
