Set in the heart of Cajun Louisiana, You're in Charge begins on the day Eddie Guidry gets out of prison. Brimming with New Age optimism, he reinvents himself as a “doctor” of alternative medicine, and sets out to redeem himself in the eyes of his family. Desperate times call for drastic measures in this comedy about mistakes, high stakes, and never giving up – even when maybe you should. Starring Mary Kay Place, Louis C. Norris, Caroline Helm. The film screens on Saturday, March 15 at 9:15 at Upstate Films in Woodstock. You're in Charge is also available for purchase/download via many fine digital outlets.
I spoke with writer/director Tom Krueger about Cajun culture, his film, and the new economics of the film industry.
