In November 2010, Hinshaw was announced as a star in the independent thriller film Rites of Passage alongside Christian Slater.[11] In the film, an anthropology student takes his classmates to his family ranch, where his brother lives in a haze of drugs, guilt, and Chumash Indian rituals.[12] The film was released straight to DVD on 16 October 2012.[13][14]
