An odd couple of sorts, meditative and stern Alvin (Paul Rudd) and his girlfriend’s brother, Lance (Emile Hirsch), dopey and insecure, leave the city behind to spend the summer in solitude repainting traffic lines down the center of a country highway ravaged by wildfire. As they sink into their job in the remarkable landscape, they learn more than they want to about each other and their own limitations. An unlikely friendship develops through humor and nasty exchanges, leading to surprising affection.
Prince Avalanche premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival on 20 January. Then it had its international premiere in competition at the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival on 13 February 2013 where David Gordon Green won the Silver Bear for Best Director.
Production for Prince Avalanche was done secretly and was announced to the public only after its completion. This was done at the request of the director, David Gordon Green, who wanted to get back to his independent roots after his last three films were completed by a major film studio.
