COMING SOON TO CINEMAS 2019
Sword of Trust

A coveted Civil War relic falls into the laps of Marc Maron, Jon Bass, Jillian Bell and Michaela Watkins this revisionist history comedy.

When Cynthia (Bell) and Mary (Watkins) collect Cynthia's inheritance from her deceased grandfather, the only item she's received is an antique sword believed to be proof that the South won the Civil War. When they try to unload it to a pawnshop (run by Maron and Bass), they discover that it's a highly sought after black market item and attempt to sell it to the highest bidder.

Everyone onscreen is so good at this kind of work that one wishes more tightly scripted comedy screenplays had such savory dialogue, or inspired character conceptions.

I wanted to discard every element of the plot and just hang out with the characters over coffee for an hour-something that speaks to both Shelton's gift with character/performances and how little I cared about what actually happens in this movie.

Even as the narrative fizzles, the movie remains an appealing assemblage of timely themes.

Its concerns are person-to-person rather than broadly political in the end, which is far from surprising in a Shelton film. On this modest scale, it finds reason for hope.
