Film still: Camera Store


Chicago Premiere

It is Christmas Eve morning in 1994. Ray LaPine (John Larroquette) and his loquacious salesman Pinky Steuben (John Rhys-Davies) are trying to make it through the biggest shopping day of the year, again. Two decades ago, their camera store was a thriving neighborhood business, but now Bibideaux Photographic has faded into a tragic relic of a bygone era. The two men now find themselves trapped while merely keeping the store alive for their wealthy, amoral, and absent boss, Mr. Bibideaux. However, there is something different about today and with the arrival of an old friend, Ray gets word of a big change coming to the business he thought he knew so well. Ray must act immediately to save himself from the sinking ship before he loses the chance he has for a better life.

Directed by Scott Marshall Smith, 2016, U.S.A., 99 mins.
