The Discoverers – Exclusive Clip (HD)

Meet the Filmmaker with Justin Schwarz from “The Discoverers”

I saw a good movie last night called “The Discoverers” and my daughter Murphey got her picture with one of the actors that was in the movie.  Stuart is on the right side of the picture and actor Robert Walden is on the left side of the picture. I got to ask him a question about the Rockford Files and I wondered why he only appeared in a few episodes every year. He said he was getting deeply involved in directly by then he told James Garner he could only be in 5 episodes a year.

This is from the website about the movie:

The Discoverers Movie starring Griffin Dunne, Madeleine Martin, Cara Buono, Devon Graye, Dreama Walker, Becky Ann Baker, Scott Adsit Ann Down, John C. McGinley, David Rasche, Stuart Margolin


Washed-up history professor Lewis Birch (Oscar and Emmy nominated Griffin Dunne) takes his begrudging teenage kids – Zoe (Madeleine Martin, “Californication”) and Jack (Devon Graye, “American Horror Stories”) – on a road trip to a conference in hopes of putting his career back on track. But, when Lewis’s estranged father Stanley (Emmy Award-winning Stuart Margolin) goes AWOL on a Lewis and Clark historical reenactment trek, Lewis is forced to make a family detour. The Birch family find themselves on a journey of discovery and connection as they make their own passage west.

THE DISCOVERERS is a bittersweet comedy and moving debut feature from writer/director Justin Schwarz led by Dunne’s striking comeback performance. This engaging tale of family dysfunction and rediscovery also features a talented ensemble cast including David Rasche, (IN THE LOOP), Dreama Walker (COMPLIANCE), Ann Dowd (COMPLIANCE), Cara Buono (“Mad Men”), Becky Ann Baker (“Girls”), Scott Adsit (“30 Rock”), and John C. McGinley (“Scrubs”).

The Discoverers creative team includes Variety’s 2012 Cinematographer to Watch Chris Blauvelt (Meek’s Cutoff), production designer Kelly McGehee (The Deep End), editor Geraud Brisson (From The Sky Down), and Oscar-nominated sound designer Ron Bochar (Moneyball).
