beyond words!
A bookworm meets the librarian from HELL! Only to discover a life 'beyond words!' A romantic comedy without the romance! ('Don Quixote' rewritten!)

Tim Nistler
as Alvin Preston (Lead Male)
Emily York
as June Bassetti (Lead Female)
Jeanne Payne
as Beverly Preston
Alex Payne
as Alvin Preston (Young)
Joe Hursley
as Carl, the Library Guard

Down and out of luck in Central Texas, Alvin, a down-and-out bookworm, and June, a librarian/hooker who likely suffers from a mild form of Tourrette's, unexpectedly meet up and go on a whimsical adventure to Graceland to see the King of Rock and Roll. What they don't understand is that their lives are much more intertwined than they realize as they pursue sightings of Elvis Presley in Middle America. Mildly based and overly-inspired by 'Don Quixote' by Miguel de Cervantes.


From jimbruno.com:

"beyond words!" is an independent ultra-low-budget film shot on minidv in austin, texas in 1999 and edited on a G3 desktop in 2000 and 2001. not including the cost of the hand-held camera, the computer, or the software, the film was created for less than $3,000.00. with the exception of the lead actors who accepted a small stippend, the cast and crew volunteered their time and effort. the film premiered in austin, tx in 2001 and was broadcast on austin music network in spring 2002 as part of an independent broadcast film festival. created with the small screen in mind, "beyond words!" looks to connect with a new online audience interested in the role that language and words play on two individuals who are at first trapped by, and then ultimately freed through, language and words.
