It’s fun, clever, witty and well-acted. – Ramas Screen

“All in all a telling slice-of-life, well worth-watching”- Cult Movies

“The movies pacing is excellent, it moves from scene to scene seamlessly” – Crave Online

A relationship roller coaster ride with funny highs and dramatic lows.” – Movie Vine

Written and directed by Alex Ranarivelo, produced by Paul J. Alessi, and co-produced by Amie Barsky and Baptiste DeRivel. Knuckle Draggers takes a humorous but very real look at the state of modern male/female relationships. Knuckle Draggers is the relationship movie from a male perspective.

The story follows Ethan, an all around nice guy who gets dumped because he wasn’t able to provide his fiancée with the plush, stable life her friends were living. Desperate to get her back, he seeks help from his older brother Kyle, a tough talking sexist who seems to have a way with the ladies. Kyle gives Ethan a crash course on women and dating much to the disgust of some of Ethan’s female friends. Just when it seems Kyle’s misogynistic theories are about to prove themselves true, things take an unexpected turn and force Ethan, Kyle and their friends to reassess their views on relationships.

In the spirit of movies like Swingers and Brothers McMullen, Knuckle Draggers gives us a unique point of view, a timely message, and a lot of heart. Not another indie film about friends hanging out, Knuckle Draggers provokes questions about what modern couples want versus what they need, and how their needs may not have evolved much from those of our caveman ancestors.

Scottish heartthrob Ross McCall heads a dynamic ensemble cast in the lead role of ‘Ethan’. His extensive credits include the HBO miniseries ‘Band of Brothers’ and most recently ‘Crash’, the Starz TV series. Omar Gooding plays Ethan’s best friend ‘Russell’. Omar’s list of credits includes ‘Baby Boy’, the HBO series ‘Deadwood’ and he’s just joined the cast of the upcoming Jerry Bruckheimer TV series ‘Miami Trauma’. The film also stars Danielle Nicolet (‘The Starter Wife’), Justin Baldoni (‘Heroes’), and Jennifer Alden (‘Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen’).

Knuckle Draggers features a musical score by Austin Wintory, whose credits include the multiple award-winning Captain Abu Raed. A dynamic soundtrack accompanies the score, including tracks by J Mello & Dave Navarro, Tyler Hilton, Marching Band, and Jennifer Love-Hewitt & Sophie B. Hawkins.

The East Coast Premiere takes place on Thursday, May 21st at 9pm, at Movies of Delray 300 7421 West Atlantic Avenue, Delray Beach, FL. For more info, go to or email Michael Posner, Festival Organizer:
