DESCRIPTION
This is the movie which tells the story of Joseph Hawthorne, a bi-polar man who loses his wife at sea, then spirals deep into a world of confusion. His subsequent exoneration creates a divided mystery among the town and moreover her bloodthirsty family.

We’re still waiting on an official release date. According to Imdb the picture will see release in 2015(?), but we’ve yet to hear any word on an official release date, and whether this one will head straight to VOD, digital download or possibly a torrent and home video or make its way to domestic theaters.

The film has also been nominated for a People's Choice Award and Best Picture Award at the festival. The winners will be announced at the HRIFF Awards Ceremony on February 13. Bernard took to Twitter to share his excitement over the news.

In film, there are blockbusters and then there are ‘indie films’; those that are produced with limited budgets but that are limitless in heart. And here’s a secret; Indie films are often the better movies; sometimes, the much, much better movies; ala: American Beauty, The Perks of Being A Wallflower, Juno, Donnie Darko, Reservoir Dogs, and the list goes on and on. They have one thing in common; a connecting thread; they were all once inconspicuous, independently made passion projects. And thank the cinema Gods for them and their creators. Some of these films haunt us, others inspire us and then there are those films that call to us, not merely to experience them, but to solve them; enter The Ghost & The Whale, their third feature length film, by brothers James and Anthony Gaudioso; aka: The Gaudioso Twins.
The Ghost and the Whale features a stellar ensemble, including the aforementioned Tippi Hedren (who, for the record also appeared in Hitchcock’s Marnie), the voice of Jonathan Pryce (Haunted Honeymoon, Stigmata), Monica Keena (Freddy vs Jason, Night of the Demons), Ashlynn Yennie (The Human Centipede, The Scribbler) and Maurice Benard (Restraining Order, Ruby).

The film unravels the story of Joseph Hawthorne, (Maurice Benard), a bi-polar man, who took his wife, Annabel on a romantic boat ride, only to return alone. No one knows how Annabelle truly met her end, least of all Joseph himself. Her disappearance, divides the small town of Bodega Bay. It is an emotional film that leaves you thinking hard about life, lost potential, and desiring to understand things, which we cannot, long after the credits roll.

The story picks up one year after Annabel’s disappearance. Journalist Ed Hale, (James Gaudioso) has been summoned to Bodega Bay, by Joseph, to hear his side of the story. However, by the time Hale arrives, Joseph has not been taking his prescribed medications and has relapsed into the bowels of the manic-depressive illness; alternating between severe mood shifts and energy levels, fear, paranoia, euphoria, mania, and his only friend is a Gray Whale, voiced by the incomparable, Jonathan Pryce.
