“A Southern Gothic melodrama blends autobiography and fiction in the style of this American realist’s paintings.
Now, after this long and distinguished career in the visual arts, Bartlett has tested his creative mettle in a new realm. His 35-years-in-the-making film debut of ‘Things Don’t Stay Fixed’ is the product of a long desire to see his paintings “move” he says.
Written by former Alliance Theatre artistic director Sandra Deer and starring Atlanta actors Brenda Bynum, Tara Ochs, Melissa Saint-Amand and Desi Evans, ‘Things Don’t Stay Fixed’ centers on a restless photographer Sam Grace (William Gregory Lee) who returns to his southern hometown. He hopes to stop his daughter Nina (Saint-Amand) from what he sees as a misguided marriage.”
