May 1st, 2017
Nathan, an alienated gay teen inherits his brother’s bike after his suicide. Nathan doesn’t want it, so he returns to his old neighbourhood to find the bike another home. In doing so he is forced to face his grief and the real reason he won’t ride.
Nathan Won't Ride will be the feature film debut from Dean Loxton following his many successful short films. In 2016 ‘Daniel’ screened at over 30 film festivals worldwide along with many award nominations. Also that year Dean attended the Berlinale talent campus and was mentored by Producer Iain Canning (Lion, The Kings Speech) through the BFI scheme supporting emerging filmmakers.
Produced by Elizabeth Boag and Dan Cleland, The Ride is currently in development.
