What is Fruitcake?


Fruitcake is the story of Adam, an eccentric, lonely, mid 30s man, and his unorthodox search for relationships. Part of reason the film is called Fruitcake is that it is a word anyone on the outside of Adam’s life could easily use to label him, just because he may seem different to them—odd, withdrawn, etc. This reflects the convenient, lazy way people often choose to define one another. We chastise, label, and slander people without understanding or having a connection with them, or we stereotype people from afar. Adam is a guy who has to overcome all of that while trying to pursue relationships for himself.

Under The Words: Face It

I thought it would be interesting for my middle son, Zac, to read for the part of Young Adam. It was a key flashback scene and the young actor would not only have to be able to carry that scene well, he would also have to have a similar likeness to the adult lead version […]

Under The Words: The Wanderer

When I started writing Fruitcake 5 years ago, I was just as eager to eventually share my observations of the story process as I was to tell the story itself. Along the way this year, as the story went from pre-production to post, I started making notes of my thoughts. I’ll share them from time […]
