The story is centered on Gaston Monteau, a recently widowed librarian who struggles with profound depression and guilt. Click on the picture to find out more about this dark comedy thriller.

PR Release: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Putnam, Connecticut – January 29, 2012The Borderline production team is positively thrilled to announce the casting of Meredith Prunty in the role of Megan. Meredith, a SAG actress, comes to us with a wealth of experience and exceptional acting talent. The role of Megan is probably the most challenging in the film. It requires absolutely the right balance of frustration, love, and angst to make Gaston’s character arc believable. When we saw Meredith’s audition tape, we knew immediately we had a performer with the raw spark and exuberant passion to be our Megan.A Boston native, Meredith is a veteran of the stage and screen, having appeared in productions of “Grown-Ups”, “Shattered Silence”, “Milkweed” and most recently Donny’s Boy starring Adam Sandler. Meredith also co-produced, directed and starred in the popular web series “Chop Chicks.” She’s also well known for her activism and stance against bullying and child trafficking. She starred in and received global recognition for her poignant performance in Michael and Marisa’s anti-bully music video “The Same.”
I promised everyone I would write about what it is like to be on movie sets and so I would be remiss if I did not mention Adam Sandler films. I have been on two of his films – Grown-Ups and That’s My BoyBoy and it is like nothing I have ever been on before. First of all – they are very large budget films and so there are a lot of cast, crew, fancy machines and cameras. Also – there are a lot of extras. In Grown-Ups, I spent the day playing at Water Wiz with hundreds of other kids while the cameras rolled. In “That’s My Boy” I was in a large auditorium with close to 1,000 other kids. They had painted the entire auditorium of the school where the set was to represent a different school and era. Big budget films are fun to be on because of all the excitement and Mr.Sandler ALWAYS takes the time to say “hi” to the crowds. He is very personable and nice. A very quality man and a true star! Also – because these sets are so large – I was never able to spot myself in the actual Grown-ups movie and although That’ s My Boy has not come out yet, I can just about guarantee I won’t be in it as I was “deep background” which means there was a very large crowd and I was behind a lot of others. Also – I do not have pictures of the set as they are strickly forbidden. Some of my other movies – we were allowed to take pictures but if you tried here, you might find yourself not invited back.
I heard a rumor that Adam Sandler might come back to Boston and film some more blockbusters. I sure hope so and now that I am a member of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) I’ll keep my fingers crossed that I perhaps I will get a featured “extra” role or small speaking part. Any other actor who reads this knows that the likelihood of this is rare, but dream big and reach for the stars – who knows – it could happen, right?
Update Jan. 27th – just announced – Adam Sandler will be coming back to Boston to film Grown Ups II!!! Fingers crossed I make it my third Sandler film 🙂
