Meredith Johnston and Rene Cruz in “Pet Names”

Grad-school-dropout Leigh spends seemingly endless days caring for her ill mother in her childhood home. A chance encounter with her ex, Cam, leads Leigh to make a last-minute decision to invite him on her solo camping trip. Falling into old patterns of familiarity is easy for the duo; what’s hard is facing deep-seated wounds between them that never healed. Between losing Cam’s dog, tripping on mushrooms, drunken nights by the bonfire baring their souls, making up dumb songs, and jealous arguments, the “vacation” becomes a constant guessing game of whether or not the two will find themselves back together, or never speaking again.

PET NAMES boasts an extraordinary cast and crew, featuring writer and leading lady Meredith Johnston in a breakout role as the conflicted and acerbic Leigh. Deftly directed by Carol Brandt, in this, her fourth feature, we find a confidence and maturity far beyond her twenty-five years as she injects fresh blood into the independent romantic dramedy.

PET NAMES is directed by Carol Brandt and written by Meredith Johnston. The film is produced by Chris James Thompson and Suzanne Jurva. Lisa Dietlin, Toni Chappell, Susan Mikulay, and Susan Ballje are executive producers. Editing by Brandt and Chris James Thompson with cinematography by Dana Shihadah. Music is by Warm Human, Rene Cruz, and Will Van Boldrik.
