Sacred Heart Villa Provides Backdrop to Short Film

Sacred Heart Villa was chosen as the setting for a short film by Wyomissing’s own Justen Patrick Lander of Terrestrial Films, award winning director, writer, cinematographer, and editor.  The film, American Standard, features Bruce McClean as Edward Bracket, a nursing home resident nearing the end of his life. All he has left are his memories and a photo album. Edward passes the time each day waiting for his daughter to come and take him to the watch tower on the mountain that he can see outside his window. Then one day, Edward makes a decision to leave on his own.

American Standard, released in 2014, was selected for the 2015 Chicago International Arthouse New Hope festivals, the inaugural 2015 Reading Filmfest, and the 2016 Tiburon International Film Festival.
