World Premiere of Kevin McMahon’s MILITARY HUSBAND to screen at PLFF!

We are extremely pleased to announce the World Premiere of Kevin McMahon’s MILITARY HUSBAND at this year’s PLFF! Here’s a bit about the film:

Matt Whittaker can barely get out of bed, he’s addicted to coffee and watching the cable news coverage of the Iraq war. The year is 2005 and Matt’s wife Celia, who was an ROTC student in college, was reactivated for service after three years in civilian life and sent to Iraq. Now he can barely cope with the emasculating experience of having his wife in a war zone and no way to protect her. Seeing his plight, Karen, his next door neighbor and ‘Military Wife’ invites Matt to the support group where the other wives stage an intervention to help him cope for Celia’s sake. After learning the tools to help him get through the day, tragedy strikes in Iraq and Matt is unsure if his wife will ever come home.

MILITARY HUSBAND is a project that has been 13 years in the making and is written and directed by Nebraska native Kevin McMahon, who will also be in attendance to discuss the creation of this film which has been finished as a tribute to Holly Lewis, the lead actress of the film, and Andre Botta, a crew member, who tragically passed away before the completion of the film. Be sure you are one of the first to see Kevin McMahon’s powerful story about the costs of war on relationships.
