Henry’s Future

You would never mistake Henry’s Future for a movie made anywhere but in Buffalo. Set in the period between New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day, this romantic drama wears our snowfalls on its sleeve, accessorized with plenty of local restaurants and sporting events. Jason Gelsomino (pictured) heads an (almost) entirely local cast as Henry, a 31-year-old bachelor who puts his unwavering faith in the words of a psychic who tells him that he is about to meet the woman of his dreams. His task is to look around him and decide who fills the clues provided by the crystal ball. A joint venture of Buffalo Nickel Productions and Challenge Films, Henry’s Future was written and directed by DonnaMarie Vaughan with cinematography and general production assistance by local movie maven (and occasional AV contributor) Emil J. Novak. The film will have its premiere screenings at the Market Arcade this weekend, (Jan. 30-31) with some screenings including a chance to meet some of the cast and crew.
