Congrats to Fort Worth writer-director Tom Huckabee for winning ”Best Narrative Feature” at this weekend’s seventh annual Oxford Film Festival in Mississippi for his dark comedy ”Carried Away.” (“The Scenesters,” co-starring the Keller, TX-raised actor-writer Kevin Brennan, took runner-up in that competition).
“Carried Away,” shot in Tarrant County and the California desert, follows a young director (Gabriel Horn) who returns home from California to rescue his stroke-patient grandmother (Juli Erickson) from her nursing home “prison” and the clutches of his dysfunctional Texas family. The film’s score was provided by local twisted Americana faves The Theater Fire.

Thanks, Jimmy, for the shout out. Viva Le Fort Worth Weekly!
