We are all affected by the people we meet, the words we exchange and the decisions we make. And the impact from our encounters with those people, conversations and decisions can alter our lives for years, decades, even a lifetime – for good or for ill. Bottom line: our actions have consequences. But what if a seemingly insignificant event in your past was changed – slightly? What would the ripple effect be on your future life?

That is the central question explored by the new independent feature film, The Trouble With Rain. Shot on location in Tennessee, this fantasy drama taps into the universal, subconscious question, ‘what if?’ that plagues everyone from time to time.What if I had smiled at that guy instead of brushing him off? What if I had asked that girl for a date? What if I hadn’t missed my train? What if… you fill in the blank. A canny combination of wry, witty humor, real life drama and the surreal possibility of a ‘do-over’ gives The Trouble With Rain strong appeal to its target audience, the Millennial Generation, and also provides crossover appeal to general market fans of romance, sci-fi and off-beat drama.

The Trouble With Rain has been accepted into a growing number of international film festivals, including the Hong Kong World International Film Festival, the Toronto World International Film Festival, the New York International Film Festival, the Singapore World International Film Festival and the Los Angeles World International Film Festival. “While we are honored to have our film screened for audiences around the world, we don’t want strangers to be the first to see our film,” says screenwriter Nathan Owen. “We’d rather share it first with our friends. With that in mind, we’ve partnered with the Malco Cinema in Smyrna, Tennessee to host the World Premiere of The Trouble With Rain, and we would love it if you would join us!”

The World Premiere screening of The Trouble With Rain is scheduled for 7:00 pm, May 16, 2016, at the Malco Cinema, 100 Movie Row, Smyrna, TN 37167. There will be one showing only and seating is limited.

Tickets are only available for advance purchase through the movie’s website,

“After countless hours of blood, sweat and tears (although we’re not sure we’ve actually spilled any real blood…yet) we are finally ready to unveil our independent feature film, (drum roll, please)… THE TROUBLE WITH RAIN!” says director/producer Mike Parker. “We want to thank everyone who has joined us on this remarkable journey, and invite everyone to celebrate with us as we take the next step by showcasing the film at festivals across the country and around the world. Now the fun really begins!”
