Pushing Dead

Genre

Comedy feature film written and directed by Tom E. Brown

Synopsis

When a struggling writer, HIV positive for 20+ years, accidentally deposits a $100 birthday check, he is dropped from his health plan for earning too much. In this new era of sort-of universal care, can he take on a helpless bureaucracy but also come up with $3000 a month to buy meds on his own?

Tom Riley's role

Mike, a British painter and love interest.

This entertaining, surprisingly humorous feature debut from Tom E. Brown gets a boost from crafty screenwriting and a charismatic cast that includes Danny Glover, Robin Weigert, Khandi Alexander and Tom Riley. Mercury News
