Geoff Marslet's "Loves Her Gun" was a talking point out of last year's SXSW, not only because it centers around violence and gun control, but because the improvised dialogue makes for a naturalistic portrait of a woman's progression from victim to aggressor. She's well-played by Trieste Kelly Dunn, who broke out in SXSW 2010's "Cold Weather" and went on to star in Cinemax's "Banshee." The story starts off with a random act of violence in NYC before a road-trek to Austin, Texas, where the majority of the drama unfolds, complete with hipster band, mustache and river tubing with beer. Dunn talks about making "Loves Her Gun," the state of indie film, and the filmmakers she's hungry to work with. "Loves Her Gun" opens January 10, 2014. Sophia Savage: I saw you in "Cold Weather" back in 2011. How have things changed since that film premiered at SXSW, and how did you get connected »
