Directed by Brendan Walsh, “I’ll Be Right There” follows a single mother, Wanda (Falco), whose priority is to put her family first, regardless of how hectic that may be. Her eight-month pregnant daughter (Carter) wants a wedding, her mother (Berlin) thinks she’s dying, her wayward son (Tahan) is either going into rehab or the army, and she barely has time for herself, not that she would know what to do with it anyway. The film has recently wrapped production in New York.
Ross has a number of significant, award-winning credits in the feature film realm. He edited and co-produced the Oscar-nominated, Emmy Award-winning documentary Cartel Land, an unprecedented, on-the-ground exposé of Mexican vigilante groups and drug cartels. The Emmy-nominated documentary Escape Fire, TIFF Audience Award-winning Here Alone, the Sundance Grand Jury Prize-winning The Kindergarten Teacher, starring Maggie Gyllenhaal and his most recent film Centigrade.
