Dex plays Frank, the guitarist in Keith Carradine’s band, and he is joined in that combo by Dave Matthews. In the film, Rebecca Romijn plays a small-town cop romantically involved with Troy Garity's character, who reunites with his estranged mother (Sissy Spacek) when deadly circumstances threaten their home. Directed by Perry Moore, known for his work on The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the With and the Wardrobe, the film debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival in April, 2008. When asked about his experience, Dex explained, “It was very different being in a movie, then playing music, but the waiting around to perform was the same."
