Ben Foster and Lubna Azabal discover adventure--and each other--in Here.

The 2011 independent film Here is an adventure drama-romance directed and co-written by Braden King.

Set against the landscape of Armenia, Here chronicles a brief but intense relationship between an American satellite-mapping engineer (Ben Foster, The Messenger) and an expatriate photographer (Lubna Azabal, Incendies) who impulsively decide to travel into uncharted territory. A relationship of sorts develops and while the two of them enjoy the company of one another, life steps in to take them in opposite directions. The man and woman find themselves at a crossroads and must decide where to go from “Here.”

Here had its theatrical premiere in a New York theater in April, 2011 following a rollout to film festivals in Stockholm, Palo Alto and Milano, among others. It also popped up at Sundance.

Critics were mixed but generally positive about the movie, which also features an appearance by Peter Coyote ($5 a Day), but were unanimous in their praise of the gorgeous Armenian landscapes!
