Indie Feature Film "Hitting the Cycle" Set for Closing Night of Tupelo Film Festival

Posted by Jennifer B. Miller

Hitting the Cycle, the independent film that I Co-Produced, has been chosen as the closing night feature at this year's Tupelo Film Festival.  HTC will screen on Saturday, May 19th at 6pm with a Q&A to follow.

Though the story centers around an anti-hero who chose pro baseball over college, our cast and crew represents the Ivy League well!  Princeton alum Richey Nash wrote the screenplay and portrays the lead character, Jimmy "Rip" Ripley.  Rip's father is played by a Penn grad, Academy Award nominated actor Bruce Dern.

Please check out our film's official website ( to learn more about the story and Team HTC.  We are currently working on theatrical distribution, and would greatly appreciate support from fellow alumni.
