Sometimes the only way to maintain overall happiness in a relationship is to endear brief personal pain. That’s certainly the case for actor James Whittingham‘s protagonist in the new comedy, ‘The Sabbatical.’ In this new exclusive clip from the film, the performer’s main character, Professor James Pittman, is experiencing physical pain during a surgery his character’s wife wanted him to have.
The clip is helping support Freestyle Digital Media‘s distribution of ‘The Sabbatical’ on VOD tomorrow. The comedy is the latest feature from director Brian Stockton, who also served as a producer, and co-wrote the script with Whittingham. In addition to Whittingham, the film also stars Laura Abramsen, Bernadette Mullen, Mike Gill, Candace Fox, Trevor Aikman, Ken Wilson, Paul-Gui Crepeau and Kevin Allardyce.
Freestyle Digital Media has released the following synopsis for ‘The Sabbatical’:
When a university professor, James Pittman (Whittingham), is forced to produce a new photography book on his year off, he finds he’s no longer the hot-shot artist he once was. His workaholic wife, Jillian (Mullen), is nowhere to be found, and his best friend is busy leading a family life. Alone and desperate, he befriends a young artist, Lucy (Abramsen), who turns his world upside down. Mid-life crisis ensues.
