A blog entry from the Washington Filmworks Blog last September has more info:

Washington Filmworks’ production incentive project One Square Mile, starring Kelly Blatz (Prom Night), Academy-Award® nominee Richard Jenkins (The Visitor, Burn After Reading) and Academy-Award® winner Kim Basinger (L.A. Confidential, 8 Mile) just wrapped principal photography in Seattle this past week.  The feature film was written by Josh Campbell and Jeff Van Wie and directed by award-winner Charles-Olivier Michaud (Snow and Ashes, 2010 Slamdance Film Festival Grand Prize).  The film shot for 25 days at locations throughout Seattle such as Fishermen’s Terminal, the Ballard Locks, Rainier Beach and Garfield High School.


Synopsis – On the threshold of young adulthood, Drew (Kelly Blatz) is torn between the dreams of his youth and the all-too-real existence of his marginalized family life.  Across the street, his older neighbor, Coleman (Richard Jenkins), is a broken man haunted by the past and struggling to finish his life with any kind of meaning he can muster.  The promise of Drew’s athletic abilities captivate Coleman, reigniting a drive for excellence long lost to the old man.
