“The Pistol” is a 10-minute comedy about two 80-year-old women who move from Queens to Vero Beach. It’ll premiere at prestigious Cannes Film Festival on May 11.
Xaque Gruber, a Vero Beach resident, wrote and directed the film.
“That was brewing in my head for a few years,” he said.
He used Vero Beach Theatre Guild actors in the film.
Isabel Garrett plays the lead character, Claire.
“She’s a phenomenal talent, living in Sebastian,” Xaque said. “She can hold her own against Judy Dench.”
