Native gets flattened (ha ha)

What Kind of Guy Thinks Getting Flattened by a Milk Truck is Funny? Meet “Expiration Date’s” Rick StevensonExpiration Date is about a young man cursed to die by being hit by a milk truck on his 25th birthday. And it’s funnier than hell.

The black comedy by Seattle filmmaker Rick Stevenson stars Robert Guthrie as the hapless victim-to-be, Charlie Silvercloud. The introduction of a Native lead character is seamless to the romance and sweet relationship between mother and son. And I’m not the only one to think so; in November, Expiration Date won both Best Picture and Best Actor honors (for Guthrie) at the annual American Indian Film Festival in San Francisco.
