William H. Macy makes directing debut

PARK CITY, Utah – The aftermath of an American school shooting is at the heart of William H. Macy’s directorial debut.

“Rudderless,” which Macy helped write, tells the story of a father who discovers and performs his son’s original songs after the college student dies in a campus shooting. Billy Crudup, Anton Yelchin and Macy’s wife, Felicity Huffman, star in the drama that screened as the festival’s closing-night film.
