There’s a difference between being lonely and being alone, and Paul Rudd knows this well. As he explains to Emile Hirsch in a clip from their indie film Prince Avalanche, there are plenty of things to do when you’re alone in the wilderness. You can write letters, read, paint, sew, take care of your cat: the possibilities are endless!
Prince Avalanche stars Rudd and Hirsch as road workers Alvin and Lance, who spend the summer isolated from civilization, painting traffic lines on a country road. Alvin is serious and practical, while Lance is more easy-going, as we learn from his story about making out with his friend’s girlfriend in a bathroom. Despite their differences, the two men learn to get along and form a friendship.
Prince Avalanche is in theaters on Aug. 9.
