PHOTO BOOTH: Sold Out Chicago Premiere of John Mossman’s ‘Good Guy with a Gun’
It was a spectacular evening for an Illinois-made independent feature, and SCREEN has photos for you from the festivities. John Mossman’s explosive film Good Guy with a Gun attracted a capacity crowd for its Chicago Premiere, hosted by the Gene Siskel Film Center and the Midwest Film Festival.
The film earned a high-profile World Premiere at the Dances with Films Festival in New York City before returning home for its Illinois Premiere.

A Closer Look at Good Guy With A Gun
Good Guy With A Gun is the story of a young man trying to find his place in the world. The search begins when his father is killed by violence in Chicago and he moves to the country with his mother. He makes bad choices, endures life-threatening consequences and, of course, gets into guns. According to Mossman, who also wrote the script, it is “one Midwestern boy’s journey into the heart of darkness.”
“But it has its charm,” he adds. “It’s really a coming of age story, a family drama, a rural noir about a woman and her son.”
