PRLog - Feb. 25, 2014 - NEW YORK -- Directed by James Guadiso and Anthony Guadiso and also written by Anthony Guadiso, The Ghost and the Whale tells the story of Joseph Hawthorne (Maurice Benard), a bi-polar man who went off to sea with the love of his life and returned back to the sleepy town of Bodega alone. His wife Annabel Lee’s (Madeleine Hamer) disappearance and his subsequent exoneration creates a divided mystery among the town and moreover her bloodthirsty family.
One year later, acclaimed journalist Ed Hale (James Gaudioso) has been called to Bodega to cover Joseph’s mysterious and still untold story. A toilsome proposition, now that Joseph has relapsed into an untreated state, alternating between hysterical mania and crippling melancholia. Often times Joseph will seek sanctuary down by the water with his only friend, a massive Gray Whale (Jonathan Pryce).
Ed recruits the help of a gregarious townsman and wanna be writer, Mitch Captree (Bryan MckKinley) to help navigate the terrain and local customs. After ten years of incarceration, the most diabolical of her brothers, Jack Lee (Anthony Gaudioso) returns home to exact his revenge. Now, both Ed and Joseph must survive long enough to unveil the truth before the Lee’s bury them both.
Being such a huge fan and admirer of General Hospital actor, Maurice Bernard, Gaspari jumped at the idea of investing into the film and taking on the title of co-executive producer. Bernard is a huge advocator for the awareness of Bipolar Disorder, since he is Bipolar himself, and has been on multiple shows across the nation such as Oprah, talking openly about this disorder. This mysterious film also stars actress Tippi Hedren, who is most famous for her lead role in the movie, The Birds, which was also filmed in Bodega. Other producers of the flick, include Steve and Tori Humphrey, Paula Benard, Kevin Levrone, Matt Russell, David Brady, and of course both directors, the Gaudioso brothers.
