The Park Bench mixes live action with vivid animation to create a whimsical tale of life, love – and literature. Emily, a librarian-to-be, is assigned to tutor Mateo, a rogue Latino undergrad, in American Lit. – but like any classic story, things grow complicated when they share more than a good book.
The Park Bench stars Walter Perez (The Avengers, Friday Night Lights) and Nicole Hayden (Mad Men, How I Met Your Mother) as two opposites who learn about each other through the books they read. Utilizing animation with live action, The Park Bench reveals how our stories shape our lives.
