Henry May Long (Feature Film)

A Help the Bombardier Production

Written & Directed by Randall Sharp

It is 1887, the dawn of the modern world. Henry May, the golden child of one of New York's finest families, is coming to the end of his long road to self destruction. Running into Henry Long, an old friend who is suffering from a terminal illness, proves to be the beginning of a profound journey for both men.

They re-kindle their friendship and we discover that each needs the other but for different reasons. Together they journey away from family and pressures in New York to take a Christmas whaling expedition. In the harbor town of New Bedford their true motives are revealed and each man changes irrevocably.

HENRY MAY LONG examines relationships between men and women, friends and potential lovers. The nature of unrequited love and true friendship are explored against the backdrop of 1887 New York and New Bedford, moving from Henry May's family mansion to fashionable cafés to harbor-side, where the majestic whaling ships are docked.

The original motion picture soundtrack to Henry May Long, from internationally acclaimed composer Max Richter, is available on iTunes.

“RANDALL SHARP, HENRY MAY LONG AND MAX RICHTER | The Talented Mr. Ripley by way of Somerset Maugham, Henry May Long is a drama about two men, Henry May and Henry Long, set in the upper crust and under belly of 1887 New York City.”
“'Henry May Long' has the the look of a much more expensive production. Writer/director Randy Sharp brings late 19th century New York to life with her use of historical locations for shooting and the way she lights her scenes. It isn't often that one comes across a smaller feature as ambitious as this, and for that alone Sharp is to be commended.”
“If Edith Wharton had written 'The Talented Mr. Ripley,' it would look a lot like writer/director Randall Sharp's debut film ... the film incorporates visually stunning interiors, including luxurious turn-of-the-century New York mansions, hole in the wall bars and bordellos and colorful seaside rooming houses. With cinematography steeped in sumptuously rich burgundy velvets, black wools, luscious mahogany woods, bright porcelain china and gold artifacts, the film is a darkly intimate feast for the eyes.”
