Directors Ian and Eshom Nelms have created several films in the past. In fact, their film "Night of the Dog" was shown at the Palm Beach International Film Festival before and won an audience award, among other accolades as it hit the film circuit.

Now these brothers are back with their feature film "Lost on Purpose." Starring Jane Kaczmarek, C. Thomas Howell, Octavia Spencer, among many other well-known actors, this film is a love letter to the Central Valley (Visalia, CA) where they grew up. The setting revolves around five brothers who work a dairy farm operated by a feisty woman, Elizabeth James, played by Kaczmarek, who struggles to keep her business alive and away from greedy takers like Delbert Furgeson (Howell) while the bills mount. The brothers have struggles of their own as they try to make their way after college.  Whether it is trying to get along with the locals, be successful with the opposite sex or make it in showbiz as part of a band, these boys find life isn't quite so easy, but it is made easier by a beer and the support of each other.
