As a writing team, Jared and Jerusha Hess have created characters and subsequent universes so unique and funny that they have, on more than one occasion, created instant cult hits that are often quoted for years to come. First with their indie hit NAPOLEON DYNAMITE, then with their follow-up NACHO LIBRE, the Hesses have shown us a vision of the world that reminds us all of the random, awkward, dry, and laughable moments and people we encounter at various points in our lives. The case is no different with their next film GENTLEMEN BRONCOS.

As a husband and wife, Jared and Jerusha could not be a better fit, or two nicer people. It's great to see when just the right people meet, come together, and find something between them to create something awesome. In the Hesses' case, it's both a great creative pairing as well as well as a seemingly great relationship.

Check out our interview with Jared and Jerusha, in which we discuss this unique vision of the world they have created, as well as what went into writing and making GENTLEMEN BRONCOS.
