Nick Krause, who starred opposite George Clooney and Shailene Woodley in The Descendants, plays a troubled teen that has been tormented by visions since his alcoholic father (Trammell) forced him to kill an innocent rabbit while hunting as a boy. Now that Harlon (Krause) is a bullied HIGH SCHOOL student, his undiagnosed mental illness is getting worse. He begins to hear voices and his imagination encourages him to carry out violent acts. Things begin to look up when Julie (Robertson), a rebellious young girl, moves to town and befriends Harlon. But when she betrays him, the rabbit along with other imaginary comic book characters taunt him into committing one final act of revenge.
White Rabbit made its world premiere at Zurich Film Festival and saw its North American premiere at the 2014 Catalina Film Festival where it won Best Feature Film. The film also won Best Cinematography at Chelsea Film Festival and Best Actor (Krause), Best Supporting Actor (Trammell), and Best Supporting Actress (Robertson) at the Boston Film Festival.
