NEW CITY, N.Y. - November 15, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

After playing in theaters for over 21 weeks alongside summer blockbusters like Top Gun: Maverick, Jurassic Dominion, Dr Strange, and Elvis, Archway Pictures' LOVE IN KILNERRY is finally available for purchase/rent. It is the longest-running comedy in North America in 2022 according to Box Office information. The first week on sale, it ranked as the #11 comedy in the country on digital platforms and #15 the second week, on Rotten Tomatoes. 

The story is about the elderly residents of this small remote town who panic when the EPA announces that mandatory changes to their chemical plant, which created a compound used in dog shampoo, could cause a dramatic increase to their libido. The sheriff, played by Daniel Keith (writer, producer, director), tries to maintain order and decency but mayhem ensues. Keith says he loved the Irish and British dramas and comedies of the '90s and early 2000s, like Waking Ned DevineThe Full MontyLove Actually, and Billy Elliot, and wanted to keep it in a similar vein. He hired John Wilson (Billy Elliot, Downton Abbey) to edit the film and Randy Edelman (Last of the Mohicans) to write and perform an original score. Company 3 (A Star is Born) helped give the film its '90s-ish RomCom look.

Keith had originally written the story as a play that was workshopped in front of audiences for a year when he received advice from a producer from the Tony-winning Broadway musical and movie, ONCE, to convert the story into a screenplay. Because of costs, he Americanized it to take place in Kilnerry, New Hampshire, (a fictional town). Keith raised $1.2 million and took his crew to Portsmouth, NH, to make the movie. On April 9, 2022, the mayor of Portsmouth, Deaglan McEachern, signed an official decree renaming the town to Kilnerry every April 9 for "Kilnerry Day". A day in which businesses change their names and thousands of local residents from New Hampshire watch the film at the music hall, shop, and engage in festivities. Consequently, Kilnerry, NH, can now be found on Google Maps.

In 2021, Keith made 54 gifs from the movie that he uploaded to Giphy.com. Those gifs were used over 125 million times worldwide on social media and smartphones. Metaskye, a company that builds Web3 tools meant to democratize the internet through cryptocurrency and NFTs, partnered with Keith's production company, Archway Pictures, to release 10,000 Love in Kilnerry NFTs and cryptocurrency on Nov. 17.

DIRECTOR, PRODUCER, WRITER, STAR - DANIEL KEITH - Daniel Keith was born and raised in, Bedford, Texas. He performed in acting troops as a child and was the lead singer/ songwriter of the band, Modakai. He studied Liberal Arts at the University of North Texas before enrolling in Stella Adler Studio of Acting in New York City, Circle in the Square Theater School, Atlantic Theater, Magnet Theater, and in 2021 studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London. In 2013, his first short film, Rambler, won him several Best Actor awards, which landed him on Person of Interest (NBC), Blacklist (NBC), Blindspot (CBS), and Marvel's Luke Cage (Netflix).

Todd and Mandy Davenport’s New Book ‘Beauty From Ashes: Marriage, Infidelity, Restoration’ Explores the Author’s Journey to Heal Their Marriage Following Infidelity

EDMOND, Okla. - December 5, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Fulton Books authors Todd and Mandy Davenport, who have been married since 2005 and are the proud parents of two wonderful children, have completed their most recent book "Beauty from Ashes: Marriage, Infidelity, Restoration": an inspiring account of how the authors managed to salvage and strengthen their marriage after almost losing it entirely.

"Sometimes life throws us an unimaginable circumstance that seems insurmountable," write Todd and Mandy. "How we handle these monumental occurrences will not only shape the future of our lives but those around us whom we care the most about. When infidelity entered our marriage not once but twice, we found ourselves facing many decisions that no one can ever be prepared to make. We were standing at the base of a massive mountain that we either had to climb, knowing that we could fail, or just quit and turn away from the precipice. Do we stay together? If we do, how do we start? Where do we start? Do we separate or divorce? How does that life look? Will the kids be okay? What about finances? All these questions had to be answered all while dealing with feelings of isolation, pain, confusion and depression.

"While the task of transforming as people and spouses under these circumstances is daunting and terrifying, evolution, growth and success are not only possible but likely if you are willing to lay down everything and put in the selfless work that is required. In 'Beauty from Ashes,' we walk through our highs and lows as well as the steps we took to heal our marriage and family. If we can be successful, so can you. Our prayer in writing this book is for people to see that recovery is possible and to spark some hope in the lives of those who are preparing to make the journey to healing."

Published by Fulton Books, Todd and Mandy Davenport's book is an enlightening read that explores one's options in a marriage when faced with infidelity, outside of separation and divorce. Despite the initial hurt that it may cause, Todd and Mandy use their story to reveal that infidelity can lead to a stronger marriage through communication, hard work, and recentering one's marital union to focus on God.

Readers who wish to experience this eye-opening work can purchase "Beauty from Ashes: Marriage, Infidelity, Restoration" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
