Bozeman, MT. Hatch Festival had a special screening of "Prime" starring Meryl Streep, Uma Thurman, Bryan Greenberg and Jon Abrahams, as part of it’s on screen line-up for the 2nd Annual Hatch Audiovisual Arts Festival Bozeman, MT held October 4th-9th 2005.

With the official release date set for October 28th 2005, Hatch attendees and participants were among the first to view Universal’s "Prime" on the big screen, at this year’s Hatch Film Festival. "Prime" is a sophisticated character comedy about Rafi (Thurman) a recently divorced 37-year-old career woman from Manhattan and what happens when Dave, a 23-year-old painter from Brooklyn (Bryan Greenberg), falls in love with her. Rafi's therapist, Lisa (Streep), is gingerly helping Rafi out of her post-divorce slump and through the urgent alarm of her ticking biological clock. PRIME looks at love from everyone's point of view -- friends, relatives, and in this case, Rafi's therapist -- and follows all who come apart, and some who pull it together, when two people fall in love.

Stratus Film’s Prime, starring Meryl Streep, Uma Thurman, Bryan Greenberg and Jon Abrahams, is written and directed by Ben Younger (Boiler Room) and is produced by Jennifer Todd and Suzanne Todd under their Team Todd banner.
