Are you a fan of The Notebook or The Fault in Our Stars? If so, we have a must-see movie for you – New Life! And if you’re a Friday Night Lights fan, be prepared to get even more excited, as this film is actually the directorial debut of Drew Waters (who played Wade Aikmen on the series).
The film has won a number of awards this year, and most recently took home the “Best Director”, “Best Lead Actor” and “Best Film” awards in London’s 2017 Romford Film Festival.
“We are so honored by the recent wins we’ve had at film festivals,” said director Drew Waters, now two time Best Director winner for New Life. “We had a great team that helped create this film and to see all the hard work recognized is a tremendous gift.”
“New Life being recognized in this way is such an honor,” said writer and film star Erin Bethea. “We share this with all of the talented people who helped make the film possible. And we hope that this will continue to spread the message about the powerful impact of this story.”
New Life tells the story of Benjamin Morton (Jonathan Patrick Moore) and Ava (Erin Bethea), who meet as children. What began as a childhood friendship grows into a meaningful relationship as the two plan out their lives together. When life takes a turn neither of them expected, their entire future is called into question, and they must decide what it really means to make the most of life.

Argentum Entertainment has released the DVD, DIGITAL and VOD award-winning film just in time for the holiday season.
New Life is produced and cowritten by Erin Bethea and Drew Waters as the premiere feature of their production company Argentum Entertainment.
