Overview

Matt Farnsworth wrote and stars in the independent drama Iowa, which also marks his feature directorial debut. Farnsworth and associate producer/co-star Diane Foster had previously worked on Poor Man's Dope, a documentary about tweaked-out Midwestern methamphetamine addicts and dealers, and that inspired them to make this feature. Farnsworth plays Esper, whose father, a meth addict, dies as the film opens. Esper stands to collect on an insurance policy, but as executor Irv John Savage tells him, only if drug tests on his father come back clean. Esper is involved in a serious relationship with Irv's daughter, Donna Foster, and plans to marry her with or without the money. But Esper's scheming mother, Effie Rosanna Arquette has other plans. She's teamed up with corrupt parole officer, Larry Michael T. Weiss from television's The Pretender, in a vicious plot to get Esper out of the way and collect the insurance money herself. Larry busts Esper and assaults Donna while he's in jail, but Donna finds a way to bail Esper out before Larry can have him killed. Together with their junkie friends, Nick David Backus and Dominique Amanda Tepe, Esper and Donna start up their own meth lab. But Larry is still after Esper, and the methamphetamine business turns out to be more dangerous than any of them had imagined. Iowa had its world premiere in competition at the 2005 Tribeca Film Festival.
