FARGO — When Andrew Kightlinger shows his new film, "Tater Tot & Patton", at the Fargo Film Festival tonight, the writer/director will be accompanied by the male lead, Bates Wilder. The actor's female co-star, Jessica Rothe was not able to attend. The film's other biggest star also couldn't get the night off. That would be the rural South Dakota landscape that fills the screen in the feature-length family drama. Asked just what role the scenery plays in the film, Kightlinger answers immediately.

The author discusses some dark chapters in his family's history of mental illness which left one sister dead and another in jail for killing her husband.
