We told you exclusively that E.L. (Evan) Katz‘s dramatic thriller Small Crimes, which stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Jacki Weaver, Robert Forster, Gary Cole, Molly Parker, Macon Blair, and even Pat Healy, was acquired by Netflix ahead of the SXSW world premiere this week. Now, Netflix has supplied us with a trailer and news that it will stream worldwide on April 28, 2017.
Katz may be a fresh name at the upcoming SXSW Film Festival, but he’s actually a genre veteran. Now a director, he made his name by penning Autopsy, as well as two of Adam Wingard’s earlier films, Pop Skull and Home Sick, while also producing Tobe Hooper’s Mortuary. He also directed the best ABCs of Death 2 short, “A is for Amateur”, which was anything but.
After serving time for the attempted murder of a District Attorney, disgraced former cop Joe Denton (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) returns home looking for redemption. An embarrassment to his parents and abandoned by his ex-wife, it seems as if things can’t get much worse. But then Joe finds himself trapped in the mess he left behind-in the cross fire between a crooked sheriff, the vengeful DA, and a mafia kingpin who knows too much.
This year’s SXSW takes place March 10-19 in Austin, Texas.
