In Texas the most deadly weapon is an unappreciated woman. On August 14th, 2012, Anchor Bay Films presents the gory, cunning comedy/thriller that will leave a welcomed bad taste in your mouth with Breathless. This Texas Gothic tale comes from director Jesse Baget (Wrestlemaniac, the upcoming Cellmates) and Academy Award winning executive producer Nicolas Chartier (The Hurt Locker).
Lorna (Gina Gershon, Showgirls, P.S. I Love You) is a strong-willed Texas woman who’s had enough of her untrustworthy husband, Dale’s (Val Kilmer, Top Gun, Batman Forever), criminal acts and lack of husbandry. Fed up, she enlists the help of her old friend, Tiny (Kelli Giddish, NBC’s “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”), to help her figure out what to do with Dale after his latest double-cross involving the theft of $100,000 from a bank.
As the girls brainstorm for a “neat” solution, they medicate themselves with only the best of prescriptions – Tennessee whiskey – which leads them to even bigger problems. When Sheriff Cooley (Ray Liotta, Goodfellas, Hannibal) inconveniently enters the conundrum, the story evolves into a tale of revenge and survival that resolves in true Texas fashion: bold and ruthless.
Breathless is co-written, directed and edited by Jesse Baget and co-written by Stefania Moscato. Mark Holder, Danny Roth and Christine Holder produced, with Nadine De Barros and Nicolas Chartier as executive producers. Music is by Jermaine Stegall, Bill Otto is Director of Photography and Nathan Lay is Production Designer.
