Mysterious forces, personal demons, dark humor and gripping performances combine in the genre-defying tour-de-force Resolution. Tribeca Film today announced it has acquired all North American rights to rising directing duo Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson’s naturalistic-yet-otherworldly thriller. The film’s enigmatic narrative and fresh take on genre filmmaking captivated audiences and critics at its Tribeca Film Festival and Fantasia International Film Festival premieres earlier this year. John Marrone was a fan, as was myself.
“Michael is committed to getting his best friend Chris to sober up and put his life back on track. But what begins as an attempt to save his friend’s life quickly takes an unexpected turn as the two friends confront personal demons, the consequences of past actions, and forces beyond their control. Expertly balancing dark humor, heart, and thrills, Resolution is an utterly unique cinematic experience that defies genre classification.”
Tribeca Film plans an early 2013 theatrical release day and date with on-demand platforms, where it will be available in 40+ million homes through a variety of video-on-demand offerings, as well as iTunes, Amazon Watch Instantly, VUDU and Xbox. A strong festival run is set ahead of the commercial release.
