Blue Caprice

A film that just might be this year's award's season sleeper, given that virtually no one is talking about it right now - especially when conversations are had about black actors who might be in the running for performance trophies.

Don't forget about Isaiah Washington in Blue Caprice, a film that debuted at the Sundance Film Festival, and was picked up by Sundance Selects.

I should also say, don't forget director Alexandre Moors (his debut feature) and co-star Tequan Richmond

Penned by R.F.I. Porto, and co-produced by Ron Simons (SimonSays Entertainment), alongside Isen Robbins, Aimee Schoof, Stephen Tedeschi, Brian O’Carroll, Kim Jackson and Will RowbothamBlue Caprice is based on the story of the real-life Beltway sniper attacks of 2002, perpetrated by John Allen Muhammad, and Lee Boyd Malvo.

It's described as a haunting psychological thriller about an abandoned boy (Richmond) lured to America into the shadows of a dangerous father figure (Washington), and how their distorted father-son relationship facilitated their long and bloody journey across the USA.

Sundance Selects will release the film on September 13th. I'd guess a limited theatrical in a handful of major markets, immediately followed by a VOD release for the rest of the country, which isn't out of the ordinary for Sundance Selects.

The MPAA has officially marked the film with an expected 'R' rating for "disturbing violent content, language and brief drug use." I'd be somewhat surprised if it was anything but, given the subject matter it tackles, as we know it. Although, from what I've been told, it's less about the violent bloodbath that was the real-life episode that inspired the film. Its focus is more on the relationship between John Allen and Lee Boyd, and less about the act that they have become infamous for.

The film's first trailer has debuted and is embedded below:
