Canadian writer/director Emanuel Hoss-Desmarais won the Best New Narrative Director prize at last year year's Tribeca Film Festival for the thriller "Whitewash," and he's excited to see how it's received when everyone has a chance to see it. "Now I just can't wait for Americans to discover Thomas Haden Church's performance," Hoss-Desmarais said when Oscilloscope Laboratories picked up the film last year. The release is impending and we've got an exclusive trailer for you to check out.

Starring Thomas Haden Church, the film follows a snowplow operator who accidentally commits murder and must deal with the fallout. Cleverly set against the backdrop of rural Quebec, where the man likely already feels like an outsider, this one likes like a noir tinged thriller with a nice sense of mood and atmosphere. Here's the full synopsis:

In the harsh, wintry woods of rural Quebec, Bruce (Academy Award®-nominee Thomas Haden Church), a down-on-his-luck snowplow operator, accidentally kills a man during a drunken night joyride. Stricken with panic, he hides the body and takes to the deep wilderness in hopes of outrunning both the authorities and his own conscience. But as both begin to close in, Bruce falls apart mentally and morally and mysteries unravel to reveal who he was before the accident, the truth behind his victim, and the circumstances that brought them together in a single moment. A darkly comic noir in the vein of the Coen Brothers, Emanuel Hoss-Desmarais's WHITEWASH is a gripping exploration of a well-meaning Everyman at the end of his rope.

"Whitewash" opens nationwide on all VOD platforms — including iTunes, Amazon, and XBOX Live — on May 2nd. Check out the trailer below.
