Indie Spotlight: Weinsteins Nab Tricia Helfer's Walk All Over Me

In an attempt to shed some light on some independent films and expand our horizons from the typical mainstream blockbusters and comic book movies, I'm going to occasionally feature an indie movie that's in the news. Today it's a Toronto Film Fest acquisition of an indie film titled Walk All Over Me from young writer/director Robert Cuffley. The film stars "Battlestar Galactica's" gorgeous Tricia Helfer as well as Leelee Sobieski and is described as a coming-of-age crime thriller. The Weinstein Company just picked up US distribution rights for the film.

Tricia HelferWalk All Over Me is about a small-town girl, Alberta (Sobieski), who runs into big-time trouble with the mob and then assumes the dominatrix identity of her roommate Celene (Helfer) to pay the bills. For once we may have gotten some of you interested in an indie - imagine either Leelee Sobieski or Tricia Helfer as a dominatrix and some of you are probably already sold.

Coincidentally, although it played at the Toronto Film Festival, I have not seen a single review of the film. Apparently the response was good enough to warrant a reaction from the film's seller.

"We were very pleased at the overwhelming response Walk All Over Me had in Cannes and Toronto," says Evan Tylor, president and founder of IndustryWorks. "With its obvious commercial appeal, we look forward to a great success in the closing the remaining territories at both MIPCOM and the upcoming American Film Market."

Keep your eye out for the theatrical release of Walk All Over Me, which should be fairly limited. It's likely the Weinstein's will be using Tricia Helfer's name to really promote the film. I'll admit I'm curious, but given the real lack of exposure or even a single review from the fest, I'm not sure what to think. If you know anyone who has seen it - please chime in!

    Nice bit o' news - I was the publicist for Walk All Over Me and here is the skinny on the lack of reviews - because the film is going to be getting its Canadian theatrical release within the next few months the film's Canadian distributor requested no reviews run until it is time to get paying customers in seats - makes sense, no??? But yes - the two screenings at the Toronto International Film Festival were packed - sold out in 48 minutes online, and the reception was no less than awesome. Want some more info on the show?

    I saw the film at the Calgary International Film Festival and it was awesome. Quirky, funny, sexy... it definitely lives up to its description as a thriller/comedy. I highly recommend it!
