Sundance Thriller 'Blue Caprice' Set for a Late September Opening
Briefly: Keep an eye out for this film, it's worth catching. There's a very haunting film titled Blue Caprice that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and also played New Directors/New Films in New York (where I later caught up with it). Sundance Selects picked it up for release and has scheduled it to open limited starting September 20th, 2013 later this fall (date via twitter). That's right around the same time as TIFF and Venice as well. Blue Caprice is a dramatized retelling of the 2002 Beltway sniper attacks, focusing on the two individuals doing the killing, starring Isaiah Washington and Tequan Richmond.
Blue Caprice is directed by Alexandre Moors, with a screenplay by R.F.I. Porto. Here's an except from our friend Raffi's review on The Film Stage: "Featuring one of the best performances from the festival in the form of Washington’s frightening portrayal of Muhammad, Moors has crafted a multi-layered dissection of one of the countries most incomprehensible crimes… Perhaps the best debut feature film to come out of Sundance 2013, Blue Caprice is a fascinating and haunting portrait that will leave you conflicted regarding the meaning behind a meaningless crime."
