Official Trailer for Thriller 'Measure of Revenge' Starring Melissa Leo
"They have to pay!" Vertical Ent. has released a trailer for an indie thriller titled Measure of Revenge, marking the feature directorial debut of a director called "Peyfa" - with no past credits or any other details about them. The film is arriving on VOD in March if anyone is interested. Melissa Leo stars as a Broadway actress who is making her final on-stage appearance when her famous son, Curtis, is found dead. When his death is ruled as an accidental overdose, a suspicious Lillian decides to take matters into her own hands. On a quest for answers, she strikes up an unlikely alliance with her son's drug dealer, Taz, setting in motion a bloody warpath to uncover the truth and punish the people who killed her son. Her revenge story is inspired by characters she's played on stage in her career. The cast inlcudes Bella Thorne, Jake Weary, Roma Maffia, Benedict Samuel, Adrian Martinez, and Michael Potts. Alas this looks like yet another bland tale of revenge, the only difference being Melissa Leo getting extra emotional with all her many characters.
