“Brutally Yours” Feature in Development

by indiaautry

I’ve been deep in development of the feature film “Brutally Yours” since my return from Cannes.

The film includes the high-profile topic of mass incarceration.

Logline: An interracial couple struggles with alcoholism, childhood trauma and the racial inequalities of the criminal justice system.

I met with the co-writer of one of my favorite films, “The Place Beyond the Pines,” Darius Marder, who wrote the script with my favorite director of all time, Derek Cianfrance. Darius was amazing inspiration for re-drafting my script.

I’m in talks with amazing people to be a part of this film:
Christina Hendricks (“Drive,” “Lost River”)

I also met Reed Morano, a indie darling cinematographer and director (“Meadowland”) at Tribeca Film Fest in the spring. Also met at Tribeca: Ben Mendelsohn – “The Place Beyond the Pines” and “Lost River,” Alex Orlovsky, producer of “Blue Valentine,” “Half Nelson” & “The Place Beyond the Pines” and “True Detective” director Cary Fukunaga.
