Retake premiered last Summer at San Francisco’s Frameline Film Festival, and now it’s heading towards its DVD/VoD release, courtesy of Breaking Glass Picture. It’s certainly got a good cast, including Tuc Watkins (Desperate Housewives), Devon Graye (American Horror Story: Asylum), Derek Phillips (Friday Night Lights) and Kit Williamson (Mad Men).
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Jonathan (Tuc Watkins) — a handsome businessman — flies into San Francisco and hires a young hustler (Devon Graye) to accompany him a road trip to the Grand Canyon, with a catch: he must role-play as someone named “Brandon.”
On the road, “Brandon” comes to realize he’s playing a vital role in the recreation of Jonathan’s lovelorn past. As the hustler digs for clues, Jonathan insists that he stick to the role he was hired for. Eager to leave his own past behind and feeling a strange connection with his unique client, he sheds his own identity and plays the part. An amorous game of obsession and manipulation commences, as these two broken souls get closer to their destination.’
The film will be released next year. Watch the new trailer below. [Read more…]
