REVIEW: HIDE AWAY
Entering an idyllic harbor as a broken and haunted man, a former businessman (Josh Lucas, Sweet Home Alabama, The Firm) buys and boards the dilapidated sailboat Hesperus. Disturbed at night by unsettling dreams of his family, the boat becomes a beacon of hope as he begins the challenge of bringing back the shine to the tarnished star..
Watching “The Young Mariner” from the harbor café are three equally mysterious residents: a waitress (Ayelet Zurer, Angels & Demons) with a piercingly watchful eye on Hesperus; the veteran mariner (James Cromwell, The Artist), a salty, soulful man unable to reconcile his own past; and a newly single father (Jon Tenney), whose boisterous enthusiasm for his newfound freedom contrasts with The Young Mariner’s deliberate solitude..
Following a day-date theatrical, VOD and digital release in May 2012, Flatiron Film Company, a label of Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp. (NASDAQ: CIDM)’s Entertainment Group, will release HIDE AWAY, directed by Chris Eyre (Smoke Signals) on August 21 on DVD. The film world premiered at the 2011 SXSW Film Festival, where it won the Grand Jury Prize in the Cinematography, Narrative Feature Competition..
“Eyre (Smoke Signals) and the cinematographer, Elliot Davis (he shot the first of the Twilight saga movies), create gorgeous images that carry the film along, including a procession of local boats decorated for Christmas, sweeping through the night as the hero watches, alone. Best of all, the often underused Lucas gives us a stirring, fresh take on a familiar story.” – IndieWire.
“Emotion, and information are communicated through the actor’s actions and reactions, supported by images, sound and score,” said producer Sally Jo Effenson. “It is our hope the movie will strike a chord with audiences who may not necessarily relate to the specific events depicted, but to the mood and to the character’s romantic notions of starting over and recreating your life. It is a place to which we can all relate, given the times in which we live.”
