Sundance Selects has released a trailer for Alexandre Moors' directorial debut Blue Caprice (2013), starring Joey Lauren Adams, Isaiah Washington, and Tim Blake Nelson. The film is set to arrive in theaters across the United States on September 13th.
Official synopsis: The striking feature film debut of writer-director Alexandre Moors, Blue Caprice is a harrowing yet restrained psychological thriller about an abandoned boy lured to America into the shadows of a dangerous father figure. Inspired by true events, Blue Caprice investigates the notorious and horrific Beltway sniper attacks from the point of view of the two killers, whose distorted father-son relationship facilitated their long and bloody journey across America.
Marked by captivating performances by Isaiah Washington and Tequan Richmond, lyrical camerawork, and a unique and bold structure, Blue Caprice documents the mechanisms that lead its subjects to embrace physical violence. Blue Caprice paints a riveting portrait of 21st-century America and a haunting depiction of two cold-blooded killers that will endure long after the lights come up.
As someone who lived in the middle of all this (and even went to the middle school where the youngest victim was shot... albeit 4+ years before the shooting), I watched the trailer for this with chills up my back and a sudden flood of memories rushing back. Never would someone feel so paranoid about their gas gauge dropping into "E" territory. October 2002 was one of the longest months of my life :-/
