I reviewed Scalene last year and it made my top ten non horror list. This is a very fun and good drama, that should have got some Oscar love.
The Truth is Just a Point of View in Breaking Glass Picturesâ€™ Edgy, Preceptual Thriller Scalene
May 14, 2012 – Philadelphia, PA â€” Breaking Glass Pictures is proud to announce the July 31 Blu-Ray (SRP $29.99) and DVD (SRP $24.99) release of Scalene, a dark, edgy thriller that asks you to decide the truth for yourself in the face of tragedy.
Written by Brandon Owens and Zack Parker, Directed by Zack Parker, and starring Emmy Award winner Margo Martindale (â€œJustifiedâ€, â€œA Gifted Manâ€), Hanna Hall (Rob Zombieâ€™s Halloween, The Virgin Suicides) and Adam Scarimbolo (Stake Land). Scalene brings the best and the worst in everyone to the surface in a twisted, layered tale of betrayal, lies and revenge.
Scalene is a perceptual thriller told from three points-of-view revolving around the rape of a female college student by a mentally handicapped man and his motherâ€™s subsequent breakdown. In the varying views, the absolute truth takes a backseat to who can tell the most convincing tale. What really occurred, and who will you believe?
Scalene is the winner of the Dances with Films Best Feature Grand Jury Award and took home the awards for Best Feature and Best Director from the Cincinnati Film Festival. The New York Times called it a â€œdisturbingly clever dramaâ€ while the Village Voice said that â€œstrong performances and a Hitchcock-trained eye build unnerving tension.â€
The DVD release will come packed with special features including a Prologue to the in-depth documentary Perceiving Reality: The Making of Scalene, and the Dances With Films World Premiere, Q&A, and Awards Ceremony featurettes.
The Blu-Ray will exclusively include the full 3.5 hour comprehensive documentary Perceiving Reality: The Making of Scalene, along with the DVD
