Every now and then it’s good to revisit old Charlie and his crazy family. Allow us to introduce Leslie or, as she’s better known, Evil! *cues up Helter Skelter*
The trailer for Leslie, My Name is Evil went live today, and you can dig it by clicking on the one-sheet below. Directed by Reginald Harkema and starring Gregory Smith, Kristen Hager, and Ryan Robbins, the film will be world premiering at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival in the Vanguard Section on Monday, September 14th.
Perry, a sheltered chemist, falls in love with Leslie, a former homecoming princess, when he is selected to be a jury member at her hippie death cult murder trial. Perry has always done what is expected of him. He was a straight-A student who got a good job at a chemical company and proposed to his Christian girlfriend, Dorothy. Leslie took a different path after she was traumatized by Kennedy’s assassination, an abortion and the divorce of her parents. She took LSD, joined a hippie death cult and helped murder a God-fearing citizen in her own home. When Perry and Leslie lock eyes in court, Perry is forced to confront the darkest parts of him and by extension, society. LESLIE, MY NAME IS EVIL is a film that explores how the choices Perry and Leslie make reflect upon the moral choices our society has made.
