Not sure how we missed hearing about the new indie thriller Unrequited, especially since it stars one of the Twilight kids, Michael Welch, but considering he’s a human in the Saga rather than a sparkly vamp or a member of the wolf pack, I guess it’s understandable. In any event, a trailer landed online today for Unrequited, and we’ve got a look at it right here.
First, though, here’s a synopsis of the film, which is directed by Jason Epperson (runner-up on the Steven Spielberg-produced Fox reality series “On The Lot”) from a screenplay by Jeffrey Day and Thomas Lockridge: Unrequited tells the story of Ben Jacobs (Welch), a troubled young man who, on his 18th birthday, must leave the group home for “troubled teens” where he has been living for the past several months. After moving back in with his mother (Clare Carey), Ben discovers that his girlfriend, Jessica Morgan (Sarah Habel), has moved on with her life and is now dating an older college guy. Desperate for love and unable to cope with losing Jessica, Ben’s troubled past catches up with him as he kidnaps her in an attempt to regain her affection. Spiraling out of control and on a very dangerous path, Ben must ultimately decide whether to let her go, or hold on to the one person he loves, even if it means destroying them both in the process.
