Matthew Garrett’s Morris County anthology will be available on March 18th via Beneath the Underground, and also members of the Beneath the Underground Facebook page will have an opportunity to purchase a “Bootleg Edition” DVD of the film. Here are some stills, the trailer, and more details.
From the Press Release:
Award-winning writer/director Matthew Garrett (Beating Hearts) presents a trilogy of thematically connected stories as gruesome as they are tragic and heartfelt.
– Darcy Miller is “Ellie,” a damaged teenage girl harboring a terrible secret. Through the course of one traumatic day, we learn what led this innocent girl down a path of self-destruction from which there is no return.
– In “The Family Rubin,” an upper middle-class Jewish family struggles to keep up appearances as their seemingly perfect life begins to crack at the seams. Albie Selznick (Ricochet, “The Young & The Restless”) leads an ensemble cast in this shocking and heartbreaking take on the destruction of the modern American family.
– Elderly Iris is laid off in “Elmer & Iris,” forcing her to join her curmudgeonly husband in early retirement. When Elmer suddenly dies, Iris decides to keep his decaying body around out of fear of living – and dying – alone. Pamela Stewart (Hal Hartley’s Trust and Amateur), Erik Fransden (“The Colbert Report”), and newcomer Alice Cannon star in this melancholy meditation on loss and the inescapable prison of old age.
“Bolstered by grotesque FX from Brian Spears and Pete Gerner (I Sell the Dead, Stake Land, The Innkeepers) and a diverse score by electronic musician David Kristian (Karim Hussein’s La Belle Bete and Douglas Buck’s Prologue and Sisters), Morris County exposes suburbia’s dark heart and the self-destructive compulsions that fester within.” – Kier-La Janisse, author of House of Psychotic Women.
Starting on March 18, 2014, Morris County will be available for digital rental/purchase through BeneathTheUnderground.com via their VOD service. There will be a DVD “Bootleg Edition” release available through the Beneath the Underground Facebook Group for members only with a 2-week window (March 7-21) for purchase limited by the amount ordered.
