An Author’s Research Goes Horribly Awry in TRUE FICTION
You know how there are method actors? I’m talking about people like Daniel Day Lewis, who so fully embrace the character that they’re playing that they, for all intents and purposes, become that person during production. Well, never did I think I’d see a movie where I could safely say there’s a method author. But then again, I’m always ready to be proven wrong or to be shown something new and different.
True Fiction is one such film. In it, a young woman travels to a secluded cabin to become an assistant to a famous writer. There, she quickly realizes that she is not just there to help with his everyday needs, she’s there to be the subject of his upcoming novel. And he doesn’t write romance, that’s for sure.
Below is the trailer for the film, which will be making its world premiere at Fantaspoa later this month.
“Avery Malone, a lonely wannabe writer, gets her big break when she’s hand-selected to assist her hero, reclusive author, Caleb Conrad. Whisked away to Caleb’s remote estate, Avery is given her one and only task: participate in a psychological experiment in fear that will serve as the basis for Caleb’s writing. Her stay soon turns dark when she finds herself the subject of Caleb’s all-too-real horror novel.“
Written and directed by Braden Croft, True Fiction stars Sara Garcia, John Cassini, Julian Richings, and Julian Black Antelope.
