The 2012 Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival is back and will showcase some of the most unique and underrated films around. Please check out their website for a wide range of films that you may not usually get to see (it’s a shame that such amazing films don’t always make it to the mainstream movie theatre’s due to lesser known stars or for other silly reasons). Please visit http://www.fliff.com/ for the films that will be playing from October 19th till November 11th. We have the acclaimed “Deadfall” featured below but is just one of many-PLEASE support these films and tell your friends as well!

Deadfall:

Synopsis

 

Stefan Ruzowitzky, whose film, THE COUNTERFITTERS won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film in 2007, has created one of the best all-time thrillers in DEADFALL.  A dynamite cast, terrific script, picturesque locations and a plot that has you on the edge of your seat.  This is a “don’t miss”!

Winter.  Somewhere near the Canadian border on the U.S. side.  A pair of robbers are on the run with bags of cash from a freshly held up casino.  With the heat gettin’ hotter, the pair split up in the frozen landscape.  Not so far away, we meet Jay, a boxer who just finished doing time in the state pen and decides to head home to Ma ‘n Pa for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving.  Pa is the retired sheriff and their homestead is quite a trek from civilization out in the snow covered country.

I think you see where we are headed here.  I don’t even like this genre of film…it scares me too much!  But this script is so good.  The cast so accomplished including Sissy Spacek, Kris Kristofferson, Treat Williams, Charlie Hunnam and brilliantly starring Eric Bana and Olivia Wilde in their best roles to date..  And Ruzowitzky’s direction so sharp…I was riveted for 94 heart stopping minutes.
