Tribeca Film has extended its relationship with Alex Karpovsky and has acquired North American rights to RUBBERNECK, a film Karpovsky co-wrote, directed, and starred in. Tribeca Film is planing to release it in February 2013. Tribeca Film is planning on releasing RUBBERNECK in select theatrical screenings and offering the film on demand in more than 40 million homes in the U.S and Canada through a variety of video-on-demand platforms as well as iTunes, Amazon Watch Instantly, VUDU, Xbox, Google Play, and YouTube.
RUBBERNECK is co-written by Karpovsky and Garth Donovan and stars Karpovsky in the lead, Jaime Ray Newman, and Dennis Staroselsky. The film had it’s premier at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival and since then has been having an extremely successful film festival run. RUBBERNECK is being described as a “slow-burn character study-turned-psychosexual thriller” and as a “chillingly believable story of workplace romance gone wrong.” Check out the plot crunch:
Paul Harris is a scientist at a small research facility on the outskirts of Boston. After a weekend tryst with Danielle, an attractive and promiscuous co-worker, leaves him wanting more, his unreciprocated desires gradually mold into an acute infatuation over the following months. When Danielle takes interest in a new researcher at the laboratory, Paul’s suppressed resentments and perverse delusions finally become unhinged, triggering an horrific course of events that mercilessly engulf a tortured past and fugitive present. A slow-burning, character-driven psychosexual thriller, Rubberneck navigates through the binds of childhood, the underpinnings of obsessions, and our sadistic inability to look away.
