With movies like “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints” opening this week and now the trailer for “Blue Caprice” hitting the web (via The Film Stage), most of the country is starting to see some of the fruits of this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
Isaiah Washington and Tequan Richmond won raves in Park City, Utah after the audiences there saw their performances as the two Beltway snipers, a bizarre pseudo father-son duo that struck terror in the area surrounding Washington D.C. when they killed 10 people and injured 3 others in October 2002.
“Blue Caprice” has been well-reviewed with critics applauding the strong performances from Washington and Tequan, as well as the film’s cinematography and chilling tone, all of which is on display in the trailer.
Watch the trailer and read the official synopsis after the jump!
Inspired by true events, BLUE CAPRICE investigates the notorious and horrific Beltway sniper attacks from the point of view of the two perpetrators, whose distorted father-son relationship facilitated their long and bloody journey across America. Marked by captivating performances by Isaiah Washington and Tequan Richmond, lyrical camerawork, and a unique and bold structure, BLUE CAPRICE documents the mechanisms that lead its subjects to embrace physical violence. BLUE CAPRICE paints a riveting portrait of 21st-century America and a haunting depiction of two cold-blooded killers that endures long after the lights come up.
“Blue Caprice” opens in theaters on September 13.
