“INNOCENCE,” a supernatural thriller set in a New York prep school will have its World Premiere at the 2013 Austin Film Festival. The fim is described as a chilling allegory of the precarious state of the American teenager, and the film explore themes of loss, the human condition and a society torn between purity and narcissism.
Haunted by nightmares about the death of her beloved mother who died in a Montauk surfing accident, 16-year-old Beckett (Sophie Curtis, “The English Teacher,” 2013) and her father, novelist Miles (Linus Roache, “Batman Begins,” 2005), move to Manhattan in an attempt to piece together their shattered lives. Now enrolled at the exclusive Hamilton Preparatory School, Beckett’s psychosis and hallucinations intensify with the dubious suicides of current and past students. Beckett falls in love with the handsome, caring Tobey (Graham Phillips, “Evan Almighty,” 2007) as she discovers that her new school may be run by a coven of beautiful and seductive women including school nurse Pamela (Kelly Reilly, “Me and Orson Wells,” 2008), psychiatrist Vera (Sarita Choudhury, “Lady in the Water,” 2006) and Tobey’s mother, Natalie, (Stephanie March, “Law & Order SVU”) who perpetuate their youth by drinking the blood of virgins.
“INNOCENCE,” will screen at the State Theatre on Saturday, October 26th at 10:30 PM and on Wednesday, October 30th at 9:30PM at the IMAX Theatre at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum.
This looks great!
