Alex Lehmann’s narrative feature debut BLUE JAY, starring Mark Duplass and Sarah Paulson and premiering next month at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival will get a theatrical awards-qualifying release on October 7, followed by digital on October 11, via The Orchard.
Netflix will be releasing the film on its worldwide streaming platform later this year.
The screenplay for BLUE JAY was written by Mark Duplass, who previously collaborated with Alex Lehmann as the producer of his documentary ASPERGER’S ARE US, which is also slated for release this fall. Sarah Paulson was recently nominated for an Emmy® Award for her portrayal of Marcia Clark in the hit FX mini-series “The People v. OJ Simpson: An American Crime Story.”
BLUE JAY, a tender, wise and affecting chamber romantic drama, stars Duplass and Paulson as two former high school sweethearts. They return to their tiny California hometown and meet by chance, reflecting on their shared past through the lens of their differently dissatisfied presents.
