A film about family dysfunction and grief The Loved Ones was recently shown at the American Film Market to much praise. A Darclight Films production and winner of the Cadillac People's Choice award at the Toronto Film Festival The Loved Ones is a thriller to look forward to. A release date is likely to be announced shortly since production has now wrapped, but the full cast details are available until more info on The Loved Ones filters this way.
A synopsis for The Loved Ones here:
"Brent (Xavier Samuel) has never really recovered from the night of his car crash. It's the crash that killed his father, the crash that he was responsible for, and his only solace is his loving girlfriend Holly (Victoria Thaine).
But there's another girl who yearns to comfort Brent, the quietest girl in school, Lola (Robin McLeavy). Just when Brent thought his life couldn't get any worse, Brent turns down Lola's invitation to the school prom and enters a nightmare beyond imagining.
Just hours before the dance, Brent is abducted and taken to Lola's home by her adoring, demented Daddy (John Brumpton) who's determined to make his lovelorn princess's dream come true, her own private prom night with her dream date.
As the night wears on Brent discovers that Lola's feelings for him aren't the only thing she's been keeping a secret, and although beaten and broken, he must summon every ounce of will he possesses if he is to survive, escape, and prevent Lola and her father from extending her revenge to those he loves most...(AFM)"
