The trailer has arrived for the most controversial movie of the summer! IFC’s provocative and highly anticipated THE CANYONS, starring Lindsay Lohan and James Deen, is a must see VOD film event! The film is directed by Paul Schrader (writer of Taxi Driver and writer/director of American Gigolo) and written by Bret Easton Ellis (author of American Psycho and Less Than Zero).
James Deen and Lindsay Lohan and star as Christian and Tara – a young LA trust-fund kid with casual ties to moviemaking and his girlfriend, a once aspiring actress/model-turned-plaything. When Christian learns of a secret affair between Tara and the lead of his film (Nolan Gerard Funk), he spirals out of control and his cruel mind games escalate into an act of bloody violence.
Official Synopsis: While calculating young movie producer Christian (Deen) makes films to keep his trust fund intact, his actress girlfriend, Tara (Lohan), hides an affair with an actor from her past. But Christian becomes aware of her infidelity, which leads the young Angelenos into a violent, sexually-charged tour through the dark side of human nature.
An official selection of the Venice Film Festival, THE CANYONS will be available to watch in select theaters, on cable VOD and digital outlets beginning August 2nd.
