How far would you go to get ahead in the City of Angels? On behalf of IFC, we are pleased to share the new poster for their provocative and highly anticipated film THE CANYONS, starring Lindsay Lohan and James Deen. 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).
Lindsay Lohan brings Tara (a character carefully crafted by Bret Easton Ellis) to life a with a great level of authenticity. When speaking with MTV News, the legendary writer stated, “She was probably going through something close to Tara, which was kind of like being trapped. I think she related that to Tara, and that’s why that performance feels very lived in, it feels very real.”
The VOD event of the summer begins on August 2nd! THE CANYONS will also be available to watch on digital outlets (including iTunes and SundanceNow) and in select theaters next Friday.
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.
