LOVE, OBSESSION AND MURDER…CAUGHT ON TAPE
ON JANUARY 2, STARZ HOME ENTERTAINMENT IS PROUD TO RELEASE A MODERN DAY “BONNIE AND CLYDE” ON DVD
JIMMY AND JUDY
BURBANK, CA –Anchor Bay Entertainment is proud to release the adrenaline-pumped wild ride - JIMMY AND JUDY – available on DVD on Jan. 2, 2008 (prebook Nov. 30, 2007). A cross between Natural Born Killers and Blair Witch Project, JIMMY AND JUDY is destined to become a cult classic.
A true independent film full of shocking and oftentimes uncomfortable material, the movie made a splash at film festivals for its raw and brave subject matter that all boils down to two kids who are crazy about each other – played by real-life husband and wife, Edward Furlong (“CSI NY,” Terminator 2: Judgment Day) and Rachel Bella (The Ring). JIMMY AND JUDY was co-written, co-directed and co-produced by both Randall K. Rubin and Jon Schroder and produced by Ed Sanders (Dirt Merchant, Role of a Lifetime) and Gregory Scanlan (Going Greek, Role of a Lifetime). Available for $26.97, the DVD will offer great bonus features including deleted and extended scenes, unrated and rated trailers, and audio commentary with Rubin, Schroder and cinematographer Ben Kufrin.
JIMMY AND JUDY has won multiple awards including Best Feature at the San Francisco Independent Film Festival, and the Myspace.com Award at the Newport Beach Film Festival. Critics also have great things to say about the film. The Daily Californian said, “In a word, [Jimmy and Judy] is ballsy. Not many indie films making claims for edginess have pulled off this sort of material with such honesty,” and also said, “a cogent plot, raw, fearless script, and superb casting.” Skratch Magazine also said, “Jimmy and Judy is the most beautifully messed-up homage to love and devotion I have witnessed.”
The ultimate teen road movie, JIMMY AND JUDY follows a pair of renegade outsiders as they travel across an American landscape dotted with hypocrisy, materialism, drugs and violence. A modern day Bonnie & Clyde, the film traces the journey of social misfits Jimmy (Furlong) and Judy (Bella), spirited young lovers who leave their comfortably numb suburban community in search of a better life in rural Kentucky. The film is a provocative and voyeuristic look at a young couple’s attempt to break out of the mold and the price they must pay to do so. The film also stars William Sadler (The Green Mile, The Shawshank Redemption) as the very memorable Uncle Rodney and James Eckhouse who stars as Jimmy’s Dad in a role you’d never expect from the man who played the always proper Brandon’s dad on “Beverly Hills 90210.”
