“You have pushed a desperate man a little too far here.” RLJE Films has released the official trailer for a dark crime thriller titled South of Heaven, directed by Israeli filmmaker Aharon Keshales (of Rabies and Big Bad Wolves). This film is arriving on VOD in October for anyone interested in checking it out, despite not hitting any festivals or otherwise. Convicted felon Jimmy gets early parole after serving twelve years for armed robbery. Upon his release, he vows to give Annie, his childhood love, now dying from cancer, the best last year of her life – but unfortunately it’s just not that simple. South of Heaven stars Jason Sudeikis, Evangeline Lilly, Mike Colter, and Shea Whigham. A very strange mix of vibes in this, with Sudeikis playing such a warm, friendly person and everyone else so cold and vicious. Hard to tell if it’s worth a watch.
Here’s the official trailer (+ poster) for Aharon Keshales’ South of Heaven, direct from YouTube:
