[Los Angeles, CA – January 11, 2022] While everyone is sheltering at home again, VOD fans can add another new film to their watch list this winter. The award-winning spiritual thriller film, The Reunion, which has been garnering awards at film festivals since last summer, will be available to the public on February 1st on various VOD platforms in North America.
The Reunion first premiered at the 2021 Julien Dubuque International Film Festival in Iowa and has been presented at three other film festivals in New York. The film has garnered four awards so far, including Best Picture and Best Actor at the SOHO International Film Festival as well as Best Feature Film and Best Director at the Nyack Film Festival last fall. Nyack Film Festival Director Richard Quinn says that the film “digs deeply into the center of psychological and philosophical tension as a spiritual thriller.”
The Reunion is based on the real-life traumatic childhood experience of Dave Rosenberg, the film’s writer and producer who also stars as the protagonist, Ricky Reilly. Ricky, a former actor who is seeking spiritual fulfillment, suddenly has his life turned upside down when he runs into his childhood bully. Seeing his old nemesis reawakens memories and emotions that compel Ricky to finally face his greatest fear in order to discover a new definition of manhood.
The film also stars Andrea Modica, Dinh James Doan and Cara Ronzetti, with special appearances by Drama Desk Award-winning actor Austin Pendleton and Actor/Comedian Jim Norton.
It was previously announced that The Reunion’s official public premiere will be held in LA at the Laemmle Theatre in Glendale, CA (located on 207 N. Maryland Ave.) on Friday, Jan 28th at 10 pm.
We first learned about The Reunion at last year’s Soho Film Festival. Look for our upcoming interview with writer/producer and lead actor, Dave Rosenberg coming to the podcast next month.
