Carrie Preston’s new comedy has a supernatural edge….would you expect anything different?
Ever been in a relationship and you had the feeling that your partner was holding something back from you? If you had the chance to give them a truth serum would you do it? Somewhere in Suburbia, on Halloween (of course) two couples are given the chance to find out some interesting and perhaps unpleasant truths if someone dares to pick up and drink that glad of Peruvian wine that’s been brewed from the toxic skins of blue dart tree frogs.
The couples: Claire (Carrie Preston), Ridley (Bernard White-The Matrix: Reloaded), Lauren (Heather Raffo) and Phil (Brian Hutchison—Person of Interest), sit around in their Halloween costumes wondering what would happen if someone drank that glass of wine. At times funny, brutally honest and touching, Vino Veritas is wild ride on a crazy night.
Vino Veritas is director Sarah Knight’s first narrative feature debut. She is currently developing the romantic drama, In the Land of Fire & Ice, with writer, David MacGregor, to star Academy Award nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo. Her project, Shady Creek, was a finalist for the 2008 Sundance Creative Producing Initiative and Film Independent Fast Track programs. Her 35mm short, Qiana (director, screenwriter, producer), premiered at Angelika 57 in Manhattan and won acclaim at several film fests as did her first 35 mm short, Abstinence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder (director, writer, co-producer). Other films include the internet cult hit, Survivor in da 'Hood (director, co-writer).
