The Fare, Dread

501 Pictures and Public Displays of Affection, in a partnership with Epic Pictures and Dread, lay down the charm in the irresistibly thrilling, The Fare, starring Brinna Kelly and Gino Anthony Pesi. With a keen eye, director D.C. Hamilton taps right into the heart of the characters and the onscreen chemistry between his two leads. 

When a charming woman named Penny (Brinna Kelly) climbs into his taxi, Harris (Gino Anthony Pesi) finds himself entranced. That is, right up until she disappears from the back seat without a trace. As he desperately tries to make sense of what happened, he resets his meter and is instantly brought back to the moment she first climbed into his cab. He and Penny find themselves trapped in an endlessly looping ride that changes their lives forever.

Here are 5 reasons why you should see The Fare

5) Brinna Kelly!

The Fare

Screenwriter/actress Brinna Kelly finds the heart and humor of her two emotionally weary characters. At its core, Penny (Kelly) and Harris (Pesi) are two lost souls struggling to make a true connection. With such witty banter, Kelly finds ways for viewers to feel for Penny through genuine heartfelt moments. 

4)  Gino Anthony Pesi!

It’s amazing how Brinna Kelly and Gino Anthony Pesi are able to strike up an instant rapport. Though Harris shares a mutual attraction with Penny, he continues to find obstacles to block her. Pesi is able to make his character more compellingly sympathetic when he should be insufferable and narcissistic.  

3) The Taxi!

The one-setting narrative is able to display so much because it’s character-based and performance-driven. Thanks to Hamilton’s editing, what should be repetitive comes across fresh, new, and vibrant. 

2) The Direction!

Director D.C. Hamilton knows that this type of movie only works if the chemistry is there for audiences to see. By letting the cameras roll, viewers became part of Penny (Kelly) and Harris (Pesi)’s romance as the setting becomes more intimate rather than claustrophobic.

1) A Romantic Ride!

With two irresistible leads, The Fare takes viewers on an engaging and fantastical romantic ride. The Blu-Ray contains commentary with director D.C. Hamilton, commentary with star/writer Brinna Kelly, deleted scenes, a gag reel, and two making-of featurettes, Secrets of The Fare and The Look of The Fare
