Indiecan Entertainment presents the intensely provocative revenge thriller, Drowning, starring Laura Tremblay and Mark Nutall. Writer/director Pasquale Marco Veltri explores the physical and mental consequences of abuse through a vengeful anti-heroine.
Anna (Laura Tremblay) is a prostitute who has been abused, exploited and manipulated since childhood. Disconnected from her emotions and the sympathetic people around her, Anna accepts that she must take control of her own life, empower herself and learn to live her life on her own terms. Returning to the place where her nightmare began, her childhood home, Anna faces off against her enablers, her abusers, and her own demons.
Here are 5 reasons why you should watch Drowning:
5) Laura Tremblay!
Delivering a knockout performance, Laura Tremblay examines how conflicted and tortured her flawed character, Anna, really is. Anna (Tremblay) wants out from the seedy and exploitative underbelly of crime. Audiences will see her struggle and fail living a normal life. During her character arc, viewers will witness how Anna snaps and has to practice using a firearm, before confronting her abusers.
4) Mark Nutall!
Mark Nutall is quite menacing as the manipulative and cynical Marcus. In a commanding performance, Nutall captures how Marcus has a mental and physical hold on the prostitutes in his domain. It’s quite interesting to watch the combative scenes between Marcus (Nutall) and Anna.
3) Pardeep Bassi!
Evoking such deep sadness, Pardeep Bassi amazingly gives such a sympathetic portrayal of Priya. Bassi exudes such charismatic energy when she shares the screen with Tremblay.
2) The Direction!
The cinematography by Albert Rudnicki is crisp and edgy towards the graphic violence. Notice how the camera doesn’t flinch and focuses on the shocking headshot when Laura pulls out her gun and fires. Writer/director Pasquale Marco Veltri aims for those sequences to be skin-pricking when Anna takes on her vengeance streak.
1) A Slick Thriller!
A slick psychological drama, Drowning takes the revenge genre to a whole new level. With a fantastic lead performance, Drowning will keep audiences engaged with its intense dramatic tension.
Drowning will be available February 25, 2020 on VOD.
