Heading to on demand in January is the fast paced thriller DETOUR. The Christopher Smith feature follows a law student hell bent on unraveling the truth behind an accident that killed his mother. The engaging looking trailer was released last week and we have it for you to see ahead. Look for DETOUR to hit on demand everywhere on January 20th.
Harper (Tye Sheridan), a seemingly naive law student, obsesses over the idea that his shifty stepfather was involved in the devastating car crash that left his mother hospitalized and comatose. He drowns his suspicions in whiskey until he finds himself suddenly engrossed in conversation with volatile grifter Johnny (Emory Cohen) and his stripper companion, Cherry (Bel Powley). As daylight breaks and the haziness of promises made becomes clearer, how will Harper handle the repercussions (not to mention the violent duo—on his doorstep)? Employing a split-narrative structure to tell this tale of deception and murder, Christopher Smith takes his audience on a thrill ride full of hairpin turns, where it’s never quite clear what or who can be trusted.
DETOUR is directed by Christopher Smith and stars Tye Sheridan, Bel Powley, Emory Cohen and Stephen Moyer.
