Samuel Goldwyn Films and AMBI Group will partner on the domestic release for the anticipated thriller, “Lavender.” Directed by Ed Gass-Donnelly (“The Last Exorcism Part II”) who co-wrote the film with Colin Frizzell (“Resident Evil: Apocalypse”), the film stars Abbie Cornish (“Limitless”), Diego Klattenhoff (TV’s “The Blacklist”), Justin Long (“Live Free or Die Hard”) and Dermot Mulroney (“My Best Friend’s Wedding”).
Samuel Goldwyn and AMBI will release the film exclusively on DISH on Feb. 3, 2017 one month before it hits theaters and VOD on March 3, 2017. “Lavender” is the second collaboration between the two companies, which will release the Simon Aboud film, “This Beautiful Fantastic,” on March 10, 2017.
“Abbie Cornish provides a stellar performance in this psychological thriller,” said Melanie Miller, Executive Vice President of Samuel Goldwyn Films. “With beautiful cinematography and a distinct vision from director Ed Gass-Donnelly, we are proud to distribute “Lavender” in partnership with Ambi Group.”
In “Lavender,” when a photographer (Abbie Cornish) suffers severe memory loss after a traumatic accident, strange clues amongst her photos suggest she may be responsible for the deaths of family members she never knew she had. Justin Long plays a psychiatrist who helps her recover lost memories.
Produced by Dave Valleau (“Capote”) and Ed Gass-Donnelly, “Lavender” was executive produced by Andrea Iervolino (“The Merchant of Venice”), Monika Bacardi (“The Humbling”), Tex Antonucci (“The Entitled”), Emily Alden (“Mountain Men”) and Jennifer Levine (“G.B.F.”).
