PRESS RELEASE: Freestyle Digital Media Acquires Dramatic Feature "Range Roads" for December Release
Dramatic Feature Sets Digital Debut on U.S. VOD Platforms December 14th
RANGE ROADS tells the story
of television actor Frankie King, who returns to her hometown in rural Canada after her parents are killed in a sudden car accident. When her parents are killed in a sudden car accident, TV actor Frankie King returns to her hometown in rural Alberta to face this tragedy after being estranged from her family for 20 years. As she struggles to reconnect with her truculent brother, Grayson, old wounds are re-opened and family secrets uncovered. RANGE ROADS is an intimate story of grief, longing, and forgiveness, that explores the painful and beautiful complexities of what it means to be a family.
Written and directed by Kyle Thomas, RANGE ROADS was produced by Thomas and Sara Corry. The ensemble cast of RANGE ROADS includes Alana Hawley Purvis (‘Frankie’), Joe Perry (‘Grayson’), Chad Brownlee (‘Bruce’), and Nicole de Boer (‘Suzanne’).
RANGE ROADS is a very personal film for me, and I was fortunate to be able to undergo a long development process with the two lead performers to create Frankie and Grayson,” said filmmaker Kyle Thomas. “I had a lot of existential questions at the time that I was writing it, around death, purpose, identity, and family. At its core RANGE ROADS is about self-acceptance. It’s about the people and places we are tethered to, for better or worse, and how in the face of tragedy, loss and conflict, it is possible to heal past wounds and find a better road forward.”
Freestyle Digital Media negotiated the deal to acquire RANGE ROADS with Glen Reynolds of Circus Road Films.
