Red White & Blue, is the new intense film by acclaimed director Simon Rumley (The Living and the Dead), which was shot in Austin, Texas. The movie is a collaboration between the multi-award-winning Rumley and Austin’s Tim League (founder of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas and co-director of Fantastic Fest with aintitcool.com’s Harry Knowles), who is executive producer.
Red White & Blue is a “slacker revenge movie” set in contemporary Austin, starring award winning actor Noah Taylor (Shine, Alice in Wonderland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Vanilla Sky, The Year My Voice Broke, four-time winner of the Film Critic’s Circle of Australia Best Actor Award.), Amanda Fuller (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Bones, Women’s Murder Club) and award winning Marc Senter (Screamfest 2006 Best Actor Award for The Lost, Cabin Fever 2).
In Rumley’s tightly woven, darkly emotional tale, the lives of three young people – Erica, Franki and Nate – intertwine in a fateful, tragic way and head down a rocky and violent road to heart-rending oblivion.
An unashamedly tough and uncompromising movie, Red White & Blue is a fearlessly frank, gut-wrenching romance and a merciless exploration of the futility of violence. Like Rumley’s The Living and the Dead before it, the movie – with its casual nudity and scenes of extreme violence – is no doubt destined for controversy.
