On the heels of the first official trailer (see above) Lost River, which will be hitting limited theaters and digital HD on April 10.
The film is described as a dark fairy tale about love, family and the fight for survival in the face of danger, centering on Billy (Christina Hendricks), a single mother of two, living in the virtually abandoned city of Lost River. She is led into a macabre underworld in her quest to save her childhood home and hold her family together. Her teenage son Bones (Iain De Casestecker) discovers a mystery about the origins of Lost River that triggers his curiosity and sets into motion an unexpected journey that will test his limits and the limits of those he loves.
Ben Mendelsohn, Eva Mendes, Saoirse Ronan and Matt Smith co-star in the film with songs written for the film by Johnny Jewel‘s groups Chromatics, Glass Candy and Desire. The soundtrack will be hitting shelves on April 10 as well while the film will have its North American premiere at the SXSW Film Festival.
“I am excited that Lost River is being released by Warner Bros. and having its North American premiere at SXSW,” Gosling said in a press release. “It’s a small specialty film, so for me, this day-and-date theatrical and digital release plan provides the best of both worlds. It allows those who are interested in seeing my film in a theatre to do so without excluding the majority of people who don’t have access to a specialty cinema. VOD is giving a new life to independent cinema and I’m very excited to have the opportunity to showcase the wonderful work of my cast and crew on such a broad platform.”
