U.S. One-Sheet, Release Date for American Mary

XLrator has announced a May 31st limited theatrical release date for American Mary, starring Katharine Isabelle.  In addition to this, the company has revealed the U.S. one-sheet which you can find inside.

Directed by Jen and Sylvia Soska, the film is the story of a medical student named Mary who is growing increasingly broke and disenchanted with medical school and the established doctors she once idolized. The allure of easy money sends a desperate Mary through the messy world of underground surgeries which leaves more marks on her than the so-called freakish clientele. Appearances are everything.
