News Movies MADMAN

This year has already been incredible for Madman releases, and September promises to be even better. With a focus on how truth and tragedy can influence culture, September 2011’s DVDs ranges from drama to television to comedy to heartache. We’ve picked the best of the bunch for you here below.

Snowtown

Disenfranchised  teen, Jamie Vlassakis, lives with his mother and two younger brothers in a small, low socioeconomic housing community in Adelaide’s northern suburbs.  Longing for an escape from the ugliness and the malaise that surrounds him, when Jamie is introduced to his mother’s charismatic new boyfriend, John Bunting, a friendship immediately begins to blossom.

As John assumes the father-figure role that the family so desperately needs, he soon becomes a mentor to Jamie, indoctrinating him into a world of righteousness, bigotry and malice that will escalate into the events that will become Australia’s most notorious serial killings.

Release date: 21st September 2011

Heartbeats

Highly regarded French-Canadian filmmaker Xavier Dolan has achieved an insightful and unique voice in his first two films I KILLED MY MOTHER andHEARTBEATS. Beautifully stylish and imbued with a youthful freshness, they mark the arrival of an impressive and exciting new talent.

Loosely based on his own challenges coming out, Dolan’s I KILLED MY MOTHER focuses on the experiences of protagonist Hubert as he drifts through the mysteries of adolescence – artistic discoveries, illicit experiences, the opening-up to friendship, and ostracism.

HEARTBEATS is the story of best friends Francis and Marie, who seem to have it all: good looks, youth and style in abundance. But one night they both fall for the gorgeous Nicholas, and soon find themselves declaring war on one another for Nicholas’ love, threatening the friendship they once considered indestructible.

Release date: 31st August 2011

The Missing Person

Starring Academy Award-nominee Michael Shannon, THE MISSING PERSON is a classic hard-boiled film noir, full of straight-talkin’ PIs, scotch-swillin’ crooks and loose and lethal femme fatales.

Shannon is John Rosow, a private detective hired to tail Harold Fullmer, on a train from Chicago to Los Angeles. Persuaded by a large reward, Rosow is charged with bringing Harold back to his wife in New York City against his will. Ultimately Rosow must confront whether the decision to return Harold to a life that no longer exists is the right one.
