Thursday 4th April 2013
Academy Award® nominee Andy Garcia (Best Supporting Actor, Godfather: Part IiI, 1991), Golden Globe® nominee Eva Longoria (Best Actress in a Musical/Comedy, Desperate Housewives, 2006) and Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker (Best Actor, The Last King of Scotland, 2007), star in the action-packed environmental thriller A Dark Truth, available on DVD 13th May 2013 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
Garcia is the thinking man's action hero in this intense and thought-provoking tale. The film follows Jack (Garcia), a former CIA agent-turned-political talk show host who descends into the treacherous jungles of Ecuador to rescue a team of environmental activists (Whitaker and Longoria) caught up in the criminal corporate cover-up of a violent local massacre.
Written and directed by Damian Lee (Sacrifice), winner of the 2012 Best Director Award at the Boston Film Festival for his work on the film, A Dark Truth is a timely thriller about the ever-increasing depletion of earth's natural resource of water and the heroic men and women fighting to protect it. Co-starring Kim Coates (Resident Evil: Afterlife) and Deborah Kara Unger (The Game), the film is packed with action sequences and nail-biting suspense.
Exclusive to the DVD is "Behind the Truth", a behind-the-scenes featurette with cast and crew as they share inspirations and experiences making the film.
In the jungles of Ecuador, blood taints the waters. A multinational conglomerate's unholy alliance with a bloodthirsty military regime has resulted in a massacre. Only the rebel Francisco Franco (Forest Whitaker, Repo Men) and his determined wife Mia (Eva Longoria, TV's Desperate Housewives) can prove the truth. To settle a personal debt, former CIA agent Jack Begosian (Andy Garcia, Ocean's Thirteen) takes on the freelance assignment to rescue Francisco and risks everything in a brutal battle to expose the cover-up.
A Dark Truth is a co-production between Rollercoaster Entertainment and Vortex Words + Pictures. It was produced by Gary Howsam (Casino Jack) and Bill Marks (Casino Jack). Executive producers are Jeff Sackman (American Psycho), Andy Garcia (City Island) and Kim Coates (Sacrifice).
