I Melt With You - Preview
Preview by Jack Foley
WHEN life hammers you, get smashed, is the matra of four friends on their annual reunion in I Melt With You, the dark side of a hangover, released on DVD and to Download by Momentum Pictures on August 6, 2012.
From the producers of The Artist and JFK and directed by Mark Pellington (Arlington Road, The Mothman Prophecies) I Melt With You features an outstanding ensemble cast of Hollywood bad boys Thomas Jane (The Mist, The Punisher, Hung), Jeremy Piven (Entourage, Grosse Pointe Blank), Rob Lowe (The West Wing, Wayne’s World, Brothers & Sisters) and Brit Christian McKay (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Me and Orson Welles).
Richard (Jane), Ron (Piven), Jonathan (Lowe) and Tim (McKay) are old college buddies who gather for one week each year in Big Sur to celebrate Tim’s birthday and catch up on each other’s lives.
On the surface, they look like typical men in their forties, with careers, families and responsibilities. But as with most people, there is more to them than meets the eye.
As the week progresses, they go down the rabbit hole of excess: mountains of drugs are consumed to a blaring rock ‘n’ roll soundtrack, parties with much younger women spin out of control.
Exhausted and run ragged, they bare their souls and their reunion takes a much darker turn. When a promise from their past is brought to light, none of their lives will ever be the same.
Best described as Entourage meets The Hangover, I Melt With You features a thunderous and amped-up punk soundtrack including The Specials, Pixies, Adam and the Ants, Sex Pistols, Dead Kennedys and The Clash.
