Indiewire has exclusively learned that digital entertainment curator FilmBuff will release the family drama “Cold Turkey” in theaters and on VOD on November 15. We’re also pleased to share the poster for the film, which next plays at the Woodstock Film Festival, where star Peter Bogdanovich will receive the honorary Maverick Lifetime Achievement Award.
Directed by first-time helmer Will Slocombe, the film centers the drama that unfolds over Thanksgiving when the Turner clan is surprised by a visit from an estranged family member. Bogdanovich plays the patriarch of the family, Poppy.
‘We are thrilled to be partnering with FilmBuff on ‘Cold Turkey,'” said Slocombe. “They are such a smart, creative and energetic company. We can’t wait to spend Thanksgiving with them.”
“‘Cold Turkey’ is the perfect holiday indie,” added FilmBuff’s Head of Content Partnerships, Steven Beckman. “With terrific performances and dynamic, engaging and hilarious characters, the film will most certainly bring families together this Thanksgiving.”
FilmBuff will release “Cold Turkey” in theaters in New York and LA, expanding to other markets as well as across all leading Video On Demand platforms in the U.S. and Canada on November 15 including iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Cable Movies On Demand, Google Play, Xbox Video, Sony Playstation and Vudu.
