Greed and hubris is the fabric that spins many stories—just see this year’s Best Picture nominees “The Wolf Of Wall Street” and “American Hustle“—with those two qualities serving as the dark undercurrent of ambition. They make for intriguing stories, and co-writer/director Jay Alaimo has one cooking in the upcoming “Chlorine.”
Starring Vincent D’Onofrio, Kyra Sedgwick, Elisabeth Röhm, Dreama Walker and Tom Sizemore, the story follows Georgie Lent, who pushes her husband Roger into finding a way to invest in the market bubble in the hopes that their family can be saved with the money they are sure to make. When local tennis pro and part-time drug dealer, Pat, comes to Roger for investment advice, Roger sees his opportunity. Torn by the reality that his family could be saved by this dirty money, Roger finds himself staring down the barrel of a moral conundrum. And in this exclusive clip, we see Georgie lured by the prospect of seemingly easy riches while out shopping.
“Chlorine” opens in theaters and On Demand on February 28th. Watch below.
