As described by the press release: "'Blue Caprice' is a haunting psychological thriller about an abandoned boy (Richmond) lured to America into the shadows of a dangerous father figure (Washington).  Inspired by true events, the film investigates the notorious  and horrific Beltway sniper attacks from the point of view of the two killers, whose distorted father-son relationship facilitated their long and bloody journey across America."

Jonathan Sehring, President of Sundance Selects/IFC Films, said in a statement: “Alexandre Moors has made one of the most distinct and haunting American independent films of the year featuring unforgettable performances by Isaiah Washington and Tequan Richmond.  We're thrilled to be able to release this and look forward to workingwith the producers and Cinetic to make this a big success.”
 
Moors added: "I couldn't be more proud to be joining the Sundance Selects family.  Their passion has been overwhelming and we look forward to collaborating with their entire team to share the film with audiences across the country. The company is second to none in distributing the best cinema from around the world and I am honored BLUE CAPRICE has found such an ideal home." 

The deal for the film was negotiated by Arianna Bocco, Senior Vice President of Acquisitions & Productions and Jeff Deutchman, Director of Acquisitions & Productions, both for Sundance Selects/IFC Films; and John Sloss and Dana O’Keefe at Cinetic on behalf of the filmmakers.  Gray Krauss Stratford Des Rochers LLP provided additional legal counsel for the filmmakers.
 
Sundance Selects is a sister label to IFC Films and IFC Midnight, and is owned and operated by AMC Networks Inc.
