The 10 Indies to Watch on VOD This February

"Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me"

To help you sift through an endless VOD selection, we've compiled a list of 10 new indies coming to VOD this month. Click on the films' titles to learn more. 

"Adult World" (February 14)

Soctt Coffey's feature premiered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival. A girl fresh out of college (Emma Roberts) believes she's destined to be the next big poet, but it all seems to be heading nowhere as she lives with her parents and takes a job at the local sex shop. In an effort to launch into her ideal life, she pursues a mentorship with a published and reclusive writer (John Cusack). 

Where to watch: iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, YouTube, Playstation, XBOX, Vudu, Time Warner


"Alan Partridge" (February 27)

Steve Coogan's longtime kooky character has come from spoof show to TV to film. In "Alan Partridge," the titular Alan tries to revive his quasi-successful career while trying not to get killed after violent events ensue at North Norfolk Digital Radio.

"The Art of the Steal" (February 7)

"The Art Of The Steal" brings together the ragtag crew of Kurt Russell, Jay Baruchel, Matt Dillon and more for a heist comedy that premiered late last year at the Toronto International Film Festival. The action-comedy centers on Crunch Calhoun (Russell), a third rate motorcycle daredevil and semi-reformed art thief, who agrees to get back into the con game and pull off just one more big time score with his untrustworthy brother Nicky (Dillon).

"Barefoot" (February 21)

Andrew Fleming's film starring Evan Rachel Wood premiered at the Santa Barbara Film Fest just this month on February 2nd. The rom com follows the black sheep of a well-to-do family as he invites a mental patient (also shoeless eccentric) home as his date for his brother's wedding. She surprises him and everyone else when she stands out as charming, stark, and warm. 

Where to watch: iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, YouTube, Playstation, XBOX, Vudu, Time Warner


"Cheap Thrills" (February 21)

Bets, blood, booze, and a big reward are at center stage in E.L. Katz's gnarly thriller. When a floundering family man loses his job and faces debt, he and his friend head to the local bar, where they meet a mysterious couple. After a round of drinks, a series of dares and bets ensue, and each act of twisted humor pushes how far the desperate man is willing to go. Indiewire's Eric Kohn said "Even when it's fairly obvious where things are headed, the sick ride continues to speed forward, arriving at a gloriously absurd final shot that perfectly encapsulates both the ideas and visceral experience of the movie in their entirety."

Where to watch: Comcast, Time Warner


"Dead Dad" (February 4)

A hit on the festival circuit (it picked up the Audience Award at the Tallgrass International Film Festival and played at a slew of others including Woodstock and Florida), "Dead Dad" centers on three estranged siblings who return home to tend to their father's remains following his unexpected death. The problem? Nobody wants to keep the ashes.

Where to watch: Cox, iTunes, Amazon, Xbox, Vudu, Google Play
