It’s been quite the productive fall for Broken Glass Pictures. After acquiring distribution rights to Tim McCann’s bullying psycho-drama “White Rabbit” and Larry Clark’s award-winning “Mafia Girl,” the Philadelphia-based company has landed North American rights to Prince Bagdasarian’s crime-thriller “Abstraction.”
Starring Eric Roberts (who has a brief but integral role in Paul Thomas Anderson’s upcoming “Inherent Vice”) opposite Ken Davitian (“Borat”), Korrina Rico (“Horrible Bosses 2”), Natalie Victoria (“DeadHeads”) and Hunter Ives, “Abstraction” follows two criminals engaging in grand thefts in order to make ends meet. When a robbery goes wrong, the friends are forced to put their criminal activity behind them, which proves more tough then they thought as economic hardships build. The solution to their problems ends up being one final robbery: the heist of a half a million dollar painting.
“‘Abstraction’ has been well received by festival audiences and industry professionals alike,” said director Prince Bagdasarian. “We’re truly excited now to be working with Breaking Glass Pictures in bringing our multi-award winning film to a wider audience.”
Broken Glass Pictures will release the film on DVD and VOD January 2014.
