Debuting at Sundance this year, Mora Stephens’ thriller “Zipper” follows Patrick Wilson as prosecutor Sam Ellis, whose political career becomes scandalous before it even can get started. The film features an impressive cast, including Lena Headey (“Game of Thrones”), Dianna Argon (“Heroes”), Richard Dreyfuss and Ray Winstone.

The official synopsis reads: “Sam Ellis is a man on the rise — a hotshot federal prosecutor on the cusp of a bright political future. But what was meant to be a one-time experience with a high-end escort instead turns into a growing addiction. His moral compass unraveling, his new demon threatens to destroy his life, family and career.”

“Zipper” will be released day and date on August 28. Watch the trailer above.
