DARK, THRILLING "LEOPARD" PREMIERES ON DEMAND THIS MONTH
Dark, Thrilling Leopard premieres On Demand this September
The Night Shift’s Eoin Macken writes, directs and stars in this year’s most unique and thrilling film experience, out this September from Osiris Entertainment
From Eoin Macken, best known as Dr. TC Callahan on the hit NBC medical drama The Night Shift, comes the dark and disturbing Leopard, out this month from Osiris Entertainment.
Paris, Texas meets The Wicker Man in a unique, powerfully-performed thriller about two disconnected brothers ostracised by the small village community surrounding them who reunite when their father dies.
“Beautiful, heartbreaking, dark and yet luminous” (At a Glance Mag), the chilling Leopard features award-worthy performances from Macken (The Night Shift, Merlin, The Tudors), Tom Hopper (Black Sails) and Jack Reynor (Transformers : Age of Extinction). Written and directed by Eoin Macken.
Inspired by Jim Steinback’s East of Eden, Leopard fixes on two separated brothers Tom and Jack, who are cold-shouldered by the Irish village they live in. Jack returns after 5 years with the sudden and unexplained death of their father and the brothers are immediately at odds with one another. Jack’s presence pushing Tom’s loner mentality into a dangerous psychosis and opening an old wound with the locals as to why he originally left. Things take a surreal turn when they find a girl apparently left for dead in the moors and Tom becomes wildly obsessed with looking after her. What follows is beautiful, tragic and bizarre, as the brothers search for a resolution to their past and their relationship to one another in this mesmerizing tale of love, violence and redemption.
Leopard is available On Demand this month from Osiris Entertainment.
