Cool Indie Pick
From Myriad Pictures, CHARLIE ZONE is a twisting dramatic thriller set against the drug-ravaged streets of one of Canada’s roughest neighborhoods. Avery Paul, a disgraced boxer and ex-convict, is hired to abduct a runaway from a crack house in the city’s notorious “Charlie Zone,” and return her safely to her family. But nothing goes quite as planned and nothing is quite what it seems. What follows is a harrowing ride through the underbelly of a seemingly picture-postcard Canadian city, as two lost people attempt to face the darkness—in their world and themselves—and hopefully find redemption.
On June 4th, Anchor Bay Entertainment releases CHARLIE ZONE on Blu-ray™ and DVD. Winner of four major awards at the 2011 Atlantic Film Festival, the film stars Amanda Crew (Sex Drive, Charlie St. Cloud, The Haunting in Connecticut), Glen Gould (“Cashing In,” “Mohawk Girls”) and Mpho Koaho (Saw III, Four Brothers, Blindness).
