The first poster and a batch of photos have been released for Derick Martini‘s Hick. The film, which stars Chloe Moretz and Blake Lively, is based on the fantastic novel by Andrea Portes, who also co-wrote the script with Martini.
Check out the plot summary below.
“Smalltown teenager Luli (Chloe Grace Moretz) escapes to Las Vegas, leaving behind her alcoholic and abusive parents. Armed with her smarts, a pistol and pocket money, she hitchhikes her way west. Along the way, Luli crosses paths with Eddie (Eddie Redmayne), an unstable rebel with questionable motives and Glenda (Blake Lively), a cocaine-snorting drifter on the run. Adapted from the critically acclaimed novel by Andrea Portes, this powerful story pulls you into a provocative world of drugs, seduction and murder.”
Martini, the man behind the successful 2008 Indie film Lymelife, premiered the film last year at The Toronto International Film Festival to mostly poor reviews. Despite that, knowing the source material and taking into account the strong cast, I find it very hard to believe that this film isn’t good. Though it’s been reviewed poorly, I’ll still be seeing it.
Hick stars Chloe Grace Moretz, Blake Lively, Eddie Redmayne, Juliette Lewis, Alec Baldwin, Ray McKinnon and Rory Culkin and will be released on VOD on May 8th, before a limited release on May 11th.
