Academy Award winner Tatum O’Neal shows off her acting prowess once again in “Sweet Lorraine,” which will be available on VOD April 23. The Garden Thieves Pictures project is directed by Christopher C. Frieri and also stars Steven Bauer (“Ray Donovan,” “Scarface”), Peter Greene (“Pulp Fiction”) and Julianne Michelle (“Apartment 1303”).

O’Neal plays Lorraine, a woman who will go to great lengths to see her husband become the mayor of their town. However, the journey leads her back into her old life.

“Lorraine Beebie, the perfect minister’s wife in suburban New Jersey, has one goal: to see her husband as the mayor of the small town in which she has rebuilt her life. Lorraine’s quest comes head to head with her seedy and sultry past in New York City, a past that includes her ex-lover, the current mayor. Lorraine’s secrets, along with the many others hidden behind white picket fences, threaten to surface throughout the campaign. The film confronts social issues head on and makes satirical commentary on the gender divide using dark humor and boxing.”

The trailer is below the post, as is the DVD art, both of which give a good sense at the kind of offbeat and dark film you’re in store for. Will this be one that you’ll put in your collection? Give your opinions in the comments section below!
