Moments of hopelessness and despair can often lead people to engage in brazen acts in order to survive. That’s certainly the case for the characters in the new thriller, ‘Acts of Desperation,’ which Gravitas Ventures is set to release this Tuesday, March 12.
In honor of the film’s upcoming distribution, ShockYa is premiering an exclusive clip from ‘Acts of Desperation.’ In the clip, actress Dee Dee Sorvino’s character, Anna, is working as a bank teller. She’s approached by a man who’s dressed in a disguise, and demands that she give him money. If she doesn’t comply with his request, he’ll unleash his sinister plan of retaliation.
In addition to Sorvino, the drama stars Paul Sorvino (‘Goodfellas’), Jason Gedrick (‘Backdraft,’ ‘Bosch’), Kira Reed Lorsch (‘The Bay’), Tim DeZarn (‘The Cabin in the Woods’), Treva Etienne (‘Black Hawk Down’), Erin O’Brien (‘Killing Joan’), Neraida Bega (‘Christmas Crime Story’), Chris Coppola (‘Ray Donovan’) and Vince Lozano (‘Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl’). ‘Acts of Desperation’ was directed by Richard Friedman, and written by Nathan Illsley.
The following synopsis for ‘Acts of Desperation’ has been released by Gravitas Ventures:
A desperate cop on the edge is obsessed over the fact that his beautiful but frantic wife is having an affair. At the same time, he tracks a desperately shrewd bank robber who is falling in love with a desperately obsessed woman whose life he just saved from suicide. As if that’s not enough, he is also being blackmailed by two desperately unhinged street criminals who will stop at nothing to get their money. Time is running out for all of them as their worlds collide.
