This Thanksgiving, a teen-aged girl yearns to reinvent herself and find something she can be thankful for in the face of poverty in EVERGREEN, debuting on DVD from IndiePix® Films on November 10. Set in the picturesque Pacific Northwest and starring Emmy®-award winning actress Mary Kay Place (Julie & Julia, “Big Love”), Oscar® nominee Bruce Davison (Longtime Companion, X-Men), Cara Seymour (Adaptation, Gangs of New York) and newcomer Abbie Land, the acclaimed festival favorite — an Official Selection at the Seattle, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Sao Paulo and Stockholm International Film Festivals — arrives in-stores for $24.95srp.
Fourteen year old Henrietta – Henri for short – longs for everything she doesn’t have. Looking down a road that turns bad instead of right, Henri (Land) and her mother Kate (Seymour) are forced to move in with her grandmother (Lynn Cohen) in a leaking shack on the edge of town. While hell bent on finding a way out, Henri meets the popular and handsome Chat Turly (Noah Fleiss, Brick, “Taking Chance”), and becomes infatuated with his seemingly ideal wealthy family and mother, Susan (Place). Henri overlooks some of their curious behavior as she tries desperately to become a part of the family. Will Henri recognize the severe flaws in Chat’s home life and come to appreciate her own family?
Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival, EVERGREEN marks Enid Zentelis’ (Director & Writer) feature film directorial debut. The film opened in 2004 to115 theaters and received national attention when a first-of-its-kind deal was inked with AMC Theaters, marking the first time a major exhibitor pacted directly with a filmmaker; it was also the first feature to be distributed solely via satellite.
