Notorious writer Bret Easton Ellis (“American Psycho”) and acclaimed director Paul Schrader (writer of “Taxi Driver” and director of “American Gigolo”) join forces for this explicitly erotic thriller about youth, glamour, sex and surveillance. Manipulative and scheming young movie producer Christian (adult film star James Deen) makes films to keep his trust fund intact, while his actress girlfriend and bored plaything, Tara (Lindsay Lohan), hides a passionate affair with an actor from her past. When Christian becomes aware of Tara's infidelity, the young Angelenos are thrust into a violent, sexually-charged tour through the dark side of human nature.
“The Canyons” is a contemporary LA noir film about the dangers of sexual obsession and ambition, both personally and professionally. One chance encounter among a group of people in their twenties sets in motion a series of events, resulting in deceit, paranoia, cruel mind games and violence.
From Crystalsky Multimedia, “The Canyons” opens very soon this August 13 in cinemas nationwide.
