AN INVITATION TO REVEL IN UGLY STORIES

AMONGST THE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE

 

BURNING PALMS

 

The Heat comes to DVD and Blu-ray™ May 24, 2011

 

Chatsworth, CA – Los Angeles. A city dedicated to beauty. Committed to the health of body and mind. Consumed with a wish to defeat age. The City of Angels. But...below this smooth surface writhes a web of corruption that intertwines both desire and perversity.   On May 24, Image Entertainment releases Burning Palms, an anthology of dark yet comic stories so decadent they could only be worthy of Los Angeles. Written and directed by Christopher B. Landon (Dirty Sexy Money, Disturbia, Paranormal Activity 2), Burning Palms will be available on DVD for an SRP of $27.97 and on Blu-ray™ for an SRP of $29.97. Pre-book is April 26.

 

Burning Palms is a study of five lives: all different, yet all strangely similar. A father's (Dylan McDermott, In the Line of Fire) relationship with his precocious teenage daughter (Emily Meade, “Boardwalk Empire”) is too close for comfort for his fiancée. A woman (Jamie Chung, I Pronounce You Chuck and Larry) becomes undone by her boyfriend's kinky bedroom request. A gay couple (Peter Macdissi, SAG® winner, “Six Feet Under” and Anson Mount, “Law and Order”) brings home the ultimate lifestyle accessory: an African child. A young boy involves his brothers in disturbing games. A lonely woman (Zoe Saldana, Avatar) confronts her attacker (Nick Stahl, “Carnivale,” Sin City) with a bizarre request.  

 

Burning Palms is a collection of separate stories united in cynicism, darkness and despair. The wit is sardonic, the humor is macabre…but their individual quests for happiness are pure L.A!
