Emile Hirsch (Lone Survivor) and Stephen Dorff (The Iceman) star in the “real and heartbreaking” film The Motel Life, coming to Blu-ray and DVD June 3rd from Cinedigm. Co-starring screen and music legend Kris Kristofferson and Dakota Fanning (The Runaways), the drama is based on the acclaimed debut novel by Willy Vlautin. The Motel Life also features animation by award-winning animator Mike Smith. Special features in the home entertainment release include The Motel Life featurette, an illustration gallery and trailer. The Motel Life is the directorial debut of brothers Alan and Gabe Polsky.
This award-winning film is a searing and profound examination of brotherhood set in the timeless Sierra Nevadan frontier. Frank (Emile Hirsch) and Jerry Lee (Stephen Dorff) are brothers who get by on telling fantastic stories and creating rich illustrations. When Jerry Lee is involved in a hit-and-run accident, the brothers are forced across the state to the home of Frank’s old flame, Annie (Dakota Fanning). While they seem safe from the law, Jerry Lee’s instability and all-consuming guilt render their future increasingly uncertain.
This movie is great. Be sure to have some tissues and be flooded with emotions!
