Oscar Nominee Patricia Arquette features in ELECTRIC SLIDE, in cinemas April 3
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA : Tristan Patterson’s vivacious, music-fueled crime caper Electric Slide, starring Jim Sturgess, Isabel Lucas, and Oscar Nominee Patricia Arquette, will be released in US theatres and on VOD April 3, distributor Paragon Releasing announced today.
Sturgess (Across the Universe, 21, One Day) plays Eddie Dodson, a Melrose Avenue antiques dealer who decided to become a bank robber. Dodson drove to the banks in a black ’63 Ford Galaxy LTD. He dressed up like an elegant criminal. He made mix tapes to listen to on his getaways. And in only nine months, Eddie robbed 64 banks – more than anyone has robbed before or since.
Taking its aesthetic cues from Eddie Dodson and the unique moment he occupied in L.A.’s countercultural history, director Tristan Patterson has forgone the style of straight‐ahead biopics to create a New Wave dream of a romantic outlaw seeking self‐reinvention and immortality in paradise.
Isabel Lucas (The Pacific, The Water Diviner), Patricia Arquette (Boyhood, CSI : Cyber), Christopher Lambert (Southland Tales), Chloë Sevigny (Bloodline, Big Love), Vinessa Shaw (After the Fall), and John Doe co-star.
A Polaroid snapshot of 1983 Los Angeles and a love letter to a man who decided to quit reality to live full‐time in the Hollywood movie of his dreams, the film features an appropriate and electric mix of tunes from the likes of Iggy Pop, Magazine and the Psychedelic Furs.
