Blue Caprice trailer looks powerful
There are some trailers that I've been sitting on for a while now and Blue Caprice is definitely one of them. It's based, and so far I don't know how "based" it is, on the true story of the man and boy who carried out a series of murders using a sniper rifle around Washington D.C. in late 2002. They were nicknamed the Beltway sniper attacks.
Now the story comes to film and leads with Isaiah Washington and Tequan Richmond with support from Tim Blake Nelson, Joey Lauren Adams, Leo Fitzpatrick and more. The film isn't adapted from any investigative novel, as many of these true life films are, but is written directly for the screen and looks at the story of the very strange father and son relationship between the two killers.
Here's the full blurb for Blue Caprice:
Inspired by true events, Blue Caprice investigates the notorious and horrific Beltway sniper attacks from the point of view of the two perpetrators, whose distorted father-son relationship facilitated their long and bloody journey across America. Marked by captivating performances by Isaiah Washington and Tequan Richmond, lyrical camerawork, and a unique and bold structure, BLUE CAPRICE documents the mechanisms that lead its subjects to embrace physical violence. BLUE CAPRICE paints a riveting portrait of 21st-century America and a haunting depiction of two cold-blooded killers that endures long after the lights come up.
The film looks set to be a powerful one and it could mark a strong moment in Isaiah Washington's film career, it's definitely far from his best known roles that's for sure, but he has the ability the question will be is this the role?
One thing's for sure this will be a powerful film for many, not just those who were affected by the attacks but for the audience as a whole, well judging by the trailer anyway.
