Nobel Son DVD cover art

It’s Nobel Son, which first got my attention because it’s got Alan Rickman where he is not playing an out and out villain. And trust me, he’s a brilliant actor who needs to play comedic roles more often. Check out this trailer:

Here’s the skinnee, for those who weren’t certain from the trailer there:

A venomous tale of familial dysfunction, lust, betrayal and revenge, Nobel Son, a “flashy and eccentric thriller” (Los Angeles Times) arriving on DVD June 9th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Receiving critical acclaim during the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival, Nobel Son follows Barkley Michaelson, a 20 something-year-old in a life rut struggling to finish his Ph.D thesis. Always cast in the shadow of his highly accomplished father Eli Michaelson, the estranged relationship between father and son is complicated further when Barkley is kidnapped on the eve of Eli winning a Nobel Prize in chemistry for a ransom of $2,000,000 (the amount won as a recipient of the prize). When his father refuses to pay, it starts a game of intrigue and deception.
