It’s Fix, out from E1 Entertainment and starring Olivia Wilde from House. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:
Bolting across Los Angeles, filmmakers Bella (Olivia Wilde, Year One) and Milo (director Tao Ruspoli) dash from Beverly Hills to Watts â€“ and everywhere in between â€“ in a race-against-time to get Milo’s brother Leo (Shawn Andrews, The Caretaker) from jail to rehab before 8pm, or else Leo goes to prison for three years. Inspired by true events, FIX is a visually stunning, fast-paced ride that enjoyed significant critical acclaim following its 2009 theatrical release and was a multiple award-winner on the festival circuit. Loaded with bonus features, including two separate audio commentaries (one with the filmmaker and the crew, the other with the actors), “Making-of” video shorts and a photo gallery, this “breezy, brash” road-trip gem will park on DVD March 9 from E1 Entertainment. Shot entirely by Ruspoli with a hand-held camera, FIX follows the misfit trio over a fifteen-hour day as they document their trip from a suburban police station in Calabasas through mansions in Beverly Hills, East LA chop-shops, rural wastelands, and housing projects in Watts as they attempt to raise the $5,000 required to admit Leo into the rehab clinic. Along the way they meet dozens of colorful characters, each with their own anomalous perspective on Leo’s larger than life personality and style, and each with their own excuse for why they cannot help out. In the end, it may take the desperate irony of a drug deal to get the necessary funds to send Leo to rehab, in this film that signals a wonderful new voice in American independent feature filmmaking.
