A Comedy About Love, Loss and Other Felonies
LOS ANGELES,CA, August 9, 2012 – Entertainment One Home Video will release LET GO, the new indie dramedy written and directed by Brian Jett and starring Kevin Hart, Gillian Jacobs, Ed Asner and David Denman on August 21st, 2012.
Irreverent, touching and funny, LET GO is an ensemble comedy that follows the intertwining stories of Walter Dishman (David Denman), a melancholy parole officer struggling with the doldrums of married life, and three eccentric ex-convicts that were recently placed under his supervision. Darla DeMint (Gillian Jacobs), is a sultry femme fatale on the run from a psychopathic ex-boyfriend that she stole from and whose heart she has broken. A cranky geriatric criminal, Artie Satz’s (Ed Asner), feeble attempts to resume his life of crime are continually thwarted when nobody will take him seriously. Nearing rock bottom after his criminal conviction for insurance fraud and the break-up of his marriage, Kris Styles (Kevin Hart), an Ivy League educated African-American doctor, is forced to take the most menial jobs imaginable to satisfy the conditions of his parole. Using the afflictions of modern love as a common thread, the stories build to a poignant climax as each of the characters struggle to free themselves from both literal and figurative bonds.
“I would like to express my sincere gratitude to eOne, for their belief in the project and giving the film an opportunity to find an audience. It is overwhelming to receive such unconditional support from the many people who were essential to the making of this film (the investors, cast and crew) and as a result, I will forever be indebted to each and every one of them,” said director and writer Brian Jett.
LET GO will have a Day-and-Date release of August 21st, 2012 courtesy of Entertainment One on Home Video, Video On Demand and the following digital providers: iTunes, Amazon, Sony Playstation, Vudu, Microsoft Xbox and Google Youtube.
