Based on the novel by acclaimed author and suspense master Patricia Highsmith (The Talented Mr. Ripley, Strangers On A Train), the psychological thriller The Cry of the Owl makes its DVD debut on June 8, 2010 from Paramount Home Entertainment.
The Cry of the Owl tells the story of Robert (Paddy Considine from Cinderella Man), a man trying to recover from a messy divorce by seeking solace in a small town. Robert becomes fascinated by the apparent domestic bliss of Jenny (Julia Stiles from The Bourne Trilogy), who he secretly watches through a window at her home. When Jenny catches him, she invites him in and the two begin a relationship, much to the chagrin of Jenny’s boyfriend. But when her boyfriend goes missing, Robert becomes the number one suspect in a murder investigation, leaving him to wonder if Jenny may not be all that she seems.
Jamie Thraves (Negative) directs The Cry of the Owl, which also stars Karl Pruner, Phillip MacKenzie, Gord Rand, James Gilbert, R.D. Reid, Caroline Dhavernas, Alex Karzis, Marcia Laskowski, Krista Bridges, Charlotte Sullivan, Robbie Campbell, Jennifer Kydd and Dru Viergever.
