Anchor Bay presents the psychological thriller Abandoned on Blu-ray and DVD beginning August 24, 2010. This dark tale of a woman searching for her boyfriend after he mysteriously vanishes from the hospital marks the last screen appearance by the late actress Brittany Murphy (8 Mile, Sin City, Just Married, Clueless, Girl, Interrupted).
Abandoned follows Mary Walsh (Murphy) as she delivers boyfriend Kevin (Lois & Clark’s Dean Cain) to a hospital for a routine outpatient surgery. But when Mary returns to take him home, he is nowhere to be found. The hospital administrator (Austin Powers’ Mimi Rogers) can’t find any record of him, and a police search turns up nothing.
Increasingly frantic, Mary is taken to a staff psychiatrist, Dr. Bensley (The Sopranos’ Peter Bogdanovich) who pronounces her unstable. Now, she must not only find her missing boyfriend, but prove her own sanity. When a stranger informs Mary he knows of Kevin’s whereabouts, but demands a $10 million ransom, Mary realizes that to save herself and the man she loves, she must use any means necessary.
Abandoned is a film that will not be forgotten, nor will the powerful performance of Brittany Murphy.
