More about Altered Minds
Every family has its secrets. Some, however, are far, far darker than others. Altered Minds, a taut psychological thriller from director Michael Z. Wechsler, may just unearth more than any one family can bear. Supported by an all-star ensemble led by multi Emmy and Tony winner and Oscar nominee Judd Hirsch, this “powerful, effective” thriller arrives on loaded DVD on June 14 from Entertainment One and Rowish Productions.
Hirsch stars as ex-CIA psychiatrist-turned- humanitarian Nathaniel Schellner, renowned for his work with war orphans suffering from PTSD – several of whom he and his wife (Caroline Lagerfelt) adopted. About to succumb to cancer, Nathan welcomes the entire family – including adoptees Harry (C.S. Lee), Julie (Jaime Ray Newman) and Tommy (Ryan O’Nan) – back to their idyllic home for a final gathering before his death. Unfortunately, the warm reunion spirals out of control when Tommy, a tormented novelist, makes a stunning accusation that his father adopted his children not out of love but for dark experiments in mind control. Plagued by terrifying visions of secret labs, underground cells and implanted electrodes, Tommy makes a desperate bid to save his sanity by uncovering family secrets before it’s too late.
Judd Hirsch gives a career-redefining performance in an atmospheric thriller called “an impressive debut from a director in full control of the material… the boasts terrific production values, pitch-perfect performances, and an eerie soundscape of found noises that evoke the feel of a surreal nightmare.” And, for fans of cinema, the Altered Minds DVD is loaded with specially-produced extras giving in-depth, behind-the-scenes looks at what it takes to make an independent film, from Day One through final edit.
Altered Minds is also currently available for download on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, YouTube, Vudu, Xbox and Playstation.
The cast of Altered Minds includes Judd Hirsch (A Beautiful Mind, Ordinary People, “Taxi”), Ryan O’Nan (“Ray Donovan”, “Fargo”, The Dry Land), C.S. Lee (“Dexter”, “True Detective”, “Chuck”), Jaime Ray Newman (“Bates Motel”, “Wicked City”, “Grimm”, “Drop Dead Diva”), Caroline Lagerfelt (“Gossip Girls”) and Joseph Lyle Taylor (“Law & Order: SVU”, “Justified”).
