Joss Whedon’s New Film is a Surprise VOD Release: In Your Eyes

Posted on April 21, 2014 at 8:01 am

Joss Whedon made a surprise announcement after the premiere of his new film, “In Your Eyes” at the Tribeca Film Festival. Instead of a theatrical release, it is immediately available through Video on Demand. Here’s the synopsis: In the frozen East Coast winter, Rebecca (Zoe Kazan) is withering away in a life of cocktail parties and lonely nights as the sheltered, soft-spoken wife of a successful doctor. Across the country in sun-drenched, arid New Mexico, charismatic ex-con Dylan (Michael Stahl-David) is struggling to find his footing and a fresh start. When these polar opposites realize they share an inexplicable connection, a unique metaphysical romance begins. It is written by Whedon and directed by Brin Hill.

EW has the opening scene. I think it is thrilling that a major director is experimenting with alternative distribution options and I hope a lot of Whedon fans take a look.
