‘ALL IS BRIGHT’ With Rudd And Giamatti This November On Blu-ray

All_Is_Bright_BD-001I’m sure it has to do with the actors, but I am quite intrigued by this movie.  As a fan of movies like Bad Santa or even The Ice Harvest, something about a dark, off-beat comedy, set during the holiday season tends to bring a smile to my face.  It doesn’t hurt that the teaming of Paul Rudd and Paul Giamatti sounds pretty good to me.  All is Bright is the name of this film and it will be making its way to Blu-ray on November 19th.  It is currently available via On Demand now as well.  Regardless, this looks like an interesting film about some small time crooks looking to make some money in the Christmas Tree game. Maybe they will pull it off, but find out more about this Blu-ray release in the rest of this post.

BEVERLY HILLS, CA October 7, 2013 – Golden Globe® winner Paul Giamatti (Upcoming season of “Downton Abbey”) and Paul Rudd (Anchorman: The Legend Continues), two of America’s favorite comedic actors, star together for the first time in the off-beat, dark comedy ALL IS BRIGHT, debuting on Blu-ray and DVD on November 19th from Anchor Bay Films. The film is currently available on iTunes and On Demand.

Playing ex-cons trying to make fast cash selling Christmas trees in New York City, Giamatti and Rudd star along with Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine) for director Phil Morrison (Junebug). Screenplay is from Melissa James Gibson, one of the writers for the hit FX TV show, “The Americans.”

All is Bright will be available on Blu-ray™ with an Ultraviolet HD Digital Copy and DVD.

Lie, cheat, steal…it’s all part of the holiday spirit for ex-con Dennis (Paul Giamatti) and fast talker Rene (Paul Rudd) when they try to make a quick buck selling Christmas trees in New York.  For Dennis it’s a chance to go straight, and for his best friend and former partner-in-crime, Rene, it’s a chance to make some easy cash so he can marry Dennis’s ex-wife.  But for two not-very-bright guys now stuck together on the cold streets of Brooklyn, this holiday season may bring some of the most unexpected miracles of all.  Golden Globe® winner Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine, Happy-Go-Lucky) and Amy Landecker (A Serious Man) co-star in this film from executive producer Paul Giamatti and the award-winning director of Junebug, Phil Morrison.

ALL IS BRIGHT has a running time of approximately 107 minutes and is rated R for language and brief nudity.
