This... Is Bellflower

Bellflower. The touching love story of a man and a woman having the time of their hipsterific lives until they want to tear each other's eyes out. This is also the story of a man and his best friend and their dream of building a flamethrower and Mad Max-esque muscle car to compliment it so they might be ready for the inevitable apocalypse. At the very least, this is the story of Us. ..the geek Us.

Best friends Woodrow and Aiden spend all of their free time building Mad Max-inspired flamethrowers and muscle cars in preparation for a global apocalypse. But when Woodrow meets a charismatic young woman and falls hard in love, he and Aiden quickly integrate into a new group of friends, setting off on a journey of love and hate, betrayal, infidelity and extreme violence more devastating and fiery than any of their apocalyptic fantasies.

Rarely can we see a movie so hysterical and sad and violent and tense and awesome all at the same time. While some films strive to be timeless, Bellflower mirrors a very specific minute in an hour of the life we are living right now. It's a scream of anguish and a satisfying punch through a sheet rock wall on an intolerably hot summer's day.

The film opens in New York and Los Angeles on Friday, August 5th, 2011. National rollout to follow. It would be nothing short of amazing to get a movie like this playing alongside the vacuous summer blockbusters, so tell a friend and let's make it happen!
