This film, written and directed by Todd and Brad Barnes premiered to decent reviews at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, where it even picked up the Best of Next Award.
The Locksmith stars Anslem Richardson, Ana Reeder, Stephen Rannazzisi, Cesar De Leon, Mary Beth Peil and Michelle Krusiec.
Synopsis: Mike (Richardson) is a locksmith. He’s also a prisoner on work release, but you wouldn’t know it. He’s just trying to focus on his house calls and reconcile with his ex-girlfriend—until Margo (Reeder) hijacks his day. A live-wire kook who’s certain her boyfriend is cheating on her, Margo bulldozes Mike into spying on the alleged cad. The result: an all-day adventure with a stolen vehicle, a visit to an unlikely drug dealer, and a low blood-sugar attack.
It sounds like a perfectly solid indie drama. I’ll be sure to check it out when it’s released in the UK.

The Locksmith will be released on DVD in the US on September 21, 2010.
