LANGUAGE OF A BROKEN HEART was released on VOD and DVD on October 1st, 2013.

Nick Brown (Juddy Talt), a neurotic best-selling author on love, with the heightened emotional capacity of a woman, can write so eloquently on the subject, but can't keep girls from leaving him. After he comes back to his apartment in New York City to find his fiancée with another man, he returns to his hometown and the only woman he had ever left, his mother, Mimi (Julie White). There, he renews his relationships with the people that matter the most, his family and friends. By a simple twist of fate, he meets the free-spirited antiquarian bookseller Emma (Kate French) who challenges him to let people appreciate him for who he is. LANGUAGE OF A BROKEN HEART is a fresh, sweet comedy about loves inherent possessiveness, and the realization that it's not how you love, but who you love.

The deal was negotiated by Steve Roberts, President and Sandy Moore, Senior Vice President, Acquisitions, Operations and Marketing, of House Lights Media and Susan Jackson, CEO of Freestyle Digital Media.

"Language of A Broken Heart is a great addition to FDM's repertoire of releases," said Jackson, "we are always happy to find independent gems such as this one."
