Michael Di Jiacomo's 1-900-TONIGHT Now Available on iTunes

Indie film fans finally have the opportunity to see two veteran actors in an iconic New York City film that has not been shown in theaters: Michael Di Jiacomo's 1-900-TONIGHT the third in a trilogy of films made in tribute to acclaimed Dutch filmmaker, Theo Van Gogh.

John Turturro (O Brother, Where Art Thou, The Big Lebowski) plays Wooly, a simple, curiously odd bike messenger hoping to hear a bit of "spicy" talk on a phone sex line from Patti (Katherine Borowitz, A Serious Man, The Man Who Wasn't There), an agoraphobic shut-in. Together they prove that wisps of enchantment can be found in even the most overlooked of hearts.

Di Jiacomo (Animals With the Toll Keeper) joins Stanley Tucci (Blind Date) and Steve Buscemi (Interview) in making a film inspired by Van Gogh, who was killed in 2004 at the age of 47. 1-900-TONIGHT premiered at the 2011 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (originally titled Somewhere Tonight) yet never received theatrical distribution, despite its bankable stars, locale and provocative premise.

The palpable chemistry between real-life husband and wife Turturro and Borowitz adds an intimacy and poignancy to this cinematic duet.

1-900 Tonight is now available exclusively On Demand and digitally via iTunes (bit.ly/1900iTunes).
