THE PLAYROOM, Starring John Hawkes to Hit Select Theaters 2/8

THE PLAYROOM, starring John Hawkes and Molly Parker, will hit NY and LA theaters on February 8th. The film premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last year, with standout performances especially from up-and-comer Olivia Harris, who plays Maggie in the film.


In 1970s suburbia, Maggie and her younger siblings spend the night telling each other stories in the attic. Downstairs, as their parents entertain guests over the course of a gin-soaked evening, truths are unearthed and betrayals come to light. With standout performances from John Hawkes, Molly Parker, and a cast of talented young actors, Julia Dyer's second feature is an honest and challenging look at the reality behind the façade of a seemingly perfect American family.

The film, which premiered in the gala/spotlight section of this year's Tribeca Film Festival, was produced by Stephen Dyer ("Hysteria") and Angie Meyer ("Wuss"), and is slated for release at the Cinema Village in NYC and the Laemmle Music Call in LA on Feb. 8th, 2013, and Texas Theater in Dallas, TX on Feb 15th, with additional markets soon to be announced.
