XYZ Films has released a trailer for an upcoming movie Brutal Power, a neo-noir mystery thriller set in wine country on California’s central coast. The film’s title is actually a play on words, since “brut” is a term for sparkling wine, meaning “dry, raw, or unrefined” flavor.
The film follows “newly fired reporter Sloane Sawyer (Lelia Symington) who hears that someone is harassing wine growers in her hometown and begins investigating. When the haunting beauty Dulce disappears and the seductive Tico Reyes shows up looking for her, Sloane is drawn on a twisted trail of violence and crime, determined to help those she cares about in this town… before it’s too late .”
The film was directed Eve Symington, and she explains: “Below the surface of California’s ‘wine country’ bubble complex stories, racism, class struggles and moral gray areas that make this world ripe for a modern noir story. The main character…is a modern female pitted against a classic noir detective.”
Yes, I think the wine country is a great setting for a story like this, so it’s unfortunate that the movie stars teenage wolf star Tyler Posey. The film also has stars Lelia Symington as Sloane, Vico Escorciaand Patricia Velasquez. Regardless of Posey’s involvement, I will give the film a chance. I’m trying to support the indie filmmakers out there.
XYZ Films is released Brutal Power Direct to VOD on April 21, 2022.
