I once locked myself in my apartment for almost a week once. Barely went out, ordered in pizza, stocked up on the sweet liquids of life. Okay, so it was in order to force myself to study for finals and finish up a couple of papers that I had been neglecting all semester. Same difference.
Selma Blair’s character in George Gallo’s psychological thriller “Columbus Circle” is a bit more dramatic, if just a tad. There’s also something about murderous shenanigans going on about her apartment complex. Our closeted heroine and “Columbus Circle” will finally reveal itself to the world on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Download and On Demand on March 6, 2012 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Check out a trailer for the film below.
In order to escape the hounding public and press, Abigail, the famous daughter of a wealthy industrialist, secluded herself in her Manhattan loft on the day she received her enormous inheritance – her eighteenth birthday. Sequestered at the top of the Columbus Circle luxury apartment high-rise, Abigail remained seemingly secure for nearly 20 years until the day her elderly neighbor was suddenly slain. Abigail’s world is now disrupted by strange new neighbors and a police investigation that brings the inquisitive and intrusive NYPD Homicide Detective Frank Giardello (Giovanni Ribisi – Contraband, Saving Private Ryan) to her door. Peering anxiously through her peephole each day, Abigail soon learns that the dangerous new tenants, Lillian Hart (Amy Smart – The Butterfly Effect, Varsity Blues) and Charles Stratford (Jason Lee – Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked, “My Name is Earl”), may threaten more than just her privacy.
Starring Selma Blair, Amy Smart, Jason Lee, Giovanni Ribisi, Kevin Pollak, and Beau Bridges.
