Amazon Studios has acquired Run Sweetheart Run, an independent movie from Blumhouse about a first date gone wrong.
Run Sweetheart Run will now be heading to Amazon Prime Studio. It had its world premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
It is directed by Shana Feste and stars Ella Balinska (Charlie’s Angels) as a woman in Los Angeles who goes on a first date with an attractive man (played by Game of Thrones’ Pilou Asbaek). The date spirals out of control and the protagonist discovers that her date isn’t who he appears to be.
The movie’s official synopsis reads:
Timid and hardworking single mother Shari (Ella Balinska, Charlie’s Angels) brushes away hesitations and decides to dip her toe back into the dating scene after being spurred on by her coworkers. She’s thrilled when her boss sets her up on a blind date with Ethan (Pilou Asbæk, Game of Thrones), who initially proves every bit as charming and magnetic as his photo. Ethan can’t hide his true nature for very long though—and when things quickly turn sinister, Shari must find a way to escape. Forced to navigate the streets of LA after hours on foot, Shari learns Ethan is far more connected and violent than she ever imagined.”
Filmmaker Shana Feste speaking about the film said:
As crazy as audiences may find the film protagonist’s experience, I wrote and directed a film that is based on a very personal story for me and I’m thrilled that a global audience will have the chance to see it soon on Amazon Prime.
It was based on a bad date that I went on when I was going to UCLA. I went on this horrible date with this guy that looked perfect on paper. I was so excited for it. I was wearing my perfect little black dress. And the date went wrong very fast, and I literally – without a purse, shoes, cell phone – just ran home from Hollywood Hills to West Los Angeles. I think every woman can relate to something like that because every woman has their own real-life horror film to tell.”
Sounds like a real crowd-pleaser and because of its original nature, many movie fans will not want to miss it.
