DARK HORSE stars Jordan Gelber, Selma Blair, Christopher Walken, Mia Farrow and Justin Bartha and received its world premiere at the 2011 Venice Film Festival.

In his mid-30s, Abe (Jordan  Gelber) clings to the trappings of his  adolescence, including the  extensive collection of toys and action figures adorning his boyhood  bedroom. Still living with his parents Jackie (Christopher Walken) and  Phyllis (Mia Farrow), Abe works for his increasingly disappointed Dad  and spends evenings ruthlessly trouncing his Mom at backgammon. His  older brother Richard’s (Justin Bartha) success as a California doctor only feeds Abe’s resentment and rage at his family over his failures. When Abe meets Miranda (Selma Blair), whose personal and professional disasters have sent her scrambling back  to the safety of her parents’ suburban home, he sees what he thinks is a chance at true love. Abe throws himself into pursuing the overmedicated Miranda,convincing her to marry him after a whirlwind courtship. But, as the couple haltingly  prepares to start a new life together, the film swerves into Abe’s subconscious, where his crippling self-doubt and dark fears begin to undermine his nearly realized dream of a fuller life.

DARK HORSE opens across the UK on Friday 29 June.
