“BEAT DOWN is an irreverent comedy about wrestling, family and following your dreams no matter how painful that can sometimes be.”
Just watch the trailer and we know you'll want to catch this truly cool NL production when it hits East Coast theatres on Friday, September 7th (see theatres below)
BEAT DOWN is already a winning hit - screening at many of North America's coolest independent film festivals - scoring trophies along the way.
And it's no wonder with the cast that includes stars Marthe Bernard (Republic of Doyle), Robb Wells (Trailer Park Boys) and Mark O'Brien (Republic of Doyle). Award winning director Deanne Foley (The Magnificent Molly McBride) had her hands full of talent when she set off to create this feisty film.
St.John's, NL born Foley co-wrote the script with Gemini nominated Pictou, NS native Iain MacLeod, and their words were hilariously and touchingly delivered – not only by the 3 stars noted above but by Tony Nappo (Saw II), Andy Jones (CODCO), Janet Kidder (Magic Beyond Words), Daniel Beirne (I Heart Doomsday) and real life wrestler Laura Dennis aka Cherry Bomb. And with St.John's industry veteran Paul Pope (Grown Up Movie Star, Rare Birds) as producer – this killer cast and crew have got themselves a knockout! Love that it was made here in Atlantic Canada.
Now - in celebration of their region wide release we tracked down 4 of the film's fantastic players for a very special feature we like to call 4 x 4 Q & A Smackdown. Marthe Bernard (Fran), Robb Wells (Whitey), Mark O'Brien (Michael) and Deanne Foley (the Director) will answer each answer the same 4 questions....I know - dramatic title/simple premise – but their answers are really cool and I'm so grateful they made the time for this SABS exclusive! ENJOY!!!
BEAT DOWN will open in 8 East Coast Empire Theatre locations -
