Finn Wittrock (Unbroken, My All American, “American Horror Story”) and Emilie de Ravin (“Lost,” “Once Upon a Time’) star in the captivating drama, The Submarine Kid, available on Digital HD and On Demand January 12 from MarVista Digital Entertainment. Co-written by Wittrock, marking his writing debut, alongside Director Eric Bilitch (“Professional Friend”), the feature also stars Jack Coleman (“Castle,” “Heroes: Reborn”), Nancy Travis (“Last Man Standing”), Jessy Schram (“Once Upon a Time,” “Falling Skies”) and Matt O’Leary (Brick, Frailty). The Submarine Kid is a timely film that takes a unique look into one Marine’s journey through wartime post-traumatic stress disorder. Military veterans worked in front of and behind the camera lens to create the arresting drama, including Technical Advisor Jon Barton, Stunt Coordinator Matt Anderson and actor Scott Levy as Sgt. Barton, along with a host of amazing extras.
The Submarine Kid follows Spencer King (Wittrock), a U.S. Marine who has just returned home from his third tour after a difficult wartime experience. He struggles to acclimate himself back into civilian life with his family, friends, and his girlfriend, while he also deals with being haunted by an event from the battlefield. However, when he meets a mysterious woman (de Ravin) who fully captivates him, they escape into an entrancing relationship. His bond with this woman provides Spencer a new focus in which he can withdraw, creating a destructive situation from which only Spencer can save himself.
An official selection at the Napa Valley Film Festival (2015), the compelling feature will be available on Amazon, Comcast Xfinity, Google Play, iTunes, Vimeo and VUDU, as well as On Demand with AT&T, Charter, Comcast, Cox, TWC, Verizon and Vubiquity.
