LD Entertainment and Roadside Attractions have teamed up on their 11th collaboration for the U.S. theatrical release of Thor Freudenthal’s WORDS ON BATHROOM WALLS, based on Julia Walton’s YA novel. This partnership follows their success on 2019’s Oscar-winning JUDY and precedes their September release of the Sundance Film Festival hit THE GLORIAS. It will be the first theatrical release for either company since the COVID-19 pandemic began. The film will be released on August 21, 2020 nationwide.
WORDS ON BATHROOM WALLS tells the story of Adam (Charlie Plummer), who appears to be your typical young adult – a little unkempt with raging hormones and excited about a future pursuing his dream of becoming a chef. Expelled halfway through his senior year, Adam is diagnosed with a mental illness that he keeps secret at his new school. Living in constant fear of being exposed, Adam finds a soulful, comforting connection in Maya (Taylor Russell), an outspoken and fiercely intelligent girl who inspires him to open his heart and not be defined by his condition. With the love and support of his newfound romance and family, Adam is hopeful for the very first time that he can see the light and triumph over the challenges that lie ahead. The film also stars Andy Garcia, AnnaSophia Robb, Beth Grant, Devin Bostick, Lobo Sebastian, with Molly Parker and Walton Goggins.
