Blood Runs Deep
THE KING is a controversial and provocative thriller starring international sensation Gael Garcia Bernal ('The Motorcycle Diaries', 'Bad Education', 'Y tu mama tambien') and screen legend William Hurt ('Kiss Of The Spider Woman', 'The Big Chill'). Bernal burns up the screen in his American debut as Elvis, a handsome and charismatic 21-year-old just out of the navy. He heads to a sleepy Texas town dreaming of some kind of reconciliation with the father who abandoned him as a child, only to find that he has become a Pastor with a new family - wife Twyla and teenage children Malerie and Paul. When Pastor David subsequently rejects Elvis once again, Elvis secretly begins to make his way into the family, prompting a fateful journey through sin, faith and redemption. From Oscar-nominated screenwriter Milo Addica ('Monster's Ball', 'Birth'), THE KING is hauntingly filmed with a dark dreamlike intensity, and played to critical acclaim at the 2005 Cannes and London Film Festivals.
