'Franklyn' on DVD

By Chase Kahn

Gerald McMorrow's Franklyn, a kind of fantasy/sci-fi, head-trip drama starring Ryan Phillipe, Eva Green and Sam Riley (Control), will finally hit DVD and Blu-Ray in the states on 11.17.09 -- courtesy of Image.

Summary from IMDB: "The film is a split narrative set simultaneously in contemporary London and in a future metropolis ruled by religious fervor. It's the story of four lost souls, divided by two parallel worlds, on course for an explosive collision when a single bullet will decide all their fates."

Franklyn was never given a theatrical release in the U.S. It was released on 02.27.09 in the UK and will play at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival this August. Surely, it's a mess, but rarely does a film with this kind of cast, wackiness and all around intrigue go straight to DVD.


  1. That's good to know because I was planning on just buying the UK release, it's a pretty good film.

  2. Oh, really? Where did you get to see it?

  3. Let's just say I did a little searching and found it ;) Anyways here was my review if your interested:
