EDGY thriller Dark Hearts, starring X-Men: First Class actor Lucas Till, has been nominated for the Best International Feature award at the Raindance Film Festival 2012. The new movie, from first-time feature director Rudolf Buitendach, will have its world premiere at the festival this Saturday, September 29, at 8.30pm. Till’s other credits include Battle Los Angeles and Walk The Line. In X-Men: First Class, the rising star (pictured above and below) played energy-blasting mutant Alex Summers (aka Havok), the brother of Scott Summers (Cyclops).
Dark Hearts also stars Kyle Schmid (The Covenant, Being Human, Copper, A History of Violence) and Goran Visnjic (Elektra, ER, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Beginners), and introduces Sonja Kinski (daughter of actress Nastassja Kinski and granddaughter of Nosferatu star Klaus Kinski) in her first leading role. Rounding out the cast are Rachel Blanchard (Snakes on a Plane, Clueless) and Juliet Landau (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Ed Wood). Originally nominated for Best UK Feature, Raindance programmers reviewed the film a final time before contacting the filmmakers with a surprising honour of upping the nomination to Best International Feature. Buitendach said of the nomination: “A Raindance laurel is an honour and represents a rewarding validation for the passionate efforts of the cast and crew who made Hearts a reality. “To have a Best International Picture nomination to boot is a humbling and thrilling achievement.” This is the 20th year for Raindance, now one of Europe’s most prestigious international film festivals. Festival founder Elliot Grove and his team had over 4,000 submissions for the 2012 event, 250 of which were selected for the festival’s lineup. Dark Hearts is one of 18 nominated feature films and competes with five other films in the Best International category. Dark Hearts features an original collaboration between Shirley Manson of Garbage and Gabrial McNair of No Doubt, plus original compositions from legendary DJ Paul Oakenfold, Richard Strange and Steve Bolton of The Who.
