Shoreline Entertainment Launches Two Lexicon-Produced Films At DVD/VOD/EST May 19

Shoreline Entertainment is bringing two Lexicon feature film productions to hard media and digital distribution on May 19, 2020: POINT DEFIANCE and WATERLILY JAGUAR.
The two films will be available on DVD—pre-order now on Amazon, Target, and Walmart—and most VOD/EST/OTT platforms.

Justin Foia’s POINT DEFIANCE brings together producing partners Double El Productions and Room in the Sky Films in association with Lexicon Entertainment. The psychological thriller is Foia’s directorial debut but his second release; he directed 2019’s DOE (with several members of POINT DEFIANCE’s team), which won the audience award at the Durango Film Festival. The film is produced by veteran independent film producer Mark Mathias Sayre and executive produced by Larry Nealy and Steven Michael Swadling.

POINT DEFIANCE stars Derek Phillips, Josh Crotty (Scandal), Lauren Elaine (PARTY MONSTERS), Sarah Butler, and Steven Swadling (KICKBOXERs; DOE). TV veteran Phillips was a regular on the hit Friday Night Lights and Longmire among others, while Butler (I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE and I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE 3) also starred in another of Sayre’s producing efforts, DOUBTING THOMAS.
Written by first-time screenwriting brothers Justin and Timothy Foia, the taut and suspenseful film focuses on stockbroker Peter Allen (Phillips), whose world is turned upside down when his troubled younger brother Alex (Crotty) returns from military duty in Afghanistan while Peter is under house arrest, forcing the elder brother to dig into a dark and secret past that he’d sooner remain hidden.

“Tim and I have been writing together since we were kids,” Foia said upon completing the film. “We’ve both lived in the Seattle area and were inspired by the rugged beauty of Puget Sound. The setting felt like a haunting place for such a story as ours and Vashon Island served as the perfect backdrop for the film given that it is right off the coast of Point Defiance.”

Renowned actress Melora Walters’ (Big Love; MAGNOLIA; ROBERT THE BRUCE; DROWNING) directorial debut WATERLILY JAGUAR made its world premiere in late 2018 at the Breckenridge (Colorado) Film Festival.

The drama stars James Le Gros (Justified, Girls) as Bob, a famous novelist known for his “airport” best-sellers who seeks to pen a more serious novel inspired by the ancient remains of the only human ever found in the La Brea Tar Pits, only to find himself tumbling down a spiral of obsession that may leave his most important relationship in shambles: his marriage.
Also starring are Mira Sorvino (Falling Skies, DROWNING; DOE; ROMY AND MICHELE’S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION) as Bob’s wife Helen, Stacey Oristano (Friday Night Lights) as Bob’s assistant Wilhelmina, Dominic Monaghan (LORD OF THE RINGS, Lost) as Bob’s agent Bill, Christopher Backus (Bosch), and Steven Swadling (KICKBOXER films).

Walters directed from her original screenplay. Producers on the project are Lexicon Entertainment President & CEO Mark Mathias Sayre (DOUBTING THOMAS, POINT DEFIANCE, DOE), Walters, and Jonathan Piumelli (THE CLEARING), with Paul Thomas Anderson (MAGNOLIA, THE MASTER), Raphael Auerbach, Suzanei Archer, Swadling, and Nealy among the executive producers. Walters and Sayre also worked together on Will McFadden’s DOUBTING THOMAS.
