‘Searching For Sonny’ Trailer is Murder Imitating Art

Searching For Sonny

In Searching for Sonny, a group of friends brought together by a high school reunion find themselves suspected of a murder that suspiciously mirrors a play they performed in high school that was written by the supposed victim. From writer/director Andrew Disney, it stars Jason Dohring (Veronica Mars, Ringer), Minka Kelly and Masi Oka.

The film hit the Austin Film Festival last year, had a limited theater run as of August 10th and comes to VOD/Blu-ray on August 28th.

Fortunately, the trailer hints that it might be a sleeper that deserves a look. All three stars were key reasons to tune into their respective television shows, and the idea seems like it was executed with a kind of tongue in cheek hipness that could work well. At any rate, the trailer has me sold. Check it out for yourself:
