Searching For Sonny

Welcome back to This Week In Discs! As always, if you see something you like, click on the image to buy it. Searching for Sonny Elliot reluctantly heads home for his ten-year high school reunion, but instead of the expected disappointments he discovers a missing friend, a murder and a mystery. Writer/director Andrew Disney’s feature debut is an indie rarity in that it’s as funny as any big screen comedy. The laughs come in part due to Disney’s sharp and witty script, but credit should also go to the main cast of Jason Dohring, Nick Kocher and Brian McElhaney. The trio has a smooth and perfectly timed chemistry together, and they help make the film a joy to watch. The lovely Minka Kelly helps in that department as well. [Extras: Commentary, additional scenes, bloopers, featurettes] Also available on Blu-ray.

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:
