The striking feature film debut of writer-director Alexandre Moors, “Blue Caprice” is a harrowing yet restrained psychological thriller about an abandoned boy lured to America into the shadows of a dangerous father figure. Inspired by true events, “Blue Caprice” investigates the notorious and horrific Beltway sniper attacks from the point of view of the two perpetrators, whose distorted father-son relationship facilitated their long and bloody journey across America.
Marked by captivating performances by Isaiah Washington and Tequan Richmond, lyrical camerawork, and a unique and bold structure, “Blue Caprice” documents the mechanisms that lead its subjects to embrace physical violence. “Blue Caprice” paints a riveting portrait of 21st-century America and a haunting depiction of two cold-blooded killers that will endure long after the lights come up.
Check out the first official trailer for Blue Caprice. The film premiered earlier this year at Sundance to very positive reviews. It stars Isaiah Washington (Grey’s Anatomy) and Tequan Richmond (Everybody Hates Chris) as the father-son sniper duo.
