FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SLOW BURN TEXAS THRILLER AND FESTIVAL FAVORITE, ‘TWO STEP’ TO BE RELEASED THIS SUMMER.
 
'Deeply human and quietly unsettling'THE PLAYLIST
 
LOS ANGELES —Director Alex R. Johnson's award-winning thriller TWO STEP begins its limited theatrical release in New York City and Los Angeles, premiering on July 31st at the Village East Cinema, and opening in LA the following week. TWO STEP will be available across major iVOD/cVOD platforms starting on September 1st.
 
TWO STEP is a throwback Texas thriller in which the lives of James, a directionless college dropout, and Webb, a career criminal with his back against the wall, violently collide. Kicked out of college, James visits Grams, his only remaining family, who dies shortly after his arrival. He finds consolation in the company of Grams' neighbor, Dot, a dance teacher, as he figures out his next move. While settling Grams' affairs, James learns she's been the victim of the 'Grandparent Scam', in which someone posing as James has been slowly bilking her out of thousands. But before James can go looking for the culprit, he shows up at the front door, desperate for money. The culprit, Webb, has his own problems in the form of Duane, who has ordered Webb to pay an old debt or else. And if Webb can't get it from Grams, James will have to do – no matter who stands in his way.

'Writer/director Alex R. Johnson dares honor the bygone art of cinematic storytelling. It's a film in which costs – human, financial moral – are always fully counted and felt.' - FILM COMMENT
 
Jason Tyrrell, Director of Acquisitions and Distribution for Traverse Media said, 'TWO STEP is one of the most riveting films to come out of the festival circuit in 2014, and every moment of the fantastic imagery and powerful performances stick with you long after the credits roll. We are thrilled to be bringing Alex's vision to a wider audience this summer’.
 
After premiering at the 2014 SXSW film festival, TWO STEP went on to win the Grand Jury Prize at the New Hampshire International Film Festival and the Best Narrative Feature award at the Flyaway Film Festival.

  1. It's hard to have any complaints about halls in Los Angeles. It's easy to get a drink since they actually keep enough bartenders working at once, and you'll almost always find a place to sit. I love the vibe, the area, the people and the food at this place.
