Available now On Demand, and from iTunes, Veronika Decides to Die has released a couple of new clips. The Sarah Michelle Gellar vehicle has a great supporting cast, including David Thewlis and Melissa Leo, and looks to be a mind-bending puzzle that actually works.
After attempting suicide, Veronika attempts suicide, but wakes up in a privately-funded psychiatric hospital. Apparently a place with some unusual practices, it looks as though the director of the institution (Thewlis) is attempting to turn Veronika around, and get her to want to live, despite the ironic twist that it looks like she only has a few weeks to live anyway.
It’s not your usual “trapped in a psych ward” film, and this is a cast that should be able to get something interesting out of just about any idea.
Take a look at the new clips below, and don’t forget the trailer.
