From the Twitch Live Stage at New York Comic Con 2017, IMDb LIVE host Kevin Smith talks to Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada about the development of the Marvel franchise, his history at Comic Con and more.
Based on true events. On the edges of Las Vegas, 17-year-old Andrew's life is spiraling out of control. Unable to cope with the loss of his father, Andrew's descent into drugs and violence is gaining momentum, and the once promising young man is now headed for self-destruction. Andrew's mother, helpless to control her son and fighting an addiction of her own, refuses to watch idly as her only child destroys himself. As a last resort, she hires a private company to forcibly kidnap and confine him in a locked-down and corrupt psychiatric hospital. As Andrew is subjected to the secret physical and emotional abuses of the program, something inside him is re-awakened. He must somehow get free to save what's left of his life, but to do that, he knows he must first face his own demons head-on. Written by

What the hell's "conspiracy to escape?"
Hey, watch it, mister! Huh? H-E double hockey sticks - that's a curse word. Now I want you to write 500 words on the deleterious effects of profanity.

Great writing. Great direction. Superb acting. A stunning debut film that displays the triple-threat talents of Lapica (writer, director and lead actor). The film reminded me of the self-recognition-angst I felt when I first read one of my all-time favorite books, Catcher In The Rye. Lapica's character (based on a true story) is the Holden Caulfied of our generation. In addition, the editing is excellent, especially the money/drug exchange scene. The music compliments the story as well. This film is a must see for indie film fans. It's a film you'll want to share with friends who've struggled in similar situations. Looking forward to more of Lapica's work!
