25 Jul Freestyle Digital Buys High School Bullying Drama ‘Reach’
“Reach” will debut theatrically through Christian Meoli’s Voltaire Media in 10 major markets on Oct. 19 along with a day and date VOD release.
“The serious topic of bullying resonates with so many children and families these days,” said Freestyle Digital Media acquisitions director Rachel Koehler. “With our acquisition of ‘Reach,’ we at Freestyle are proud to be able to contribute to the conversation by giving the topic the exposure it so richly deserves.”
“Reach” stars Garrett Clayton as a band geek who divulges to an online pro-suicide support group that he plans to kill himself. Although his first attempt is botched, he is determined to find a way to escape his suffering. He is constantly picked on by former childhood friend and school bully (Jordan Doww), but his plans are sidetracked when he’s befriended by quirky kid, portrayed by Johnny James Fiore, and begins to form stronger relationships with his father, friends and a teacher.
