Forty Shades of Blue

Director: Ira Sachs
Distributor: First Look Pictures

“It’s just a moment in time that happened in Memphis that was pure magic…and I’m just so thankful that I was a part of it.” So says legendary record producer Alan James (Academy Award Nominee Rip Torn) of his heyday as a hitmaker in the city of soul. Those days have faded into the past, but the larger-than-life songsmith still continues to reap the benefits, including his Russian trophy-girlfriend, Laura (Independent Spirit Award Nominee Dina Korzun), a beautiful young woman he brought home with him from a trip to Moscow. Laura’s life in America is better than anything she’s ever known, but Alan’s carousing lifestyle tests her patience. When Michael (Darren Burrows, tv’s Northern Exposure) the handsome, estranged son of one of Alan’s previous marriages arrives on the scene, the delicate balance of this intriguing relationship changes forever.
