Gravitas Ventures will be releasing their new crime thriller Acts of Desperation on VOD platforms in just a few days. The movie is well-named….pretty much everyone in it is desperate in some way.

A nameless cop isn’t having the best of weeks. He suspects his wife is cheating on him, and the thoughts of said affair are keeping him on edge during his already stressful job. He’s on the trail of a bank robber while at the same time facing blackmail from two greedy street thugs. In the middle of all this is a “desperately obsessed woman” who’s falling in love with the robber after he saved her from a suicide attempt. When all these incidents meet and clash together, things get noisy.

Acts of Desperation stars Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas). Jason Gedrick (Backdraft, “Bosch”), Kira Reed Lorsch (“The Bay”), Tim DeZarn (The Cabin in the Woods), Treva Etienne (Black Hawk Down), Erin O’Brien (Killing Joan), Neraida Bega (Christmas Crime Story), Chris Coppola (“Ray Donovan”) and Vince Lozano (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl). The film was written by Nathan Illsley and directed by Richard Friedman.

Check out Acts of Desperation when it appears on VOD platforms March 12.

A desperate cop on the edge is obsessed over the fact that his beautiful but frantic wife is having an affair. At the same time, he tracks a desperately shrewd bank robber who is falling in love with a desperately obsessed woman whose life he just saved from suicide. As if that’s not enough, he is also being blackmailed by two desperately unhinged street criminals who will stop at nothing to get their money. Time is running out for all of them as their worlds collide.
