Just over two years ago, Christoph Waltz’s directorial debut, Georgetown, premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. Now it’s finally getting a release.
Based on an article from The New York Times Magazine about a real-life murder, Waltz also stars – alongside Vanessa Redgrave, Annette Bening and Corey Hawkins.
The crime thriller sees Waltz as Ulrich Mott, “an eccentric and smooth-talking social climber who seems to have everyone in Washington, D.C. wrapped around his finger. But when his wealthy, well-connected and much older wife (Redgrave) turns up dead in their home, her daughter Amanda (Bening) suspects Ulrich may not be all that he seems as the police investigation begins to uncover a larger deception that goes far deeper than anyone ever imagined.”
Georgetown is receiving a limited cinema release before hitting home in May.
