Following the encouraging reviews ‘Hick’ received upon it’s big screen debut, it comes as no surprise hearing that director Derick Martini’s coming-of-age story will be released on DVD in the UK on June 17.
Chloe Moretz plays 13-year-old Luli, who runs away from home in Nebraska and heads to Las Vegas. Armed with her smarts, a pistol and pocket money, she hitchhikes her way west.
Along the way, Luli crosses paths with cowboy Eddie Redmayne (Les Misérables), an unsteady rebel with questionable motives and Glenda (Blake Lively), a cocaine-snorting drifter on the run.
Just as things seem to be going fairly well for Luli, an unwelcomed visitor returns and becomes increasingly difficult to get rid off. Luli’s journey on the road takes more than few turns, but it’s her flippant attitude and feisty demeanor that prevents the dark moments from bringing her down.
Adapted from the critically acclaimed novel by Andrea Portes, the powerful story will “pull you into a provocative world of drugs, seduction and murder.”
Hick will be released on June 17.
