Crossroad will bring audiences to the edge of their seats this November 2012. A new drama that features the lives of 12 strangers in a diner that realize that their lives are interconnected. Michael (played by Philip Bulcock) is out for revenge and sets up a meeting with Clef Robie (Sean Galuszka), the man who murdered his family 6 years ago. Michael’s plan for revenge comes to a halt when two men come in the diner to rob it. Michael decides to take matters into his own hands and shoots the gunmen and takes everyone hostage until his mission is fulfilled. Let’s check out the early news for the movie Crossroad:
“Crossroad: A New Thriller Film This November
David Dginguerian had a lot of things going well in his life: a successful marriage to a model and actress and a string of successful business endeavors as an entrepreneur. But he and his wife, Amy Weber, both wanted children, and doctors had told them that was impossible.
But when they were blessed with twins after all, Dginguerian wanted to offer his thanks to God by spreading a faith-filled message through film. Three years later, he and Weber (who also has a prominent role in the film) are part of a team of producers who are hosting the world premiere of the new film “Crossroad” Sunday at the Alex Theatre in Glendale.
A surprisingly gritty thriller following the lives of 12 intersecting characters trapped in a diner together after it is unexpectedly robbed by masked gunmen, “Crossroad” offers a message of hope and forgiveness. For it is by resolving their conflicts and coming together to stand up in the face of evil that the characters manage to save themselves and each other — a message that held great appeal for Dginguerian.
“The script just touched me because it was a powerful, motivational story,” says Dginguerian, who has spent his life in Glendale and believes that his family “might have been the first Armenian family to settle there.” “That was the one thing that got my attention on this film. Even though it’s Christian, it’s still a mainstream film. You don’t want to push the faith message too much because you want to get in the theater system. It’s 12 strangers who each have a problem and all just happen to go to the diner in the morning and then it gets robbed. It’s amazing to see how they have so much in common, not just the story of one person. I call it the ‘Crash’ of Christian movies.”
Indeed, a look at the film’s trailer reveals a movie that has a gritty and realistic sensibility and genuinely adult conflicts among a broad array of Angelenos, much like the Best Picture Oscar-winning “Crash.” Credit for that adult tone, a rarity in the Christian-film world, which often seeks to provide sanitized family films with only mild conflicts, rests with the film’s writer/director Shervin Youssefian.”
