Happy release day to HAPPILY, opening in theatres and VOD today. This dark, twisted romantic comedy written & directed by BenDavid Grabinski (ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK?) features a fantastic score from Joseph Trapanese (TRON: LEGACY, OBLIVION, STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON).
HAPPILY is fueled with so much paranoia, it could easily be an extended Twilight Zone episode. Tom (Joel McHale) and Janet (Kerry Bishe) have been married for 15 years and living the perfect life. Their relationship is so perfect that instead of being supported by their friends, they are resented and rejected until a mysterious man in black (Stephen Root) turns up on their doorstep and changes everything for them. To say more would be to spoil the fun.
One of the best films we've seen in this past year, we are thrilled to bring it to you on both vinyl & digital. We Buy Your Kids did the album artwork, and it's so perfect. We hope you love it as much as we do. Support HAPPILY and independent filmmakers this weekend!
Joseph Trapanese's score is a moody, mysterious piece of work, full of space and quiet, contemplative moments, but with an unnerving sense of dread below the surface that gives just the right amount of unease whilst listening.
