The Privileged (Formerly Deadweight)

On September 20th, “The Privileged” (Formerly known as “Deadweight”) makes its worldwide debut at Cinefest – The Sudbury International Film Festival. Starring Sam Trammell and Joshua Close, this feature film was shot in Sudbury in 2012, and was financed by Telefilm Canada and the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund. Timshel was an Executive Producer on the film, with Justin Kelly producing (along with Jordan Walker.)

Richard Hunter (Close), a promising young lawyer at a prestigious firm, has the perfect future mapped out. However, a costly mistake with a powerful client has put it all at risk. In a desperate attempt to save his job, Richard and his wife Tara (Roessler) spend the weekend at the cottage of senior partner Preston Westwood (Trammell). The young couple is quickly seduced by their charismatic hosts’ lavish lifestyle, but it is clear that something ominous lies just below the surface. After a devastating act of violence reveals that they have become pawns in a blood feud between the Westwoods and a local family, Richard and Tara must decide what they are willing to sacrifice for success...their morals, their marriage, or their lives.
