Tackling the patriarchy is an underlying theme that at one point actress Olivia Wilde hinted at during her press run for Sarah Daggar-Nickson’s directorial debut, A Vigilante.
Wilde makes her foray this time around as Sadie, a former spousal abuse victim who ingeniously and ruthlessly helps other victims turn the tables on their domestic abusers. During this course in her life, she’s also on the hunt for the husband she must kill to truly be free.
The film was a well-received feat by festival attendees at SXSW last Spring and you’ll find plenty of equally positive sentiments from critics to boot following screenings in South Korea, Australia and Sweden.
For this, it was certainly enough for the likes of Saban Films to nab the rights to, and now with one week DirecTV window ahead of its March 29 theatrical release, the official trailer is now up and running as well from Mongrel whose Canada release dates are still pending.
