Adrien Brody is proudly checking all the boxes for his latest collaborative effort, Clean. IFC Films is opening the new dramatic crime thriller in theaters on January 28.
Clean, a man with a violent and criminal past, seeks redemption after being awakened by personal tragedy. He dedicates his life to his broken community, and the safety of young girl who reminds him of his daughter. When her life is put in danger, it ignites a return to the darkness and violence he’s worked so hard to leave behind. In his attempts to save her, he might very well save himself.
Brody’s statement – released along with the assets – alludes to his upbringing in New York City, acknowledging ongoing hardships that continue to plague rural and suburban neighborhoods to this day. He describes the film as “a tribute to the fearlessness of those, who, in spite of pain, loss and regret, fight to hold on to their humanity and transcend the obstacles they face.”
Reuniting with Bullet Head director Paul Solet, Brody makes his return to the screen wearing multiple hats on the new crime thriller as star, co-writer, composer, and producer out of his Fable House production banner.
“In addition to writing this together with Paul, Clean was a unique opportunity to merge several forms of expression” adds Brody. “I created the score and original music for the film in an effort to merge the emotional language of music with character work and further enhance the story. It’s allowed me to finally channel my instincts and yearnings as a writer, actor and musician.”
Clean also stars Glenn Fleshler, Richie Merritt, Chandler Ari DuPont, Mykelti Williamson, RZA, Michelle Wilson and John Bianco.
