New Film to Premiere Exclusively on DIRECTV CINEMA®

DIRECTV, now part of the AT&T* family, is offering customers an exclusive look at “Backtrack”. AFI Award-nominee Michael Petroni wrote and directed the film. It will premiere on DIRECTV CINEMA®. The film stars Adrien Brody (“The Grand Budapest Hotel”) and Sam Neill (“Peaky Blinders”).   

After weathering the loss of his 12 year-old daughter Evie, psychologist Peter Bower (Adrien Brody) and his wife Carol decide to start afresh. They move back to Melbourne, where they first met. Old friend and mentor, Dr. Duncan Steward (Sam Neill) sets up patient referrals from a psychiatric clinic for Peter to help restore some semblance of normality. However, things are far from normal. Peter is troubled by the peculiarities of his patients. He delves into their history and finds that each died within hours of each other on the same day.

“‘Backtrack’ is a spine-chilling film full of twists and turns. Adrien Brody’s performance is phenomenal,” said Hanny Patel, vice president, Revenue & Content Marketing, AT&T. “Our customers can enjoy Michael Petroni’s latest movie 1 month before it hits theaters.”
