LOS ANGELES, January 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Vision Films Inc. (“Vision”) announces the VOD and DVD release of honesty weekend from the writer-director Leslie Thomas and Putti Media on February 16, 2021. At the heart of this decidedly modern relationship comedy is a troubled young marriage and a diverse group of close friends struggling to embrace intimacy and true adulthood. Filmed primarily over ten days in a country house, the set anchors him real, and at times raunchy, as he grapples with a myriad of issues including sex, body image, infidelity, long-held secrets and the growing difficulties of changing friendships. Original music by Mandy Hoffman (Lovers, Hala, I love Dick).
Synopsis: To turn the tide on their marriage, a young couple on the rocks are prescribed a weekend of total honesty by their therapist. When their rambunctious group of friends joins them, the good, the bad, and the hilarious come out in ways that only longtime friends can reveal. This limitless weekend of truth, fun, and mayhem might not have been the best idea.

Featuring Adam Bartley (Longmire), Nathalie Ceballos (united we fall), Dioni Michelle Collins (General Hospital), Pete Ploszek (Teen Wolf, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), Sabina Gadecki (The best of LA), Evan Watkins (Adam ruins everything), Susan Walters (vampire diary, To love, the young and the restless) and Lorraine Pascale (celebrity chef/TV personality).
Lise RomanoffCEO and Managing Director of Vision Films shares, “honesty weekend is a contemporary film about ensemble relationships that is akin to classic coming-of-age films, such as The big thrill, which examine and confront good and bad personal truths and betrayals. Behind the humor are very poignant messages of acceptance, tolerance and self-love, important reminders for everyone, especially these days.”
Writer-director Leslie Thomas adds: “I relish good relationship comedies. So when I decided to make my first feature, I wanted to deal with characters on what I call the ‘bridge to adulthood’ struggling to let go. immature beliefs, outdated fantasies and fears in order to grow. Growth is, by nature, painful and inconvenient, so it is perfect for comedy. During filming, I played with improvisation and kept the loose things. You think these people are friends because they became friends as we created real camaraderie and connection in this Topanga Canyon home.”
honesty weekend will be available on streaming and cable platforms including: Amazon, iTunes, GooglePlay, Vudu, FandangoNow, and on hundreds of cable providers including Comcast, Spectrum, Charter, Cox, Dish, DirecTV and more. DVD retailers will include Amazon and all other major online retailers.
