TORONTO – The U.S. indie The Red Robin, starring Judd Hirsch and Ryan O’Nan, has been booked into competition at the Montreal World Film Festival.
The psychological thriller from writer-director Michael Z. Wechsler also stars C.S. Lee (Dexter), Jaime Ray Newman, Caroline Lagerfelt and Joseph Lyle Taylor.
In The Red Robin, the Emmy-winning, Oscar-nominated Hirsch plays a celebrated psychiatrist specializing in trauma who is rumored to have worked for the CIA during the Cold War.
During a family reunion, one of his adult children accuses Hirsch’s character, now dying, of adopting kids to perform mind-control experiments on them.
Wechsler produced the film with Shawn R. Singh, and Terry Keefe is co-producer.
Executive producer credits go to Jonathan Sanger, Rick Porras, Wendy Herst and Khush Singh.
The Montreal World Film Festival is set to run Aug. 22 to Sept. 2.
