Rami Malek is split in two in the trailer for genre-bending mystery-thriller, Buster’s Mal Heart.
Buster’s Mal Heart is written and directed by Sarah Adina Smith (The Midnight Swim) and stars Primetime Emmy award winning Actor Rami Malek, who is known for his lead role in Mr. Robot. The film originally premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, Go USA Entertainment later picked up the rights to the title in North America and other territories, making it possible for the film to receive a theatrical release in the USA.
The bold thriller is described as being peppered with dark humour and interlocking mystery. The film follows an eccentric mountain man (Rami Malek) who is on the run from the authorities, surviving the winter by breaking into empty vacation homes.
Buster (Malek) was once known as Jonah, a hard-working husband and father whose job as the night-shift concierge at a hotel took a toll on his psyche and, consequently his marriage – until a chance encounter with a conspiracy-obsessed drifter changed the course of their lives forever.
Regularly calling into radio talk shows – where he has acquired the nickname ‘buster’ – Jonah rants about the impending inversion at the turn of the millennium. In the present-day Buster is haunted by visions of being lost at sea and his former life as a family man. As he drifts from house to house, eluding the local sheriff at every turn we gradually piece together the events that fractured his life and left him alone on top of a snowy mountain or perhaps in a small rowboat in the middle of a vast ocean — or both.
Buster’s Mal Heart stars Rami Malek, DJ Qualls (The Man in the High Castle), Kate Lyn Sheil (You’re Next), Lin Shaye (Insidious) and Toby Huss (King of the Hill).
The thriller will be theatrically released in the USA on April 28
