Blue Caprice

Blue Caprice starring Isaiah Washington, Tequan Richmond, Joey Lauren Adams and Tim Blake Nelson is the striking feature film debut of writer-director Alexandre Moors and co-writer, R.F.I. Porto. Blue Caprice is a harrowing yet restrained psychological thriller about an abandoned boy lured to America into the shadows of a dangerous father figure.

Marked by captivating performances by Isaiah Washington and Tequan Richmond, lyrical camerawork, and a unique and bold structure, Blue Caprice documents the mechanisms that lead its subjects to embrace physical violence. Blue Caprice paints a riveting portrait of 21st-century America and a haunting depiction of two cold-blooded killers that will endure long after the lights come up.
