Here’s a must-watch indie film for music lovers: Wristcutters: A Love Story is now On Demand (watch it on HBO Go). The dark comedy, starring Patrick Fugit, Shea Whigham, Shannyn Sossamon and Tom Waits is available through June 30, so don’t miss it. The soundtrack released by Lakeshore Records features tracks from Joy Division, Gogol Bordello, Mikal Lasarev, Del Shannon, Screaming Lord Sutch and a score by Composer Bobby Johnston (No Impact Man). Wristcutters was an indie film festival favorite and received a nomination for the Grand Jury Award at the Sundance Film Festival (2006).
The very music-centric cast (besides musician Tom Waits, Patrick Fugit played a rock journalist in “Almost Famous” and Shannyn Sossamon is a DJ-turned-actor) rounds out this endearing love story set in the afterlife.
