James Franco’s THE ADDERALL DIARIES arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD from Lionsgate today. The tagline touts that it’s “a twisted journey through sex, drugs and lies,” and would you expect anything less from the multi-hyphenated James Franco? Of course not. It’s edgy and compelling, and the story sucks you right in. Plus, I’ve always been a Franco fan.
Theatrically released by A24, the film stars Academy Award® nominee Franco (Best Actor, 127 Hours, 2010), along with four-time Academy Award® nominee Ed Harris (Best Supporting Actor, Apollo 13, 1995), Amber Heard (The Danish Girl), with Cynthia Nixon (HBO’s “Sex and the City”), and Golden Globe® winner Christian Slater (TV’s “Mr. Robot”).
Nominated for Best Narrative Feature at the Tribeca Film Festival, The Adderall Diaries is written and directed by Pamela Romanowsky (The Color of Time) and executive produced by Robert Redford (A Walk in the Woods). In short, pretty good creds, and Franco delivers as a famous but troubled author whose fascination with a high-profile murder case brings his own dark past into focus.
Based on the best-selling book by Stephen Elliott, The Adderall Diaries follows one man’s desperate journey through sex, drugs, and lies as he tries to separate fact from fiction and ignite a life-changing romance. Ed Harris and Amber Heard costar in this gritty story about the shocking discoveries that lie beneath the truth.
The home entertainment release of The Adderall Diaries includes audio commentary with the director, a behind-the-scenes featurette, and deleted scenes. The Adderall Diaries is available on Blu-ray and DVD for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.
