DVD Pick of the Week: Ash Christian’s “Petunia”
I saw Petunia more than a year ago at Outfest and was just blown away by Christine Lahti’s performance.
The movie is out on DVD today and comes from filmmaker Ash Christian whose movie Fat Girls remains one of my all-time Outfest favorites.
That was back in 2006 and it won Ash the Outfest Emerging Talent Award.
His follow-up movie is a Woody Allen-esque comedy in which family dysfunction and sexual confusion abound.
Ash managed to line up a quite a stellar cast for this movie in addition to Miss Lahti. It includes Ugly Betty alum Michael Urie, Thora Birch, Brittany Snow and hunky Greg In Hollywood Morning Man alum Jimmy Heck.
