The Canyons

Notorious writer Bret Easton Ellis ("American Psycho") and acclaimed director Paul Schrader ("Auto Focus") join forces for this explicitly erotic thriller about youth, glamour, sex and surveillance. Manipulative and scheming young movie producer Christian (adult film star James Deen) makes films to keep his trust fund intact, while his actress girlfriend and bored plaything, Tara (Lindsay Lohan), hides a passionate affair with an actor from her past. When Christian becomes aware of Tara's infidelity, the young lovers are thrust into a violent, sexually-charged tour through the dark side of human nature. A thought-provoking examination of privilege run amok.
