For those looking to do something later this week in New York, Emerging Pictures will be holding a special screening for their upcoming film Laura Smiles Thursday, July 26th @ 7:30 at Tribeca Cinemas (54 Varick St.). To RSVP call 212-245-6767 or email distribution@emergingpictures.com.

Here’s a brief synopsis:

The film tells the story of one woman’s attempt to reinvent her life after a personal tragedy. It takes many years, but finally the dormant emotions that this tragedy has inspired find their way to the surface, causing Laura’s life to spiral out of control. Violence, sex and other forms of self-destructive behavior become her method for dealing with these long repressed feelings. When all else fails, she runs to the only place that is safe — the past.

The film stars Kip Pardue, Jonathan Silverman, Mark Derwin and Petra Wright as Laura and is directed by Jason Ruscio. It has gained much buzz on the regional fest circuit, playing at Tribeca, The Hamptons and winning Best Dramatic Feature at the Vail Film Festival along with an Emerging Filmmaker prize at the Denver Film Festival.
