Film Shot In West Michigan Premieres In September [Video]
'UP ON THE GLASS' was shot in Oceana County in and around the Silver Lake sand dunes.
The movie, described as an 'arthouse thriller' is currently available for pre-order on Amazon and iTunes, with the streaming release date September 8.
The film was produced by the Michigan based production company Save Them Wild Dogs and stars Chase Fein (On the Rocks) and co-stars Chelsea Kurtz (Scandal, Longmire) and Hunter Cross (Suburban Swingers Club).
UP ON THE GLASS offers “a timely discussion of class dynamics in America against the backdrop of Oceana County and a dangerous love triangle,” states a press release from the producers.
An article in the Oceana County Press described the movie as :
“...reminiscent of the thriller THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY, UP ON THE GLASS is about a wanderer named Jack DiMercurio who secretly desires the life and wife of his more affluent friend, Andy Shelton. Past tensions surface between the two men during an informal reunion at Andy’s cottage on Lake Michigan. One heinous act allows Jack to draw close to Andy’s wife Liz, but Jack finds living Andy’s life is a dangerous lie."
Nikki (Brown) Del Principe, who co-wrote the movie with her husband Kevin, grew up in Grand Rapids and went to film school at the University of Southern California. She spent summers in Oceana County when she was younger.
“The Midwest is all too often portrayed as flyover territory,” Nikki Del Principe was quoted in the Oceana County Press. “The reality is that the region is vibrant both in urban and rural areas. Having been raised in Grand Rapids and spent summers on the shores of Lake Michigan in Oceana County, I have a deep appreciation for this area and its people. I’m excited to share the beauty of this place and community in UP ON THE GLASS.
