This year’s Tribeca Film Festival will not only be remembered for its impressive array of films, but also for a number of controversial firsts. An airline commercial was pulled from showing, reporters were infuriated to find James Franco and Shai LaBeouf absent from a red carpet premiere, and the new Immersive Storyscapes feature allowed audiences to experience virtual reality in an all new way.

Directing brothers Ben and Joshua Safdie (The Black Baloon, Lenny Cooke) will see their dramatic 2014 hit Heaven Knows What opening in theaters this May 29th. The film received recognition at the Venice Film Festival last year and was also shown at this year’s SXSW Festival. Adapted by Joshua and fellow screenwriter Ronald Bronstein (Frownland, Go Get Some Rosemary) from a book by Arielle Holmes (Winter’s Dream), the story follows Harley and Ilya (played by author Arielle Holmes), the latter of whom struggles with heroin addiction, but who, at Harley’s request to prove her love, slits her wrists to save herself and their relationship in this intense psychological drama. Holmes based the book and character on her real-life experiences as a heroin addict and the lengths she and her fellow users would go to in order to get their fix. Making up the supporting cast are actors Caleb Landry Jones (No Country For Old Men, X-Men: First Class), and Eleanore Hendricks (A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints, Nancy Please). The movie opens in theaters nationwide this May 29th, and from the looks of the trailer it will be pretty intense. The trailer alone will take you back to 2000’s hard-hitting drug-drama Requiem For A Dream. Check it out here on MADE!
