The Reckless Abandonment Pictures coming-of-age drama What Rhymes With Reason will be released on VOD and EST Feb. 6 and on DVD April 30 from Virgil Films.
Told through a Goonies-like adventure lens, the family-friendly ‘PG-13’ film follows six teens led by the charismatic Jesse Brandt, who enlists his friends to help find a legendary landmark hidden in the wilderness. Together, they navigate the adventure while confronting the darkness within themselves.
The cast includes Gattlin Griffith (“The Boys”), Ricardo Hurtado (School of Rock), Giselle Torres (“The Villains of Valley View”), LaRonn Marzett, Katie Burgess, Juan Graterol and Bart Johnson (High School Musical).
At the film’s center is the subject of depression. What Rhymes With Reason is carefully crafted to break stigmas and encourage much needed conversations surrounding faith and mental health.
The film partnered with 988 Mental Health Lifeline, a nationwide operation that provides a three-digit number to replace the 11-digit National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. The 988 Mental Health Lifeline operates 24/7/365 and offers services for mental health crisis calls. Operators in Oklahoma are licensed and certified health crisis specialists who answer calls and dispatch local services and mobile crisis teams.
