A few days ago, Alliance Vivafilm, a film distributor, released the first poster of Funkytown, a film helmed by acclaimed director Daniel Roby (La peau blanche) and penned by Steve Galluccio (Mambo Italiano).
In the 1970s, Montreal was the wealthiest city in Canada and was at the centre of the disco movement. The film follows the life of a bunch of successful people who are destroying themselves.
The film - which was made with a budget of $7.3 million - reunites a star-studded cast: Patrick Huard, Paul Doucet, Sarah Mutch, Justin Chatwin, Raymond Bouchard, Genevieve L'Esperance, Janine Theriault, Romina D'Ugo, Geneviève Brouillette, Lina Roessler, François Létourneau, Sophie Cadieux and many more.
Finally, the film will be released in Quebec's theatres on December 17, 2010.
