Palm Pictures will be releasing The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things in June, based on the novel by the exposed faux writer JT Leroy.
Seven-year-old Jeremiah (Jimmy Bennett) lived a calm, comfortable life in the care of a loving foster home until the day his birth mother Sarah (Argento) suddenly showed up to reclaim him. Torn from the life he knew, Jeremiah is drawn into his mother’s reckless world of turmoil and depravity, and into a desperate struggle to survive the madness of his surroundings.
Writen and directed by Asia Argento, the DVD will be released with an exclusive Limited Edition Photography Book “Exposing a Hoax: Exclusives, Rarities and Fabrications,” featuring pictures by legendary rock ‘n roll photographer Mick Rock. The photography will be presented in a high quality, 24-page booklet inserted inside the DVD jacket and will contain key excerpts from the many newspaper and magazine features on the hoax along with some personal quotes from the filmmakers and, of course, from Mick Rock.
Also included will be a Commentary Track by Asia Argento and producer Chris Hanley. Furhter, footage from the Theatrical Premiere will be included and a Featurette on writer JT Leroy, entitled “JT Undercover,” featuring exclusive and quite candid video footage of the JT Leroy camp in action at parties, book readings and interviews. The release will be rounded out by the original US Theatrical Trailer and previews.
“The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things” will be in stores on
