Veteran writer/director Bobby Moresco returns with the action-filled crime thriller Bent starring Karl Urban (And Soon the Darkness), Sofia Vergara (TV’s Modern Family), Grace Byers (TV’s Empire) and Andy Garcia (City Island).

When a drug bust goes wrong, ex-cop Danny Gallagher’s (Urban) quest for justice leads him to the car-bomb murder of a government official’s wife. As Gallagher learns that the woman’s secret lover was a seductive federal agent (Vergara) he finds himself discredited and imprisoned. After his release, he quickly finds himself again under fire. But from whom — his own cops, a vengeful drug lord, the CIA, or maybe someone even more ruthless…?

Based on characters created by novelist J.P. O’Donnell, the film carries a rating of R.

Keep your eyes open for a brief appearance by Vincent Spano (Rumble Fish) as Urban’s ill-fated partner…oh, and for a Sofia Vergara shower scene that’s been floating around the internet since it was film over a year ago!

Bonus features include a handful of cast and crew interviews and a behind-the-scenes featurette.
