Grand PianoAn official selection of the 2013 Fantastic Fest, independent film Grand Piano got much acclaim from critics.

The thriller stars Elijah Wood (The Lord of the Rings movies) as Tom Selznick, the most talented pianist of his generation, whose stage fright let to a catastrophic performance and sent him into seclusion. Years later, he’s ready to give his comeback performance. In front of a packed theater, he’s about to begin when he sees a message written on the score: “Play one wrong note and you die.”

Tom must figure out who’s threatening him and get help, all while never leaving the piano.

John Cusack (Hot Tub Time Machine) also stars in the R-rated movie, which was written by Damien Chazelle (Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench) and directed by Eugenio Mira (Agnosia), who’s also a composer.

Critics loved Grand Piano, giving it 81% approval, according to Rotten Tomatoes, but moviegoers were more wary, offering up only 53% of love. The film was released in only a handful of theaters in the U.S.

The Blu-ray and DVD carry two featurettes, a behind-the-scenes and “AXS TV: A Look at Grand Piano.”
