The ensemble cast of Shiloh Fernandez (Evil Dead), Mary-Louise Parker (TV’s Weeds), Chris Noth (TV’s Sex and The City), Ashley Benson (TV’s Pretty Little Liars), Josh Peck (Ice Age franchise) and Addison Timlin (The Awkward Moment) star in the comedy-drama Chronically Metropolitan, directed by Xavier Manrique.

A year after his disastrous writing debut, young author Fenton Dillane (Fernandez) returns to his hometown, New York City, with the hope of winning back the love of his life, Jessie (Benson), and to make up with his estranged parents. Instead, he finds his father (Noth) embroiled in a scandal involving lobsters and coeds, his mother (Parker) buying drugs from his best friend (Peck), and Jessie engaged to marry someone else. Yikes….

This one was gutted upon its limited theatrical release in early August, garnering a 33% Fresh Rating at Rotten Tomatoes.

As bonus features, the discs include an alternate ending, deleted scenes, and a behind-the-scenes featurette.
