Lonely Hearts - Closing Night Film
Lonely Hearts Closing Night Film
USA, 106 MIN, L.A. PREMIERE
Director: Todd Robinson
Writer: Todd Robinson
Producer: Holly Wiersma, Boaz Davidson
Starring: John Travolta, James Gandolfini, Salma Hayek, Jared Leto, Laura Dern, Scott Caan

In a story that could be called uglier than Bonnie and Clyde, America's notorious ""Lonely Hearts Killers"" Martha Beck (Salma Hayek) and Ray Fernandez (Jared Leto) committed as many as 20 murders during the late 1940's. With Martha posing as Ray's sister, the lovers would respond to personal ads of war widows and spinsters. Showering the lonely women with attention, Ray would gain their confidence and then the pair would swindle them out of their savings, often killing them. But when two New York detectives Elmer C. Robinson (John Travolta) and Charles Hildebrandt (James Gandolfini)  begin investigating one of the murders, the case gets personal. Robinson, who is struggling with his wife's recent suicide, sees the case as a way to answer questions of accountability, and to better understand his relationship with his son. Together the partners slowly put together the pieces of this gruesome puzzle and determine that this was not an isolated murder, but one of many.
