BEVERLY HILLS, CA – Anchor Bay Films announced today the DVD release of the heartwarming and hilarious family film Lake Effects, produced by Sara Elizabeth Timmins and directed by Michael J. McKay. Led by two-time Golden Globe® award winner Jane Seymour (Wedding Crashers, “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman”), the film’s talented ensemble cast also features Scottie Thompson (Skyline, Star Trek), Madeline Zima (A Cinderella Story, “Californication”), Jeff Fahey (Silverado, “One Life to Live”), Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers, Sleepy Hollow), and Sean Patrick Flannery (The Boondock Saints franchise, “The Young and the Restless”). An Official Selection of the 2012 Omaha and Appalachian Film Festivals, Lake Effects heads to DVD on August 14th for an SPR of $19.98.
Lake Effects also stars Eyal Podell (“24”), Ben Savage (“Boy Meets World”), Richard Moll (“Night Court”), Richard Riehle (Office Space), and Ron Canada (Wedding Crashers). The DVD will include an extended version of the film, which premiered as a Hallmark Movie Channel Original, on May 6. Shot entirely on location, Lake Effects was inspired by the Smith Mountain Lake Community in Virginia and showcases Smith Mountain Lake’s real venues, businesses and homes, with actual residents making appearances.
In Lake Effects, Sara (Scottie Thomson) and Lily (Madeline Zima) are two sisters from a small, lakeside town that lead two different lives: Sara, a successful Los Angeles attorney and Lily, a local art teacher who never left home. But when the father of the two sisters (Jeff Fahey) unexpectedly dies, Sara returns to her childhood home – on the enchanting Smith Mountain Lake – to help settle his estate. Through the guidance of their father’s spirit, the two women and their mother, Vivian (Jane Seymour), will finally discover what being a family truly means.
