In this modern day fairy tale thrill ride, Kevin and Ro challenge each other to find meaning in their lives by daring one another to do the things they’re most afraid of. They quit their jobs, sell their possessions and steal to make ends meet. As they get closer, their reckless and provocative dares, which at first brought them together, threaten to destroy their relationship. In the spirit of TRUE ROMANCE and BONNIE & CLYDE, these young lovers test the boundaries.

At long last! Jeff Winner's SATELLITE, starring Stephanie Szostak and Karl Geary, is now available to the general public! Catch the film on iTunes, Amazon or OnDemand!

An Official Selection at the 2005 Tribeca Film Festival, SATELLITE was hailed by critics at festival screenings and during its theatrical run. Particular attention was paid to Stephanie Szostak, a rising star at the time, whose career has since blossomed with roles in blockbusters such as WE BOUGHT A ZOO, THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, DINNER FOR SCHMUCKS, IRON MAN 3 and R.I.P.D to name a few.

"a captivating romantic fairy tale for grown-ups... a springboard for the careers of its writer and director, Jeff Winner, and its smoldering star, Stephanie Szostak. ... It captures the wistful underside of the rampant materialism embraced by the young professional class. Fervently believing in unconditional love, it puts it to the test, and it passes, but just barely. After all, it is a fairy tale."
Stephen Holden, The NewYorkTimes
