THE OPPORTUNIST

OFFICIAL SELECTION: Critics' Week, Cannes Film Festival

A night in the life of a social shape-shifter addicted to the visceral thrill of invading the lives of others. Bureau of Ships Presents "The Opportunist" Written and Directed by David Lassiter Produced by Alberto Roldán and Cate Smierciak Starring Nick Clifford Featuring Music by Gesaffelstein & Brodinski www.opportunistfilm.com

"One of the strengths of The Opportunist is its central character, whose bad energy drives the film forwards and reveals a very talented actor. This flamboyantly unpleasant character progressively makes us believe he is capable of anything, as he moves through a night in which his opportunism seems motivated by a Machiavellian rage. The film leaves us hanging on every word uttered by this new Patrick Bateman with whom he shares a sort of nihilistic anxiety. David Lassiter promises a film which displays all the power of genre and subtly allowing us to get attached to the characters." --Fabien Gaffez, Programmer - Semaine de la Critique - Cannes (Critics' Week)
