What’s up New Year’s weekend? If you’re looking for a gripping thriller, the award-winning film The Word, shot mostly in Bridgeport, was recently released on Amazon. Order it here.
The film premiered at the Bijou Theatre a few years ago. It follows the story of a father avenging his son’s murder carried out by a sacrificial religious sect.
