Muhammad-Malvo story a hit at Sundance

Blue-Caprice-PosterTacoma’s coming to the big screen, and maybe not in a great way.

The New York Times had a blurb today about a new movie, “Blue Caprice,” that is getting very good reviews at the Sundance Film Festival. Click here to go to the film’s website. It’s about the relationship of the Beltway Snipers – John A. Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo. The former is portrayed by “Grey’s Anatomy” alum Isaiah Washington, whom the Times describes as “ferociously magnetic” as Muhammad.

Apparently much of the film is about their time in Tacoma, but I can’t tell from the publicity material whether any of it was actually shot here. I think we would have heard about it if that had been the case.

To read a Hollywood Reporter review, click here. Its bottom line: ” A riveting first feature of startling maturity and intelligence.”
