Thousands of Customers. Hundreds of Problems. One Over-Hyped Movie. Three Overwhelmed Employees. "Impressive ... a comic love letter to the modern movie theater. This movie is full of attitude and ambition." - John Monaghan, The Detroit Free Press

Surviving The Rush, the second film from independent filmmaker Sean Farley, is available today on DVD

The DVD of Surviving The Rush is available at http://www.SurvivingtheRush.com, Passion River Films (http://www.passionriver.com), at major retailers such as Best Buy and Netflix, as well as through all major wholesalers, such as Baker & Taylor, VPD, Ingram and Allied/AEC.

Surviving The Rush is the hilarious story of three lone, deeply odd, movie theater employees on the hottest day of the summer when the biggest film of the decade comes, exclusively and without warming, to their theater and the rest of the staff calls in sick. The day spirals out of control as a wild series of events, including rats in the popcorn, broken air-conditioning, a suicidal ticket-taker, health inspections and so much more occurs as these three 'professionals' deal with an increasingly enraged and peculiar public. Forget survival of the fittest. How would you 'survive the rush?"

"I wanted to make an action-comedy involving the everyday person," Farley explains. "In most movies, people are either lawyers, spies, thieves, cops or government agents, and while that is often compelling cinema, I always felt it would be even more rewarding to see how much comedy/action/drama could be squeezed just from the insanely hectic day of a decent, hardworking guy. The Manager isn't trying to save the world, or get the girl. He is just trying to survive the day and do his job the best he can. Anyone who has ever tried to keep twenty plates spinning at once can relate to this material."

SURVIVING THE RUSH, which according to Jim Olenski, author and VIDEOHOUND contributor, is "keenly written and funny with surprising pathos" was a Feature Film winner at the 2006 East Lansing Film Festival and played to sold out crowds in Detroit.

The DVD of SURVIVING THE RUSH is available for order at Passion River Films (http://www.passionriver.com) and through all major wholesalers (Baker & Taylor, VPD, Ingram and Allied/AEC).
