A mysterious drifter, a town with troubles, secrets will be revealed and the question on everyone’s lips will be answered; Who is Sam Doonby?

Riverhorse Entertainment and MJM Entertainment are excited to announce the upcoming Limited Release of Doonby in eight theaters in Texas, Mississippi and Tennessee.

Doonby highlights an all-star cast including John Schneider (Dukes of Hazard, Smallville), Jennifer Gotzon (Frost Nixon), Robert Davi, Ernie Hudson, Jennifer O’Neill, Will Wallace, and Joe Estevez. Written and directed by British filmmaker Peter Mackenzie the film was shot on location in Smithsville, Texas.

The film opens with, Sam Doonby, a mysterious, handsome drifter getting off a greyhound bus in a small Texas town and finding work at Leroy’s Country/Blues Bar where his great musical talents make him very popular, especially with Laura, the beautiful but spoiled daughter of successful doctor Cyrus Reaper. Sam always seems to be in the right place at the right time to avert disasters befalling the town and its people until suspicion and jealousy drive folks to ask who he is and where he comes from. Even Laura starts to question him. Sam disappears as quickly as he came and things start to go terribly wrong. Sam’s rejection results in a series of shocks for the whole town, especially for the town’s doctor as Cyrus’ past comes back to haunt him.

An emotional storyline, Doonby questions the impact we each have on other’s lives. Sam Doonby’s truly is ‘a story worth telling, and a life worth living.’

The Limited Release will mark the first time the film will be seen by the general public before its nation wide release in late spring of 2012.
