In such works as LESS THAN ZERO and AMERICAN PSYCHO Brett Easton Ellis brilliantly dissects contemporary American society, a culture in which too much is never enough. Adapting his own acclaimed novel for the screen, THE INFORMERS is a multi-strand narrative, which follows various characters from all walks of life - from the successful Hollywood dream merchant, a dissolute rock star and aging newscaster to those at the bottom - a voyeuristic doorman and an unscrupulous ex-con.
Connecting all his intertwining strands are the typical Ellis protagonists - a group of beautiful, blonde men and women, living their young lives with wild abandonment partying and doing drugs, connect all the intertwining strands, never realising that they are playing with fire.
Filmed with uncommon glamour and grit by acclaimed Australian director Gregor Jordan (NED KELLY, BUFFALO SOLDIERS), THE INFORMERS is an alternately blistering and chilling portrait of hedonism run amuck.
