A grungy indy flick that Kaley Cuoco filmed last year has finally made its way to cinema screens and it looks like it will give us an insight into a much darker side of the Big Bang Theory star's acting repertoire.
Burning Bodhi is about a group of friends who return to their hometown after they discover one of their high school friends has died and according to the writer and director, Matthew McDuffie:
"This film is about your first dead friend. It’s about grief and laughter, and celebrating life, about growing up; whatever that means.”
Cuoco, who filmed her scenes during a week-long break in her grueling Big Bang Theory schedule is clearly proud of the role because she loaded a picture of herself sporting some heavy smokey eyes on her Instagram.
According to the director's glowing review of Kaley's performance, it seems like she has every reason to celebrate, McDuffie told interviewers that:
"We got her for seven days. She immediately came on set ready to work. The role was something very different for her and she became Katy. It was incredible to see her transformation."
Anyone wanting to see Cuoco's incredible transformation with their own eyes will have a while to wait though, the movie premiered last night at the Austin Film Festival and there is no information about where/when fans can see it just yet.
One thing's for sure, Kaley looked radiant at the premiere and it's awesome to see her extending her acting repertoire:
The movie also stars Sasha Pieterse, Meghann Fahy, Eli Varga, and Virginia Madsen and more information can be found HERE.
