The Two Gay Geeks received this Press Release from Alex Haughey, who Co-Directed the film, Prodigy.

This is really exciting news for the Prodigy Team.

We interviewed Alex and Brian in Episode 158.





The feature film Prodigy makes its Netflix debut on Wednesday, August 22. This “little
indie that could” has chugged all the way to the top of the streaming food chain.
Released by Gravitas Ventures in March, the title performed so well On Demand, it
caught the eye of the industry giant when it came time to find a more permanent home.
Prodigy is a contained, psychological thriller with some Twilight Zone-esq edge. Here is
a brief synopsis:

A discrete branch of the military calls upon psychologist James Fonda to take the
case of a dangerous patient, nine-year-old Ellie. As their session begins, the
young girl dissects Dr. Fonda’s unconventional methods, revealing her
genius-level intellect. Only by challenging her to a battle of wits does Fonda
begin to unravel the supernatural mystery surrounding Ellie — a deadly secret
that threatens to destroy them both.

Prodigy wrapped an eventful festival run last year, accepting invites to nine festivals,
including trips to Cinequest, Fantaspoa (Brazil) and Santa Cruz — where the film took
home Best Narrative Feature honors. The film carried that success into its digital
release, drawing a broad audience on Amazon, and maintaining a fresh Rotten
Tomatoes score.

Written and directed by Alex Haughey and Brian Vidal, the film stars Richard Neil
( Veronica Mars , Horizon Zero Dawn ) and introduces 9-year-old Savannah Liles in the
titular role. Savannah has received universal praise for her work, and recently won both
a Young Entertainer and Young Artist Award for her performance as a “miniature
Hannibal Lecter”.
