Soaked In Bleach (Kurt Cobain Movie)

Soaked In Bleach Release Date: 2014 Director: Benjamin Statler Cast: Daniel Roebuck, August Emerson, Sarah Scott Genre: Drama Country: USA More than twenty years after the death / tragic loss of Kurt Cobain many still question the Seattle Police Department's case conclusion of suicide. In opposition to the suicide ruling Soaked In Bleach is the second film (following director Nick Broomfield's Kurt and Courtney) to question "Who Killed Kurt Cobain?" As with Broomfield's film many in #SIB question possible motives of Cobain's widow Courtney Love. New facts observations and opinions are allegedly revealed in this forthcoming film. Specific release dates have yet to be announced. Born: Kurt Donald Cobain February 20, 1967 (Aberdeen, Washington, USA) Died: April 5, 1994 (Seattle, Washington, USA) Cobain was 27 years old. Synopsis provided by director Benjamin Statler: Soaked In Bleach reveals the events behind Kurt Cobain's death as seen through the eyes of Tom Grant, the private investigator that was hired by Courtney Love in 1994 to track down her missing husband (Kurt Cobain) only days before his deceased body was found at their Seattle home. Cobain's death was ruled a suicide by the police (a reported self-inflicted gunshot wound), but doubts have circulated for twenty years as to the legitimacy of this ruling, especially due to the work of Mr. Grant, a former L.A. County Sheriff's detective, who did his own investigation and determined there was significant empirical and circumstantial evidence to conclude that foul play could very well have occurred. The film develops as a narrative mystery with cinematic re-creations, interviews with key experts and witnesses and the examination of official artifacts from the 1994 case.
