Chelsea Kurtz enjoys taking breaks from theater and television shows.

When the opportunity to join indie thriller Up On The Glass came along, she jumped at playing someone entirely different.

Some described the film as reminiscent of The Talented Mr. Ripley, the film is about a wanderer named Jack DiMercurio who secretly desires the life and wife of his more affluent friend, Andy Shelton. Past tensions surface between the two men during an informal reunion at Andy’s cottage on Lake Michigan. One heinous act allows Jack to draw close to Andy’s wife Liz, but Jack finds living Andy’s life is a dangerous lie.

The dangerous love triangle movie stars Kurtz as the conflicted wife who has feelings for her friend and husband. It also stars Chase Fein (On the Rocks), and Steve Holm (Those Who Kill).

Kevin Del Principe directed and co-wrote the script with Nikki Brown.

In a press release, Del Principe expressed, “Growing up in a blue-collar family, the idea that pursuit of higher education would lead to a better life was imbued in me. For so many of my generation, this has not been the case due to a variety of economic and social factors. The main character in Up On The Glass, Jack, has tried to rise in America but it has not worked out as he’s hoped. Subsequently, he feels lost, distanced from his peers, and from the elite institutions that allowed him entry but have not enabled him to climb in them accordingly. Characters like Jack deserve a voice because he embodies so many who have strived but been left behind. For Jack, the pressure he feels due to his class situation and the lack of trust he has in institutions leads to devastating consequences.”

LRM Online exclusively interviewed actress Chelsea Kurtz on her role in the film.

Kurtz has numerous television roles over the years. She played Black Bison in the comic series CW’s The Flash, XO Cobb in TNT’s The Last Ship, and Jennifer Fields in ABC’s Scandal. Also, she has appeared in other television shows such as The Resident, Magnum P.I., and Longmire.

Up On The Glass is available One Demand, DVD, and Blu-ray today.
