Blue Caprice

Blue Caprice Information

Blue Caprice is a 2013 American independent drama film directed by Alexandre Moors. It recounts the story of an abandoned boy who is lured to America and drawn into the shadow of a dangerous father figure in this film inspired by the real life events that led to the 2002 Beltway sniper attacks. The film stars Isaiah Washington, Tequan Richmond, Joey Lauren Adams, Tim Blake Nelson and Leo Fitzpatrick.

Blue Caprice debuted at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. The film was released in theaters on Sept 13, 2013.


Blue Caprice is inspired by the Beltway sniper attacks during which two men, John Muhammad and Lee Malvo, conducted a siege of terror on the Washington, D.C., area. Their method: a series of random shootings in public places. Their weapon: a sniper rifle, fired from the trunk of a blue Chevrolet Caprice. The film investigates the genesis of those horrific events from the point of view of the two shooters, whose distorted father-son relationship facilitated their long and bloody journey across America.

After premiering at Sundance, IFC's Sundance Selects acquired domestic distribution rights.
