Some secrets are better left unseen.

The Joseph Ruben-directed Blindsided, formerly titled Penthouse North has finally gotten a release date from Cinedigm, its distributor. The film, starring Michael Keaton and Michelle Monaghan, comes to DVD and Digital HD on June 2.

Blindsided follows Sara, a blind journalist who’s taken hostage by murderous thieves who believe she’s hiding diamonds.

I have to say, the film’s tagline, “some secrets are better left unseen”, is unfortunate. Hopefully it’s good enough that it avoids jokes from critics about the film itself being better left unseen.

The synopsis:

It’s New Year’s Eve in New York City and everyone’s getting ready to party. Watching, waiting, a man called Hollander (Michael Keaton) has a different kind of party in mind. Alone in her high-rise apartment, Sara (Michelle Monaghan) has no idea that her boyfriend was a thief. But what he stole – and from whom – is about to put her life on the line. Trapped in the penthouse with Hollander and his sadistic partner, these two will kill, maim, tear the place apart to find a fortune in diamonds. While the party rages outside, inside Sara fights desperately for her life. It’s kill or be killed in a pulse-pounding, non-stop fight to the finish.
