Isaiah Washington plays an ex con in The Sin Seer

A taut script with a slow-build and a surprisingly nasty finale is the best way to sum up Isaiah Washington’s latest project “The Sin Seer.”

Directed and written by Paul D. Hannah (“The Marriage Chronicles”), Washington, who doubles as producer and star, plays an ex-con-turned-private eye who solves cases with the help of a psychic played by Lisa Arrindell Anderson

“The story intrigued me and I thought it was a very clever concept,” says the actor who previously worked with Anderson on the Spike Lee film “Clockers.” “I haven’t really seen a lot of people of color doing these types of films. I knew the execution would be challenging and I was excited to work with Lisa again.”

The film follows Anderson, whose character Rose Ricard has the ability to see into people’s souls and detect lies. With this ability, she works as a private investigator, solving “cold” cases the police can’t unravel. Along with her partner, ex-con Grant Summit (Washington), she takes on a case that tracks a murderer. This threatens to reveal long-buried secrets from her own past and despite her psychic abilities, she’s unable to see the danger ahead.

A suspenseful thriller, which builds to a tremendous crescendo, the film also stars Richard Brooks, C. Thomas Howell, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Gregory Alan Williams and Michael Ironside.

For the actor, writer, producer and philanthropist who has appeared in numerous films that include “Love Jones,” “Crooklyn,” “Bulworth,”

“Girl 6” and “Get on the Bus,” this thriller marks his next feature as producer having produced the engaging dramas “Blackbird” and “Blue Caprice.”

“As a producer I am starting off small,” Washington continues. “You have to crawl before you can walk and I am trying to be a part of content that is interesting to me. If you enjoy “Blackbird” “Blue Caprice” and “The Sin Seer” then that means I am on the right track.”

A dark and twisted gem of a thriller with a gut-punch of an ending “The Sin Seer” is currently out on DVD and digital video.
