‘Quitters’ Exclusive Trailer & Poster: A Smart-Aleck Teen Escapes His Troubled Home For a New Family

16 June 2016 7:41 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

 

In “Quitters,” young Clark (Ben Konigsberg) is a smart-aleck San Francisco teen who thinks he can outsmart the entire world, but his home life is a mess. His mother (Mira Sorvino) has a prescription pill addiction that lands her in rehab, and Clark doesn’t have much of a relationship with his impatient father (Gregg Germann).

So what does he do? He decides to find a new family, specifically the family of an attractive classmate Natalia (Morgan Turner) who lets Clark temporarily move in as a houseguest. When conflict inevitably arises, it’s up to Clark to face up to the reality of his situation. The film also stars Kara Hayward (“Moonrise Kingdom”), Kieran Culkin (“Margaret”), Saffron Burrows (“Mozart in the Jungle”), and Scott Lawrence (“Jag”). Watch an exclusive trailer for “Quitters” above.

Quitters” is the debut feature from director Noah Pritzker who also co-wrote the script with Ben Tarnoff. Pritzker recently told IndieWire, “‘Quitters’ initially came out of a short I was writing while at film school. The short focused on Clark’s family, and I was eager to keep writing and see where Clark would go and show more of the San Francisco world he would travel through. At the time, Ben Tarnoff – who I wrote the movie with – was writing a book about 19th century San Francisco. We both grew up there, went to the same high school, and were both drawn to the idea of writing about the city.”

“My short film ‘Little Dad’ got into SXSW while we were finishing a draft of ‘Quitters,’ which helped us get the movie made,” he added. “One of the first people to come on board was our casting director Doug Aibel. He and his team looked far and wide for the main character, played by Ben Konigsberg, whose performance as Clark defines the film.”

The film premiered at last year’s South by Southwest Festival. Star Ben Konigsberg is best known for his role as Yusef on the Netflix original series “Orange is the New Black” as well as Hal in Tim Blake Nelson’s latest film “Anesthesia.”

Quitters” opens in select theaters and VOD on July 22. Check out a poster from the film below.

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy

7 June 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Emmy voters love Allison Janney, who already has a total of six statuettes for her work on three different shows — “The West Wing,” “Mom” and “Masters of Sex.” Janney looks to be a sure thing to land a third consecutive nomination for her work on “Mom” this year, having won the last two years in a row.

Can anyone overtake Janney? Perhaps previous winner Julie Bowen, who continues to score nominations even when other “Modern Family” co-stars have dropped off the list. If there’s a surge of love for the former champ, her co-star Sofia Vergara could also score another nomination.

There are plenty of previous nominees who have yet to win, including Mayim Bialik (“The Big Bang Theory”), Anna Chlumsky (“Veep”), Gaby Hoffmann (“Transparent”), Jane Krakowski (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”) and Niecy Nash (“Getting On”). Hoffmann’s co-stars Judith Light and Amy Landecker also had standout years, while HBO »
