I love a good indie project and The Discoverers looks like a clever, quirky work of all kinds of goodness. The film focuses around washed-up history professor Lewis Birch (Griffin Dunne) who takes his teenage kids – Zoe (Madeleine Martin) and Jack (Devon Graye) – on a road trip to a conference in hopes of putting his career back on track.

It’s also just picked up a few official plaudits at the Genart(ist) Emerging Actor Awards, which celebrates upcoming talent on all sides, where Madeleine Martin (who you might recognise as Becca from the excellent Californication »
