Review: Ten Thousand Saints with Ethan Hawke and Asa Butterfield - Sundance 2015

27 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

When looking for a good independent film at Sundance, there are a lot of hot topics the movies tend to focus on. These topics range from coming-of-age stories to stories surrounding death, or ones dealing with heavy issues like drugs, teen pregnancy, homosexuality, homelessness, and poor parenting. Ten Thousand Saints is a film that manages to comfortably fit all these issues into one movie and still have room for some good laughs.

Ten Thousand Saints follows the story of a drug using teenager named Jude, played by Asa Butterfield, who, after a life-changing tragedy, is sent to New York by his mother to live with his pot-smoking father, Les (Ethan Hawke), who left them when Jude was nine. While there, Jude begins to clean up his life and gets to know his father more, as well as making friends with his father's girlfriend's daughter and his best friend's straight-edge brother. »

Alessandro Nivola On ‘Selma’, ‘Violent Year’ And Bradley Cooper: Conversations With Jeremy Gerard

26 January 2015 1:46 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: It’s tempting to say that Alessandro Nivola lives a charmed life, and that might be true if he weren’t working so hard. He’s Zelig in plain sight: At this moment in time you can see him in Selma as Justice Department civil rights lawyer John Doar, who would become the lead prosecutor in the government’s case against the murders of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner. And you can see him on the other side of the mirror, as a mobbed-up oil distributor and bete noir of Oscar Isaacs in A Most Violent Year. He played another nemesis, FBI agent Anthony Amado, on the trail of Bradley Cooper in American Hustle. And he’s still batting it around with Cooper, but now on Broadway, where he plays Frederick Treves, the humanistic doctor who rescues Cooper’s John Merrick ­­– Aka the Elephant Man – from life in a freak show booth. »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Ten Thousand Saints’

24 January 2015 10:35 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A love letter to a bygone era of New York City, namely the late ‘80s, “Ten Thousand Saints” sees directing duo Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini returning to a more personal approach to filmmaking — or at least as personal as possible when adapting another’s material, in this case the debut novel by author Eleanor Henderson. Part teen romance, part awkward love triangle, part generational-clash portrait, and almost all powered by nostalgia, this warmly conceived dramedy will likely resonate strongest with audiences who have a direct connection to the story’s place and time. Otherwise, there’s not much to suggest a theatrical windfall, and only slightly better odds in ancillary.

The story actually kicks off in 1980 Vermont, on a particularly eventful night for young hero Jude (Henry Kelemen). He’s hit with a double whammy: His no-nonsense mom, Harriet (Julianne Nicholson), has kicked his hippie dad, Les (Ethan Hawke »

Sundance Reviews: Literary Lions, Troubled Teens, Lithuanian Lesbians

24 January 2015 9:36 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

A first sampling of Sundance offerings reveals illuminating documentaries and compelling, if not perfect, narratives

A bit of friendly advice to the producers of “Ten Thousand Saints”: Please, please, please get rid of the opening narration in which the protagonist observes that life is like a river. It’s the worst line of dialogue in the whole movie, and it starts the proceedings off with a cringe.

Luckily, the script (by directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, adapting the novel by Eleanor Henderson) gets better from there. After the death of his best friend Teddy (Avan Jogia, also »

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, when many of Hollywood’s big hitters gather together to be awarded a variety of different prices on the Awards circuit, culminating with the 87th Academy Awards on February 22nd.

Staff Writer Scott Davis takes a look at some of the films making their debuts, and digs deep to find the next gems that could be coming out way in 2015.

A Walk in the Woods
