Sundance Festival: Robert Redford, Nick Nolte & Nick Offerman on friendship, nature, and Paul Newman

30 January 2015 10:41 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

A Walk in the Woods is a film decades in the making, a passion project of sorts for the film’s lead actor Robert Redford. Based on the acclaimed memoir by Bill Bryson, the film is part travelogue, part male bonding movie, as two friends that disconnected over time bond together again to tackle the 3,500km Appalachian Trail.

Redford’s companion in the film is Nick Nolte, and Cineplex spoke with the two iconic actors, along with the remarkable comedic actor Nick Offerman, during this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

 

The film is about friendship – did that play into the working relationship between Mr. Nolte and Mr. Redford?

Robert Redford: My relationship with Nick was very much in the film, it was organic, it was genuine. I see him as a friend and a colleague, and so if you saw that in the film, then I guess we succeeded. »

Sundance Reviews: Robert Redford Vehicle 'A Walk in the Woods' Is a Slog

28 January 2015 1:06 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Based on Bill Bryson's 1998 memoir, "A Walk in the Woods," directed by Ken Kwapis from a script by Rick Kerb and Bill Holderman, failed to impress critics when it premiered at Sundance last Friday. The film stars festival founder Robert Redford as the aging Bryson, determined to shake things up by hiking the Appalachian Trail with his old friend, Katz (Nick Nolte). Other cast members include Emma Thompson, Nick Offerman, and Kristen Schaal. Despite echoes of "Wild" and Redford's celebrated man-versus-nature turn in "All Is Lost," however, "Woods" does not manage to spin the sparring between the grizzled leads into either comedy gold or a meditation on growing old. Most early reviews have pegged the film as a predictable -- if pleasant -- diversion, too insubstantial to have much impact beyond the name recognition of the cast.   Daniel Fienberg, Hitfix: "Surely there's an audience out there in the world for 'Grumpy Old. »

Parks and Recreation: Season Seven Ratings

28 January 2015 12:26 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

After seven seasons, Parks and Recreation is coming to an end. The NBC sitcom has never been a big hit but the ratings took an especially big dip last season -- falling nearly 30% in the 18-49 demographic. Will the series end its run with strong ratings or should it have been cancelled last year? Stay tuned.

In the final season, Parks and Recreation moves forward three years into the future to see what has become of Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) and her former/present co-workers in the fictional town of Pawnee, Indiana. The rest of the cast includes Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Jim O'Heir, and Retta.

Nick Offerman plays the role of America-loving Ron Swanson in the NBC comedy Parks and Recreation. Swanson loves America so much that the Internet pretty much pegs him as the most American man in memes.

Nick Offerman Without His Mustache Might Emotionally Scar You

28 January 2015 7:04 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Warning: you can't unsee Ron Swanson Nick Offerman without his signature mustache. The Parks and Recreation actor is known for two things: his snarky one-liners and his signature 'stache, but the latter is forever changed. While out at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival this week, the actor ditched his normally well-groomed mustache for a mountain-man beard instead. With the recent wrap of Parks and Recreation's final season, we can only wonder if Nick is ditching his signature style for good. Check out the mind-melding new look below and prepare to be shocked! »

Nick Offerman could go incognito without his signature 'stache!The "Parks & Rec" star debuted his mustache-free face at the premiere of "Me And Earl And The Dying Girl" at the Sundance Film Festival on Monday. Now that the NBC sitcom has wrapped up production, the actor said goodbye to his character's famous facial hair and went in the opposite direction from the look he sported for seven seasons -- beard, with no mustache.

Me And Earl And The Dying Girl Is Hilariously Heartwarming - Sundance 2015 Review

27 January 2015 10:14 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Every year I go to Sundance, there's always one unique film gem that sticks out above the rest. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is that film this year, not just for me but for everyone that I've talked to that has seen it. This has taken my number one spot of favorite movie at the festival this year, and it is one I can see being on my list of favorites at the end of the year. It is seriously that amazing. It's one of those movies I'll be talking to people about all year every chance I get.

The film is a quirky, heartwarming coming-of-age comedy that has a gentle touch of drama. The story follows a high school teen named Greg Gains (Thomas Mann) who thinks he has mastered the art of making it through high school without making friends or enemies and avoiding social situations. »

Sundance 2015: ‘Me & Earl & the Dying Girl’ an emotional, honest and hilarious experience

27 January 2015 6:41 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Me & Earl & the Dying Girl

Written by Jesse Andrews

Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon

USA, 2015

Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s Me & Earl & the Dying Girl is a film that has perhaps garnered the most hype this year at Sundance, and you should believe every word of it. By the end of the screening, there was hardly a dry eye in the entire theater. Following a teenage outsider, Greg (Thomas Mann), who makes cheap and funny remakes of classic films with his friend Earl (Rj Cyler), as he befriends a classmate, Rachel (Olivia Cooke), who has just developed leukemia. With a logline like that, it’s hard to not understand where all the tears are coming from. It sometimes feels cheap for filmmakers to use cancer as a way to garner emotion from the audience, but trust that when the tears do come, every single one has been earned.

Thomas Mann is often cast »

Omg! Nick Offerman Is Nearly Unrecognizable Without a Mustache and It's Not Ok: See the Shocking Pic

26 January 2015 4:41 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Nope, nope, nope. We are not Ok with this! While attending the 2015 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, Nick Offerman looked nearly unrecognizable without his signature mustache. The Parks and Recreation funnyman was all smiles while posing for pics at the Me And Earl And The Dying Girl premiere the other day. The 44-year-old actor donned a casual black shirt and a beanie with glasses. The most unusual part about his look though was the absence of facial hair above his lip. We don't think we've ever seen Offerman without his bold mustache! Offerman's new clean-shaven upper lip look definitely makes us miss Ron Swanson and his lovable 'stache. While his glorious mustache is no longer a »

Searchlight, Indian Paintbrush take world on Earl

26 January 2015 10:25 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

An unusually busy first weekend of on-site deal-making in Park City continued into the week as Fox Searchlight and Indian Paintbrush partnered on world rights to Me And Earl And The Dying Girl and The Orchard acquired The Overnight.

By the time the deal closed late on Sunday night Searchlight is understood to have invested mid-seven figures in the film.

Sales agent Wme Global and film-maker representatives Indian Paintbrush emerged with what they believe would be the best deal for all parties and resisted offers of up to $10m from a pack that included the Us majors, Lionsgate and TWC, with one studio willing to go higher than $12m in what would have resulted in a record Sundance advance.

Alfonso Gomez-Rejon directed Me And Earl And The Dying Girl (pictured) from Jesse Andrews’ Black List screenplay adapted from his eponymous novel.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl reportedly opened to a standing ovation at the fest and is said to have sparked a record-setting bidding war among potential distributors. Deadline reports that Fox Searchlight is set to pay $12 million for the film rights.

Look at Nick Offerman’s New, Mustache-less Face

26 January 2015 12:08 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Pawnee's most striking countenance has evolved into a new manimal, as Nick Offerman's upper lip is finally getting some fresh air. MTV said Offerman's mustache-less face looked like that of a garden gnome, and although that is accurate, it is also semi-mean. So let's be pretend-nice for the next five or so minutes and say his transformed mug looks like the Mona Lisa, but with a chin strap, because Nick Offerman — mustache or no mustache — is a national treasure. (Okay, fine, Mona Lisa or an older Mose Schrute, whatever.) The actor was spotted without his notorious whiskers at the Sundance Film Festival, where he's been promoting his new film Me and Earl and the Dying Girl.Here's what Offerman 2.0 looks like: Preaching to the choir: One can only hope: Either smizing or longing for a mustache: All good things must come to an end, so with that we »

Sundance: Fox Searchlight Closes Deal on ‘Me and Earl’

25 January 2015 10:19 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox Searchlight has landed “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl,” Variety has learned.

It’s easy to understand the studio’s enthusiasm. The dramedy about a high school student who is basically strong-armed into befriending a classmate with cancer earned a standing ovation when it debuted at the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday.

The film is not a pure acquisition, according to an individual with knowledge of the talks. It is a partnership with Indian Paintbrush, the film’s producer. Initial reports pegged the price at $12 million, but that appears to have been inflated. The individual said Fox Searchlight paid a portion of the production costs upfront. The deal also involves profit-sharing, with a price tag estimated at roughly $6 million.

In a laudatory review, Variety’s Peter Debruge wrote that the film “has the potential to outperform last year’s ‘The Fault in Our Stars.” He praised the picture »

Review: 'Me and Earl and the Dying Girl' turns the coming of age genre on its head

25 January 2015 6:27 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Park City — A great film is often one that it transcends the cliches of its genre. The 2015 Sundance Film Festival already debuted one movie that overcame the tropes of the coming-of-age picture, "The Diary of a Teenage Girl," Saturday. And on Sunday, it brought another genre-breaker to the zeitgeist with Alfonso Gomez-Rejon's powerhouse "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl." Let me start off by saying that the film's main character, Greg (Thomas Mann), would want everyone to know that the dying girl isn't going to die. She's gonna be Ok and what you'll eventually see in theaters is really just the story of their friendship. The dying girl is named Rachel, by the way, and she's wonderfully played by Olivia Cooke ("Bates Motel").   But back to Greg. Greg has spent most of high school trying to be casual friends with everyone while remaining as invisible as possible at the same time. »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl’

25 January 2015 5:26 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Anyone who buys a ticket to a film called “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” goes in fully expecting to cry. It’s sort of a given. The surprise, then, is the laughter: the near-constant stream of wise, insightful jokes that make it so easy to cozy up to characters dealing with a tough emotional situation. The story of a high school senior forced to befriend a classmate who has just diagnosed with leukemia, and the sincere, nonsexual connection that forms as a result (sorry, “The Fault in Our Stars,” but there’s no nookie here), this rousing adaptation of Jesse Andrews’ novel is destined not only to connect with young audiences in a big way, but to endure as a touchstone for its generation.

After landing a coveted spot on the 2012 Black List, the coveted assignment went to director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, who worked as a personal assistant to Martin Scorsese, »
