Sarah Silverman is set to receive the Mill Valley Film Festival Award after a screening of her film "I Smile Back" at the festival (October 8 through 18, 2015) and an onstage Q&A. "I Smile Back," scooped by Broad Green out of Sundance and set for October 23 release, marks a serious dramatic turn for Silverman (excellent before as a recovering alcoholic in Sarah Polley's "Take This Waltz"). She plays Laney, a suburban housewife whose facade is slipping away in the face of manic depression, and drug and sex addiction unknown to her long-suffering husband, played by Josh Charles ("The Good Wife"). This upsetting movie, even when careening into melodrama, is a real showcase for Silverman, who embodies a frittered woman willingly complicit in her own downfall, who wants redemption — but not quite yet. The film is directed by Adam Salky and written by Paige Dylan and co-writer Amy Koppelman, who penned »

Writer/director Tony McNamara made his feature-length debut this spring with the Tribeca Film Festival dramedy, “Ashby,” and the film was met with a good reception. Starring Mickey Rourke, Nat Wolff, Emma Roberts, and Sarah Silverman, it’s a coming-of-age high school film that fits in nicely with the mentor/protector/father figure genre. Our review from Tribeca wrote, "Ashby” [has a] consistently humorous and light tone... and it works well enough to keep the film entertaining and bouncy."
