Movie Review – Run & Jump (2013)

26 May 2014 1:39 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Run & Jump, 2013

Directed by Steph Green.

Starring Maxine Peake, Will Forte and Edward MacLiam.

Synopsis:

Following a stroke, Conor returns home a changed man. Supported by his loving family and neurologist Ted, everyone has to come to terms that life will not be the same again.

By the time you’ve reached three quarters of an hour, you might have already begun to wonder just why you’re watching Run & Jump. Steph Green’s deliberately provincial tale of the partial recuperation of a thirty-eight-year-old Irish stroke victim and the effect this has on his wife and young family is a rangy, spattergun affair, sometimes of yawning disenchantment and at other times littered with a stubborn refusal to bow to medical and scientific inevitability.

When Conor arrives home, being released from hospital, after his stroke, he is a changed man, At least so we’re told. Tales of his life before »

Run & Jump Review

22 May 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Two immensely talented actors who you simply don’t see enough of on the big screen, are Maxine Peake and Will Forte. So thankfully for us, filmmaker Steph Green has made an attempt in putting that right once and for all, casting the two performers as the lead roles in her debut production Run & Jump. Well, we’re sold.

Forte plays Ted, an American doctor who is staying with the Vanetia (Peake) and her family in Ireland, to study and examine her husband Conor (Edward MacLiam), who has developed a significant change in personality following a recent stroke. While the infectiously optimistic mother of two desperately attempts to get on with her life and to balance the acts of parenthood and caring for her husband, the doctor provides something of a distraction, though as the pair find solace in one another’s company, they have to be careful not to overstep the mark. »

Wonderful Trailer For Steph Green’s Indie Comedy ‘Run & Jump’

5 February 2014 2:06 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I’m a sucker for a good positive-vibe indie project so if that opening gambit doesn’t float your boat already, you might not want to stay with us for Run & Jump but do…because I think you should.

Steph Green was Oscar-nominated for her 2009 short New Boy and has now taken on the grand path of her directorial feature debut. Run & Jump was co-written with another newcomer Ailbhe Keogan for their story that focuses around American doctor Ted (Will Forte) who travels to Ireland to study the Casey family after 38-year-old Conor (Edward MacLiam) suffers a stroke which changes his personality, which then leaves wife and mother Vanetia (played by the wonderful Maxine Peak) to run the show.

I think there’s a beautiful, underlying story to tell here about family, yourself and the changes that happen when you least expect. Check out the trailer below and head here »

Run & Jump Movie Review

26 January 2014 1:29 AM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Run & Jump Director: Steph Green Starring: Maxine Peake, Edward MacLiam, Will Forte, Brendan Morris, Ruth McCabe, Sharon Horgan, Michael Harding A compassionate drama that wants to sift through and examine notions of expanded family, “Run & Jump” flirts with being a lot of different things, but succeeds in being none of them. The debut feature film of co-writer and director Steph Green, this Irish import — featuring one of two dramatic turns by ex-”Saturday Night Live” star Will Forte this season — has a rooted sense of place, but lacks the resolution and fortitude to push past pretty, dressed-up surface conflict and into areas that might leave a lasting  [ Read More ]

Review: Affecting Drama 'Run And Jump' Starring Will Forte

23 January 2014 3:05 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There’s acting and then there’s “acting.” The first requires building credible characters and relationships, developing organic conflicts within the framework of a concrete story. The second involves loading up a story with excessive clutter that it drowns out any work of which the actors are capable, turning them into drama automatons: it’s mostly reacting, both removing the burden of work from most performers while also placing a greater spotlight on their very presence, as they are forced to “react” instead of act. This also helps illustrate the difference between drama and melodrama. That best captures the nature of “Run and Jump,” an Irish drama with a solid, touching central conceit. The first scene finds beautiful Vanetia (Maxine Peake) driving her husband home after a hospital stay following a stroke. Unfortunately, he’s now in a regressed mental state similar to a child; Conor (Edward McLiam) now stares »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2006

22 January 2014 6:26 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 23 Jan 2014 - 05:44

Our series of lists devoted to underappreciated films brings us to the year 2006, and a further 25 overlooked gems...

With all the major films that elbow their way into their cinemas every year, there's bound to be some casualties among the big hits. And just like any other year, 2006 was dominated by the likes of Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, The Da Vinci Code and Ice Age: The Meltdown. But in tandem, there were dozens of lesser-seen films which shuffled in and out of cinemas (or occasionally, didn't get a release in cinemas at all) without very many people noticing.

As we're sure you're aware by now, these lists aim to redress the balance a little, and hopefully introduce a few films from any given year that you may have missed. There are also one or two films that, although »
