Romance of Loneliness, The | Review

Directors: Sarah Ledbetter, Matteo Servente Writer: Sarah Ledbetter Starring: Amy Lavere, Lynn Cohen, Rebekah Brandes, Anna Margaret Hollyman, Kentucker Audley, John Still, Kim Justis, G.B. Shannon, Caroline White As quickly and unexpectedly as Amanda (Amy Lavere) decides to move in with her long distance boyfriend, Richard (Kentucker Audley), she runs away from Richard even faster. She never seems to understand her own motives in escaping out of Richard's bathroom window, it is just something she does. From the get-go, it seems as though Amanda bases her decisions upon intuition alone, seemingly with no rhyme or reason to justify them. This is Amanda's modus operandi, but her knack for whimsical decision making has left her living out of her Mercedes Benz as if it is an armoire on wheels. Amanda describes herself as a silly girl who does not know what she wants; someone who is stuck at a fork in the road of life.

Amy Lavere: Stranger Me

Don’t cross Amy Lavere. The Memphis singer-songwriter-bassist-actress can add badass to that long string of hyphens, as she writes about the sorts of things that would land most women in jail. On her previous album, 2007’s Anchors & Anvils, she sang about murdering the object of her conflicted affection, but discovered, in a sickening twist, that “killing him didn’t make the love go away.”...

One would think that it would be easy for a web series to get lost in the hubub at Sundance, with A-list talent cozying up to press and agents huddled around coffee in freezing temperatures. But if that web series was created by Craig Brewer, the force behind Hustle & Flow and Black Snake Moan? And if that web series had the backing of MTV?

Tonight night, though, that energy will be in Park City, as Brewer unveils clips from the show. He is scheduled to be joined at the event by musician Amy Lavere and actress Clare Grant, two of the show's stars. $5 Cover will debut in mid-March with a 15-episode season, and as we noted earlier, there's still time to get
