Michael Abbott Jr in Official Trailer for Indie Film 'In the Radiant City'

"There's no such thing as evil, son. There's just people doing good and bad to each other." The Orchard has debuted a trailer for indie drama In the Radiant City, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. The film is the feature directorial debut of Kentucky native Rachel Lambert, and it's set in Kentucky, about a man who returns home only to find his family is still haunted by the stigma of a murder his brother committed years ago. The cast includes Michael Abbott Jr in the lead role, along with Marin Ireland, Madisen Beaty, Celia Weston, Jon Michael Hill, Deirdre O'Connell, and Paul Sparks.

Review: Outlaws And Angels

I’ve never been a fan of spaghetti westerns, but with the release of Bone Tomahawk this past year and now Outlaws And Angels I may need to seriously consider watching more thriller/horror-esque western films. Outlaws And Angels is the debut film from writer/director Jt Mollner and stars Chad Michael Murray, Luke Wilson, Teri Polo, Francesca Eastwood, Ben Browder and Madisen Beaty. The story centers around a trio of outlaws on the run that decide to invade the home of an unsuspecting family for the night; however, not all is as it seems as roles are reversed and deadly secrets come bursting through the surface.

When it came to reviewing this film, I needed a few days to really take everything in since Outlaws And Angels is unlike anything I’ve seen this year. From the opening scene (which was bloody and hilarious) to the ending (which left

Review: Desensitizing Western ‘Outlaws and Angels’ is a Dark Endurance Test

Review: Desensitizing Western ‘Outlaws and Angels’ is a Dark Endurance Test
New Mexico in the late 19th century, as shown in Jt Mollner’s “Outlaws and Angels,” is a land where zealotry and hypocrisy go hand and hand, where Thomas Hobbes’ “nasty, brutish and short” characterization of human nature guides every interpersonal relationship. While that may not be an inaccurate characterization of what small-town life was like in the American Southwest during the Cleveland administration, “Outlaws and Angels” overestimates its own elegance, delivering a misguided ode to frontier ugliness.

Fittingly, “Outlaws and Angels” opens with a bloodbath, a bank heist gone wrong that leaves a Us Marshall dead. The gang responsible for the crime, armed by ringleader Henry (Chad Michael Murray) and laden with the fruits of their labor, quickly seek refuge from their newly-earned bounty. Starving and with no means of transportation across the Mexican border, the group happens on an unassuming farmhouse, home to the local preacher George Tildon

Outlaws And Angels Review

Like a heavy Southern drawl that lazily meanders through conversation, Outlaws And Angels drags its scenes far longer than contextually necessary. Imagine a Southerner leaking “Hooowwwwdddyyy folkssssss!” like a deflating balloon instead of clear, concise dictation (“Howdy!” and done). Characters just glare at the screen as director Jt Mollner has a field-day with zoom ins and outs that turn his dried-out, rawhide script into a crackly piece of fragile leather. Overindulgence mars this grim, rough-and-tumble Western splatterfest, which is comparable to a more interesting (but still tiresome) take take on Jane Got A Gun (with a darker, strangely jovial mean streak). Death certainly was a byproduct of the Old West, but could people really be so terse about it all?

Mollner’s tale of frontier justice follows three robbers who interrupt a family’s dinner and demand safe haven for the night. Led by a ruthless drifter named Henry (Chad Michael Murray

NBC’s ‘Aquarius’ to Launch Second Season With Two-Hour, Commercial-Free Episode

[Sundance Review] Other People

Just a year since the cancer dramedy Me and Earl and the Dying Girl won big at Sundance, this year’s festival opened with another in the subgenre – albeit without the former’s teen-movie trappings – and it wears Sundance tropes like garlands (death, queer themes, quirky characters). Despite its tendency to fall into familiar characterizations, there’s much to like in its playful storytelling, not least from a winning performance by Jesse Plemons.

He plays David, a struggling comedy writer who returns from New York City to his childhood home in Sacramento after his mother Joanne (a terrific Molly Shannon) is diagnosed with cancer. The pilot he’s recently written has been rejected, his boyfriend (Zach Woods) has left him, and whittling away his time in his home town brings to light Sartre’s adage from No Exit that “hell is other people.”

Sundance Film Review: ‘Outlaws & Angels’

Sundance Film Review: ‘Outlaws & Angels’
Not unlike “The Hateful Eight,” “Outlaws & Angels” is a Grand Guignol nod to spaghetti Westerns that soon abandons the great outdoors for one equally bloody interior location. But Jt Mollner’s debut feature has its own distinctive plot arc and constant excesses, making for an assertively nasty frontier morality tale likely to win some cult admiration while repelling anyone looking for the return of wholesome Randolph Scott-type oaters. In contrast with “Eight,” the absence of marquee names behind and before the camera will make this strictly a niche commercial gamble; Momentum plans a summer U.S. release, with several European territories also sold.

A horrifically abrupt ending to two young women’s main-street promenade alerts 1887 Cuchillo, N.M., too late that its bank is being robbed. The related death of a government official further ensures a posse will be hot on the trail of the five masked outlaws, one

[Sundance Review] Outlaws and Angels

Three bank robbers walk into a dysfunctional home on the prairie in Jt Mollner‘s cold-blooded Outlaws and Angels, filmed and premiering at Sundance in glorious 35mm. The premise naturally evokes Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, particularly when it comes to the outlaws, however light their presence may be. Amongst the three groups — the outlaws, the Tildon family and the law — angels, too, are largely missing in the film.

Opening on a small farm estate we are briefly introduced to the Tildon clan: patriarch George (Ben Browder) is a tough recovering alcoholic who attempts to get right with the Lord, even if his daughters Flo (Francesca Eastwood) and Charlotte (Madisen Beaty) aren’t buying it. Short on life outside of the homestead (they’re told most of the eligible bachelors in town have taken ill) they remain the ward of George until they are liberated by a band of outlaws.

Molly Shannon and Jesse Plemons on His Sad Sex Scene, Star Wars Rumors, and the Funny Things About Dying
One of the joys of Sundance is watching sweet, low-budget movies that bring together nice people whom you might never have thought to pair up. Such is the case with Molly Shannon and Jesse Plemons, who play dying mother and gay son in Saturday Night Live writer Chris Kelly's first feature, Other People, an oftentimes funny look at a family dealing with cancer that earned the festival's prestigious opening-night slot. The movie opens with Shannon having just died at home, with her family, including Plemons, Bradley Whitford as her husband, and Maude Apatow and Madisen Beaty as her daughters, weeping on the bed, when a friend calls the answering machine to check in — while ordering fast food at a drive-in. From there it rewinds nearly a year, to the moment when Plemons's character, David, a comedy writer fresh out of work who has just broken up with his longtime
