Watch: The Past Returns In New Trailer For 'The Girl In The Book' Starring Emily VanCamp & Michael Nyqvist

4 December 2015 11:56 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A film we called "a remarkable, ambitious directorial debut" with a "a fascinating feminine story," "The Girl In The Book" is one of those finds that are discovered outside the usual Berlin/Cannes/Venice/Tiff lineups. Instead, our own Katie Walsh caught the picture at the Los Angeles Film Festival this past summer, and now you see what captured her attention. Read More: Review: 'The Girl In The Book' Starring Emily VanCamp Is A Remarkable, Ambitious Debut Directed by Marya Cohn, and starring Emily VanCamp, Michael Nyqvist, David Call, Michael Cristofer, Talia Balsam, Ana Mulvoy-Ten, Jordan Lage, and Ali Ahn, the story follows a young woman who is forced to confront her past when she crosses paths with a man she hasn't seen in fifteen years. Here's the official synopsis:  29-year-old assistant editor and aspiring writer Alice Harvey is funny, smart and emotionally self-destructive. Climbing the ranks at a notable publishing company, »

Film Review: ‘The Girl in the Book’

28 October 2015 1:44 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Girl in the Book” zigzags absorbingly back and forth in time to weigh the impact on a young woman of her formative relationship with a much older writer — one he used as fodder for the roman a clef that defined his career. Less flamboyant a take on a somewhat predatory mentor/muse attachment than Audrey Wells’ “Guinevere” (1999), and all the more subtly rewarding for it, Marya Cohn’s debut feature is perhaps a longer shot commercially for also being less titillating. But it merits consideration from niche distributors willing to carefully nurse a film that would benefit from outreach to local literary communities.

Watch: Find Out How a Film Got Made During Hurricane Sandy in 'The Making of The Dark Side'

26 October 2015 8:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Indiewire's Ultimate Guide to Documentary Filmmaking Shot during and after Hurricane Sandy, "The Dark Side" is a docufiction film that follows Dan, a young man who butt dials his ex, also named Sandy, amidst the confusion of the hurricane's blackout and takes it as a sign he must visit her. This romantic comedy is intercut with documentary interviews with firemen who lost their homes to the storm. The behind-the-scenes documentary, "The Making of The Dark Side," follows the largely improvised production of the film and its unique timeline that ran parallel to Hurricane Sandy. Interviews with director Richard Ledes and stars Edoardo Ballerini and Ali Ahn illuminate how the crew managed to shoot a film when most of New York City's lights wouldn't turn on, how they blended the unlikely pairing of documentary and romantic comedy, and how volunteering after the storm led them to the human »
