2015 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Noah Pritzker’s The Quitters

13 November 2014 11:15 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Noah Pritzker first surfaced with his short Little Dad (SXSW ’12), and in the summer of 2013 (see set pic), plugged away in the fog with his directorial debut. The San Fran resident shot in his own backyard with a cinematographer worth noting in Jakob Ihre (Oslo, 31. august). Backed by a strong indie duo producing team, Pritzker had Moonrise Kingdom‘s Kara Hayward, Saffron Burrows, Mira Sorvino and Kieran Culkin as his set of players.

Gist: Co-written by Pritzker and Ben Tarnoff,  this explores the upper class San Franciscan society and centers on Clark (Ben Konigsberg), a high school student, struggling to come to terms with the demands of his family, society, love. Kara Hayward plays Etta, a high school freshman dealing with her parents divorce.

Production Co./Producers: Luca Borghese (Girl Most Likely) and Ben Howe (Gabriel)

Prediction: Park City at Midnight is a possibility, and SXSW will certainly we circling this as well. »

Afm: K5 Picks Up Stephen Fingleton’s Thriller ‘The Survivalist’

4 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Oliver Simon and Daniel Baur’s K5 Intl. has taken international rights to writer/director Stephen Fingleton’s thriller “The Survivalist,” and added the film to its Afm slate.

Written and directed by Fingleton (“Magpie,” “Slr,” “Shirin”), “The Survivalist” is a dystopian thriller set in a time of starvation, where a lone man lives off a small plot of land hidden deep in forest, protecting his crop from intruders with his shotgun and improvised traps. But the long years alone have taken their toll on him, and he is beginning to lose his grip on reality.

Everything changes when a starving woman and her teenage daughter discover the farm. Desperate for food and shelter, the mother offers up her daughter to spend the night with him in return for bed and board. Overcome with desire, the man breaks his strict code of self-preservation and accepts them into his cabin. »

Meg Ryan Boards Teen Comedy Fan Girl

23 October 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been some time since Meg Ryan has lit up the big screen in a comedy. After abandoning her 80s persona initiated by her now-synonymous role in When Harry Met Sally, the actress dove into darker projects around the early 2000s. To be honest, who wouldn’t want to star in a gritty Jane Campion drama in just your birthday suit? Still, that was some ten years back, and following a dabble in forgettable fare such as The Women and Serious Moonlight, Ryan could be in line to rekindle her cinematic career with Fan Girl.

Under the direction of Paul Jarrett, the film will apparently follow a by-the-numbers teen movie formula. The story is “about a 15-year-old post-Millennial teen who lives for making movies and idolizing her favorite band. Given only a few days to complete a final film project, she comes up with an idea that could bring her two passions together. »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – July 7th 2014

7 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

I’m back! It’s been a long time and I apologise for that, moving house turned out to be a far far longer process than I anticipated or had been led to believe. Three weeks turned into six, six weeks turned into three months and now here we are.

Aside from the length of time it takes, moving house was a real eye opener in other areas too. Specifically in terms of how I inform you week on week of all of this wonderful content available to stream and then how you have to put up with lacklustre delivery from various ISPs.  I was living in someone else’s house on a connection that was not my own, not wanting to name names but there is one of the big three ISP’s in the UK which boasts about having one of, if not the, fastest broadband delivery on »

We all have predisposed notions about the infamous “romantic comedy.” As with other genres, there’s a large subsection of offerings, giving it a bad name. But, for every tired, cliché-driven comedy, there is another impressive offering that redefines the genre, garners plenty of laughs, and tells an honest story about love and relationships, however warped they may be. In the coming weeks, we’ll take a look at the fifty romantic comedy films that should be seen. These may not all be classic films, but they certainly put a stamp on the industry and the genre we affectionately call “rom-coms.”

 #50. Moonrise Kingdom (2012)

Most of Wes Anderson’s films could be described as romantic comedies, but his 2012 effort stands out, as its central story focuses on young love and the need to find acceptance. In Anderson’s world, while quirks abound, true connections between characters are commonplace. With Moonrise Kingdom, »
