For those who don't know, Green burst onto the indie scene back in 2000 with the critically acclaimed, but microscopically released, "George Washington" and followed-up with a series of well-regarded low-budget films. "All the Real Girls" (starring a pre-"New Girl" Zooey Deschanel) and "Snow Angels" (with Sam Rockwell and Kate Beckinsale), both debuted at Sundance. "Undertow" (with Jamie Bell, Josh Lucas and Dermot Mulroney) premiered at the Toronto and New York film festivals.
Then Green broke into the mainstream with the Judd Apatow-produced "Pineapple Express." Lesser studio efforts "Your Highness" and "The Sitter" followed. After his guerrilla-style experience shooting last year's Clint Eastwood/"Halftime in America" Super Bowl commercial, Green decided to get some friends together and make a movie cheap, quick and quiet.
The result is the scruffy, »
