Toronto Film Review: ‘St. Vincent’

6 September 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood would have to freeze over before the Catholic Church agreed to canonize the drinking, gambling, cussing old coot Bill Murray plays in Theodore Melfi’s sweet-and-sour first feature, “St. Vincent.” Even so, this refreshingly unorthodox tragicomedy mounts a pretty convincing case that sometimes role models arrive in disguise — as they do here for the pic’s preteen hero. , though Melfi’s instinct to find and accentuate the memorable character’s redeeming qualities steers this Oct. 10 Weinstein Co. release from “Bad Babysitter” realm into more solidly commercial heart-tugging territory.

Who but Murray could have played Vincent, a drunken curmudgeon who somehow manages to seem all the more lovable with each poor life decision he makes? Vincent lives alone, except for his grumpy-looking Persian cat Felix, and tolerates the company of precious few, apart from pregnant Russian stripper Daka (Naomi Watts) and a mysterious older woman named Sandy (Donna Mitchell) whom »

Adult World Review

10 February 2014 3:38 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Everyone wants to be commended for their work. One of the inalienable facets of the American education system, and one that’s stirred up a fair amount of criticism in recent years, is a focus on numbers as an end-all. A high Gpa, strong Act scores and a large amount of course credits are valued above all else in high schools and colleges, to the point where students actively compete to see who can score highest. The C, once meant to imply an average score, is no longer acceptable – only the golden A will do. The system’s critics claim that boiling education down to numbers is really missing the point, and that all the A’s and 36′s can’t help students if reaching those targets prevents them from understanding the purpose behind their education or, worse, deluding themselves into believing that high scores are enough to guarantee career success. »

First Trailer and Poster for Adult World with Emma Roberts, Evan Peters & John Cusack

17 January 2014 4:30 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Scott Coffey’s Adult World debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival last year, and it’s finally on the cusp of its stateside release, heading into cinemas and to VOD on Valentine’s Day next month.

The actor-turned-filmmaker made his feature directorial debut back in 2005 with Ellie Parker, led by Naomi Watts. And he returns with Adult World, his sophomore feature, with the young Emma Roberts front and centre. And with less than a month to go before it arrives, IFC has released the first poster, and launched the first trailer over on Yahoo Movies.

A Stanford graduate feels she’s destined to be a great poet but winds up working as a clerk in a mom-and-pop adult bookstore.

Evan Peters and John Cusack complete the leading trio, with Armando Riesco, Shannon Woodward, Reed Birney, and Catherine Lloyd Burns starring alongside them.

Coffey directs from a script penned by Andrew Cochran, »
