It’s always exciting when an indie director steps up, gets out of their mumbly ghetto and starts to really take off with actors that aren’t just their friends. From the world of mumblecore, Drake Doremus had terrific results with Guy Pearce, Felicity Jones, Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Ryan in “Breathe In” and “Like Crazy,” and Joe Swanberg’s “Drinking Buddies” really cooked beyond what he’d made before thanks to the awesome chemistry of Olivia Wilde, Jake Johnson and Anna Kendrick.
