Opening This Week: Nic Cage's new hairpiece, Billy Elliot's dark side

1 September 2008 9:23 AM, PDT | | See recent IFC news »

By Neil Pedley

This week's trip to the multiplex offers a jaunt around the globe where, amongst other things, there's a case of mistaken ethnicity in Boston, Nic Cage gets another wig fitted in Thailand, there's whimsy and surrealism in Scotland and Matthew McConaughey is right at home in Malibu, where he might finally have found something he does well, maybe.

"August Evening"

Strained emotional bonds and the transitory nature of the life of an illegal immigrant provide the backdrop for Chris Eska's quietly affecting family drama that stars Pedro Castaneda as an aging farmhand who loses his job at a chicken farm in a sleepy Texas town, forcing he and his devoted daughter-in-law (Veronica Loren) to relocate to San Antonio to stay with his older children and the grandchildren he never knew he had. As Alison Willmore pointed out in last week's Lunchbox, Castaneda is a first-time actor »

Worth Watching - July 19: Matthew McConaughey's Surfer Dude Trailer

19 July 2008 1:56 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Finally, "shirtless" Matthew McConaughey in a role that he was born to play! Surfer Dude is a laid back comedy about a surfer named Steve Addington who returns to his home in Malibu to find that virtual reality surfing is the new "in" thing when there are no waves. Don't think too much about that story, because I think the best way to enjoy this movie would be laid back and stoned out of your mind (note: we don't necessarily condone smoking of any type). Both Willie Nelson and Woody Harrelson also have roles in this as well. To be honest, I think this looks mildly entertaining, which is all I would really be looking for in a movie about a surfer anyway. Give it a shot and check it out for yourself.

Alexie Gilmore is set to teach Robin Williams a lesson. The two have signed to star in the indie feature "World's Greatest Dad."

Williams plays Lance, a high school poetry teacher who copes with his son's death from a freak masturbation accident by faking a suicide note to spare the family shame. The note, published without his permission, ends up becoming a sensation, and Lance reignites his writing career by penning a personal journal he claims was written by his son (Daryl Sabara).

Gilmore plays Claire, a teacher who has an affair with Lance.

Bob Goldthwait penned the script and is directing the project, which began filming Tuesday in Seattle.

Howard Gertler and Sean McKittrick are producing. CAA and Cinetic Media are handling the North American rights to the film.

Williams' upcoming projects include the indie comedy "Shrink" and Disney's "Old Dogs." He is repped by CAA and Morra Brezner Steinberg & Tenenbaum Entertainment.
