Juno Temple And Evan Peters Are Snap-Happy Lovers In Trailer For Safelight

A new trailer for contemporary road trip drama, Safelight, has arrived online courtesy of Indiewire. Written and directed by Tony Aloupis, who made his directorial debut on the movie, it originally acquired attention under the name Truck Stop before it was recently retitled. Whatever its monicker, there’s no doubt the light is shining firmly on the film’s two rising stars, Evan Peters and Juno Temple.

In the 70s-set movie, the pair play a couple of friends, Charles and Vicki, who wend their way up the California coast in a bright red convertible. He’s on a mission to snap photos of every lighthouse on their route for a photography contest, and she’s a runaway without anywhere else to go. Their relationship is explored via the good old road trip framework that usually offers plenty of scope for introspection and heady life realizations.

Sugar – The Review

Sugar is a touching story that gives viewers a glimpse into the growing homeless youth population in Venice Beach, but it’s still missing a few morsels.

Based on the nine months director Rotimi Rainwater spent on the streets, Sugar is the story of a young girl who took to the streets after losing her entire family in a car crash. On the streets, she and her outcast friends look out for one another and survive however they can. To them, living on the streets is a better option than the lives that they ran away from.

This film was made with a lot of heart. Shenae Grimes (Sugar), as well as the rest of the cast, took care and consideration into the roles that they were playing. Whether it be a drug addict or a thief, the film still showed the humanity behind it. Having said that, I would

Film Review: ‘Sugar’

Film Review: ‘Sugar’
A well-intentioned attempt to illuminate the plight of homeless youth falls flat in “Sugar,” the dramatically inert narrative debut of director Rotimi Rainwater. Although the film is based in part on the filmmaker’s personal experiences more than 20 years ago, its compassion and careful sidestepping of exploitation tropes can’t make up for a fundamental lack of depth and urgency in the storytelling. Limited theatrical exposure will go unnoticed, with ancillary potential modest at best.

Foul-mouthed and emotionally guarded runaway Sugar (Shenae Grimes) has formed a makeshift family with a group of boys in Venice Beach, Calif., including ex-Mormon b.f. Marshall (Marshall Allman) and baby-faced surrogate brother Ronnie (Austin Williams). Kindly social worker and former street kid Bishop (Wes Studi) wants to learn more about Sugar’s troubled past, but his efforts go nowhere until her uncle (Angus Macfadyen) shows up and spills her secrets in the hopes of bringing her home.

Tony Aloupis' Feature Debut 'Truck Stop' Picks Up Juno Temple & Evan Peters For Period Drama

Rising actress Juno Temple has made quite a name for herself recently, playing layered, twisted roles in both William Friedkin's “Killer Joe” and Gregg Araki's much-underrated “Kaboom,” and it looks like she will continue the trend as she joins Tony Aloupis' feature directorial debut, “Truck Stop,” alongside Evan Peters of “American Horror Story” fame.

Deadline report that the film, which is set in the 1970s, follows the coming-of-age relationship between a high-schooler with cerebral palsy, played by Peters, and a disturbed runaway battling demons of her own (Temple). Aloupis, who last wrote the indie film “Sugar,” (not the Boden/Flick baseball drama, but an upcoming ensemble film about homeless teens) has an interesting premise on his hands, and definitely has the cast to pull it off. Peters was solid in the first season of the uneven-but-compelling “American Horror Story,” and Temple will be invading the public spotlight

Still, Temple is committed to the continue challenging herself by tackling roles in daring indie efforts. Deadline reports that Temple has signed on to star opposite Evan Peters (American Horror Story, Kick-Ass) in the 1970′s-set coming-of-age drama Truck Stop. Writer turned writer-director Tony Aloupis (Sugar) will make his directorial debut on the feature that centers on the friendship that evolves between a high schooler suffering from cerebral Palsy (Peters) and an edgy runaway with a troubled past (Temple).

Juno Temple and Evan Peters Make ‘Truck Stop’

After scaring millions of viewers in the first season of American Horror Story, Evan Peters is returning to his spot on the big screen alongside Juno Temple for a coming-of-age drama. According to Deadline, the pair will be leading writer-director Tony Aloupis‘s feature debut, titled Truck Stop.

The ’70s-set drama “centers around an unlikely friendship between a high-schooler with cerebral palsy (Peters) and a troubled runaway with a dark past (Temple)”. The first-time director collaborated on Rotimi Rainwater‘s 2011 film, Sugar, of which he lent his writing talent to. The Hacienda Film Company’s Cory Neal and Andrew Mysko will produce alongside Aloupis Productions’ Joe Kreig.

To be honest, I’m not all that familiar with Temple‘s work — which is kind of sad on my part, mainly because she has been gaining celebrity status in the recent years with her work in The Three Musketeers, as well as the upcoming Linda Lovelace biopic,

Shenae Grimes Pays Tribute to a Friend Through New Peter Pan Tattoo

Shenae Grimes just inked a new tattoo, the hat of Disney's character Peter Pan, on the back of her left ear. The Annie Wilson of the CW's hit series "90210" decided to add another permanent art on her skin soon after meeting tattoo artist Ami James at the launch of Wooster Street Social Club in Soho.
