Ramaa Mosley first learned about Tim Macy after typing "best Short Story" on google. The two later met online and decided to make the short story that was to be "The Brass Teapot" into a comic book before adapting it to film. See more »
When John and Alice are in the library, Alice rips a page out of the "Magical Objects and Potions" book while John is distracted. He then begins to read about some dangers of the teapot on the lower right edge of the right-side page. Turning the page he cannot keep reading because the next page had been removed. In reality, the continuation would have been on the upper-left back side of the page he turned, which was clearly full of text. See more »
A lighthearted approach to a rich premise..and its funny.
I really liked Ramaa Mosley's debut. It's funny and manages to take on a deep premise with a lighthearted comedic approach. Sprinkled with slap-stick comedy and humorous dialogue that borders on the "did she really just say that?" The comedy ensemble includes Bobby Moynihan from SNL, Alia Shawkat from Arrested Development fame and Jack Mcbrayer from 30Rock. Why not? Normally, I wouldn't notice this type film but the cast really drew me in and the comedy kept me in my seat. I saw it twice. Both Juno Temple and Michael Angarano are constantly growing as actors and The Brass Teapot is a great example of their ever-improving talents.
