British actress Naomie Harris has been nominated for an Oscar for her role as a crack-addicted mother in the 2016 indie drama Moonlight. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some other roles she's played in her career.
In Paris, a young American who works as a Michael Jackson lookalike meets Marilyn Monroe, who invites him to her commune in Scotland, where she lives with Charlie Chaplin and her daughter, Shirley Temple.
Brit, Candy, Cotty, and Faith have been best friends since grade school. They live together in a boring college dorm and are hungry for adventure. All they have to do is save enough money for spring break to get their shot at having some real fun. A serendipitous encounter with rapper "Alien" promises to provide the girls with all the thrill and excitement they could hope for. With the encouragement of their new friend, it soon becomes unclear how far the girls are willing to go to experience a spring break they will never forget. Written by
James Franco admits in an interview to Howard Stern shortly after the movie was released that while shooting some scenes in the movie, (specifically one scene at a pool hall) some areas of filming were and quote, "real locations where there were real gangsters around and real bad stuff going on." Franco also admits that Vanessa Hudgens, aka "Candy" specifically was very scared while shooting at this location. (Which is contrary to her character in this movie) See more »
The girls are shown crossing the Sunshine Skyway bridge as they arrive in St. Petersburg. Faith is shown crossing it again when she leaves. The Sunshine Skyway is south of St. Pete, therefore the girls came to town from southern Florida, and Faith would be heading farther south instead of northward to her home. See more »
I was a big fan of "Kids" and expected the same amount of intellectually subtle social commentary in this movie. I could not wait to get out of the theater.. If I had not paid so much for my ticket, I would have gotten up and left halfway through the movie. IT IS AWFUL! It is astonishing to me that this generation finds a movie this horribly scripted, filmed, and thought-out to be good. It is not controversial, racy, or thought- provoking. It gives no insight, message, or underlying theme. It isn't that I do not like controversial, bad-ass, or vulgar films.. I do. This film offered none of that! I love films that give insight into a generation or group of people that others do not generally interact with; but this movie did not even accurately portray these things. I want this movie to get buried forever.
