Tribeca Film Review: ‘Goodbye to All That’

3 May 2014 8:49 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Back in 2005, “Junebug” launched more than just Amy Adams’ career, though writer Angus MacLachlan has taken considerably longer to follow through on the charming, human-centric sensibility auds found so appealing about his first feature-length script. Now, nearly a decade later, the North Carolina scribe makes the transition to directing with “Goodbye to All That,” another gently relatable, regionally inclined dramedy, this one concerning a semi-oblivious husband (Paul Schneider) caught completely off-guard when his wife (Melanie Lynskey) files for divorce. While too low-concept to support an easy marketing play, this amiable indie rewards adult auds who’ve outgrown cookie-cutter romantic comedies.

Schneider earned an acting prize at the Tribeca Fim Festival for his irresistible portrayal of Otto Wall, an ordinary guy in his late 30s who spent entire decades of his life uncertain what he wanted, but now, as a husband and father, is pretty sure he’s figured it all »

Melanie Lynskey Really, Really Loves Lena Dunham

30 April 2014 1:04 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Melanie Lynskey has starred in some of our favorite movies over the past couple of decades, from Ever After to Sweet Home Alabama, and in turn has worked with our favorite stars. In her new film Goodbye to All That (read our review here), she has the same luck. Her character Annie blindsides her husband, Otto (Paul Schneider), with a divorce and deals with the aftermath of that as they try to move on, including a confrontation with his crazy new date Debbie (Anna Camp). When we sat down with Lynskey at the Tribeca Film Festival, she revealed some fun stories from the sets of her next few projects - HBO's Togetherness with the Duplass brothers and They Came Together with Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler - and why Lena Dunham is her favorite person.

Tribeca: Between Nas and 'Begin Again,' what are the festival's must-see movies

16 April 2014 9:17 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The Tribeca Film Festival began as a way for New York to rebuild culturally after the World Trade Center attacks in 2001. For the first time since then, the area around Ground Zero is dominated by a sparkly, newly finished Freedom Tower, which represents so much more than the city’s resilience and recovery. The Tribeca festival played a small, but not insignificant, role in that recovery, inviting artists and film lovers to the city and reassuring New Yorkers that life can be beautiful even in the darkest of days.

After more than a decade of growth, Tribeca is also entering »

Tribeca Film Festival: Paul Schneider can say 'Goodbye' to his marriage -- Exclusive

14 April 2014 9:27 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In Goodbye to All That, a new movie from the writer of Junebug, Otto can pretty much pin-point the moment he realized his marriage was over. It was probably right around the time he and his wife went to see their marriage counselor, who proceeded to inform him, “Your marriage is over.” It’s not a moment a person — or viewers — would forget quickly.

“A lot of the film was inspired by incidents that have happened to very close friends of mine,” says Junebug scribe and first-time director Angus MacLachlan. “I think anybody who’s married has fear that sometimes »

4 March 2014 11:35 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

By the looks of it, the Tribeca Film Festival might finally be growing out of their awkward teenage phase and moving into a new era where the nab more than just Sundance and SXSW festival rejects. Artistic Director Frederic Boyer has managed to nab some noteworthy American indie projects such as Lou Howe’s Gabriel (see pic above), Keith Miller’s Five Star, Adam Rapp’s Loitering with Intent, and Tristan Patterson’s Electric Slide.

On the docu front, we’ve got the latest from the likes of notable documentarians Marshall Curry and Jessica Yu. Think Ewan McGregor’s Long Way Round meets child solider movie for Curry’s awesomely titled Point and Shoot — where the Libyan rebel army take hold of Curry’s subject.
