Trailer: John Cameron Mitchell’s Rabbit Hole

Becca and Howie Corbett (NICOLE KIDMAN and AARON ECKHART) are returning to their everyday existence in the wake of a shocking, sudden loss. Just eight months ago, they were a happy suburban family with everything they wanted. Now, they are caught in a maze of memory, longing, guilt, recrimination, sarcasm and tightly controlled rage from which they cannot escape. While Becca finds pain in the familiar, Howie finds comfort.

The shifts come in abrupt, unforeseen moments. Becca hesitantly opens up to her opinionated, loving mother (DIANNE WIEST) and secretly reaches out to the teenager involved in the accident that changed everything (MILES TELLER); while Howie lashes out and imagines solace with another woman (SANDRA OH). Yet, as off track as they are, the couple keeps trying to find their way back to a life that still holds the potential for beauty, laughter and happiness. The resulting journey is an intimate glimpse into two people learning to re-engage with each other and a world that has been tilted off its axis.

Ugly Americans Volume One – One Man Is The System!

Ugly-Americans-Premiere

In the New York city of an alternate universe, Mark Lilly [voiced by Matt Oberg] is literally fighting the system from within since the Department of Integration has been downsized to one working employee [him] – as opposed to his wizard colleague [who goes out of his way to avoid working] – to give Law enforcement the money they [say they] need. This makes Mark’s position literally unique – he is now the only official [functioning] functionary who can help werewolves, vampires, blobs and other arcane creatures integrate into New York society.

Tower Prep – The Prisoner For Teens!

slider-tower

Over the last few months, I’ve been reading about The Cartoon Channel’s new live-action one-hour drama, Tower Prep [Tuesdays, 8/7C]. If people aren’t comparing it to Lost, they’re comparing it to Lost. Seriously. The series is about a student whose worst crime was to stand to a bully to make him leave his friend alone, and who wakes up the next morning in a dorm room with three other guys – all decked out in school uniforms. All he remembers – after being chewed out by a teacher; suspended for a week, and lectured by his parents – is playing an online game and connecting with a character that goes by Whisper 119. Then he turns on some tunes – which mutate into a buzzing noise, putting him to sleep.

RED – Ridiculously Entertaining Diversion!

Poster

Remember Knight & Day? Probably not – it was a less than memorable film that mixed action, espionage and romance in ways that were awkward and unsatisfying – it was a bit of a box office disaster.

RED, on the other hand, takes all of those elements and throws in an element of “over the hill gang” whimsy in a manner that is both extraordinarily clever and, ultimately, gratifyingly silly.
