Tribeca Film Festival 2013 Line-Up Includes Paul Rudd's Christmas Tree Caper
Ethan Hawke and John Cusack the other actors to watch out for next month
The 2013 Tribeca Festival has revealed its line-up for the forthcoming event, the film festival rising from humble origins in 2002 to become one of the largest in America – as proven by the appearance of some star names in its line-up of films this year, including Paul Rudd, Paul Giamatti and Ethan Hawke, among others.
Among those notable among the glut of announcements for the festival, which takes place from April 17th until April 28th in Manhattan, is Almost Christmas, which stars Giamatti and Rudd. The film sees the pair star as two good for nothing types who come up with a get rich quick scheme for Christmas, namely selling Christmas trees. There’s an issue with this though – Rudd’s character has just stolen Giamatti’s wife. Conflict awaits.
Elsewhere, Hawke is starring in the third installment of the Before… films. Before Sunrise came out in 1995 with the second, Before Sunset, coming out in 2004. Now Before Midnight is going to be screening in Tribeca, with the two main characters Jesse and Celine (played by Hawke and Delpy) moving to Europe whilst they continue their usual on again off again deep meaningful relationship thing. Another interesting one is Adult World, which sees Emma Roberts character have to take a job at a sex shop, where she encounters the eccentric writer played by John Cusack.

However these are just three of hundreds of screenings that will take place over the 11 days, with documentaries also set to be given an airing and even some experimental films, such as a fan made Star Wars film which sees 15 second filmed clips of Stars Wars: Episode IV that puts the film together.
