Ashby Trailer


Ed Wallis has never really been the popular boy in his class and the thought of having to move to a brand new school and start over isn't exactly his idea of fun. Starting over in a new location with his mum, Ed soon becomes an easy target for the class jocks but he doesn't let it bother him. When he's given a new assignment from school to speak with and write an essay on an older person, Ed doesn't know where - or rather who - to turn to, that is until he sees his neighbour might and thinks he might be just the person to speak to.

Though hesitant at the start, the neighbour agrees to speak with Ed. After the duo spend some time together, Ashby and Ed soon open up to one another and form an unlikely friendship. Ashby teaches Ed some much needed life lessons and vice versa.

Ashby was written and directed by Tony McNamara and had its premiere at this year's Tribeca Film Festival. Natt Wolf recently starred in Paper Towns with Cara Delevingne and The Fault in Our Stars alongside Shailene Woodley.

Video - Michael Lerner Taking A Break From Acting


Actor Michael Lerner (Godzilla; Elf; A Serious Man) is seen leaving the Hollywood premiere of Like Crazy. Michael tells photographers that he enjoyed the screening and talks about Eddie Murphy, who he worked with on Harlem Nights. He also reveals he is taking a short break from acting.

Michael can next be seen in an untitled retelling of the classic fairytale Snow White, alongside Julia Roberts and Lily Collins, who are portraying the Evil Queen and the title character, respectively. The film is due for release in 2012.

Poster Boy Review


Weak
Poster Boy is an overwrought drama far more interested in making political points than in entertaining its audience. The story of an arch-conservative Senator whose reelection campaign is threatened by the potential outing of his estranged gay son, it's held together with a hard-to-accept mish-mash of coincidences, pontifications, and badly lit sex scenes, all shot with a shaky handheld camera that inspires more wooziness than urgency.

The obese and ugly North Carolina Senator Jack Kray (Michael Lerner) keeps his boozy wife (Karen Allen) on a very short leash and would do the same to his college student son Henry (Matt Newton) if Matt were still close enough. When they reunite on the eve of a speech that the Senator will deliver on Henry's campus, Henry is appalled to find out that father wants him to deliver a fawning introduction to dear old dad. When Henry balks, Dad simply smacks him in the face. Nice.

Godzilla (1998) Review


Weak
The sad thing about the cast of the new Gozilla is this: you can't put a name for the part of Godzilla. In lieu of such, I state that Godzilla stars Matthew Broderick, Jean Reno, Maria Pitillo, Hank Azaria, Kevin Dunn, and a really big lizard.

Any movie that has a cast like that should give you an immediate clue as to the cinematic quality.

Mockingbird Don't Sing Review


OK
This true story comes to us from way back in 1970, when police raided the wildly dysfunctional home of a family who kept their daughter locked in a closet for 14 unspeakably abusive years, still in diapers and unable to speak.

Busted out, her therapists and doctors had a hell of a time reintegrating her into society -- and in fact, she never did learn to speak, confirming a long-held theory that if a child doesn't learn language skills before puberty it never will.

29 Palms (2002) Review


Bad
You're a filmmaker with a quirky cast but no money to actually shoot your movie. What do you do?

Well, you borrow the oldest trick in the book by putting your characters in the desert, where you can pretty much shoot your movie for free!
