Shia LaBeouf, Lucas Hedges, Noah Jupe and Maika Monroe are the stars of new drama Honey Boy.
Set over the course of a decade, written by Shia LaBeouf and directed by Alma Har’el, Honey Boy is the story of a young actor’s efforts to mend his relationship with his hard-drinking, law-breaking father…
This must have been quite the journey for LaBeouf considering it appears to be based on the story of his relationship with his own father. I’m ready for good performances from everyone. Especially young Mr. Jupe.
FKA Twigs, Natasha Lyonne, Noah Jupe, Laura San Giacomo, Clifton Collins Jr. and Martin Starr also star.
Girlfriend’s Day which stars Bob Odenkirk, Natasha Lyonne and Amber Tamblyn takes place in a a world where greeting card writers are celebrated like movie stars. Romance writer Ray (Odenkirk) used to be the king and since becoming a ‘has been’ was never in his plans, he’ll do what ever it takes including getting entangled in a web of murder and deceit to be back on top…
I’m intrigued because it looks different to what most of us can usually expect to be watching on Valentines day and the cast is reliable.
Sally field and Max Greenfield are the stars of Hello, My Name Is Doris, the story of a mature woman who romantically pursues a much younger man. This kind of tale certainly isn’t the sort of thing you see in movies everyday, so, naturally I had to meet Doris for myself.
In meeting Doris, I got to learn about her story and how it relates to her current choices. There are a few dramatic and funny moments in this movie. However, what sticks most in my mind are the scenes that were so uncomfortable to watch that averting my gaze just had to happen. By uncomfortable, I’m referring to the situations the characters get themselves into as opposed to the films execution, which, overall is ok.
The actors did well with their performances but I didn’t like Hello, My Name Is Dorisenough for the uncomfortable moments to be worth it. What I did like a lot is the following quote because the meaning is just what a chronic procrastinator like myself needs to remember, always.
‘There are seven days in a week and someday isn’t one of them’
I also like that Hello My Name Is Doris helped me to conclude that essentially, we’re all stalkers when we find something /someone we like enough. But of course, as is the case with most things, there are levels and I for one am on the ‘no restraining order necessary’ category.
I can’t be sure that I’ve ever seen Sally field play a leading role before, but I like the idea of Hello, My Name Is Doris…
As is the case for many (I’m guessing), Sally Field’s role as Mrs Gump in Forrest Gump (1994) will forever be the one that sticks in mind when I here her name. A good thing since the movie is brilliant.
Directed by Michael Showalter, I’m expecting Hello, My Name Is Doris to be funny and a refreshingly welcome kind of different.
