Soo sorry I haven’t been keeping up with my weekly indie movies! I haven’t had much time to watch any. Recently I fell IN LOVE with a show on HBO called “Girls” and since I watched the whole season…yesterday lol, I have been looking up the cast members to see what else they’ve been in. Lena Dunham is definitely a new fave actress of mine along with Jemima Kirke who are both in the show. Anyways this lead me to “Tiny Furniture” which I really liked, perhaps you might like it too…
Plot: When a pair of star-crossed lovers are forced apart by fate it’s up to them to right the future. As they fall deeper in love, they experience visions of a deadly future – those around them are doomed to die. Within days their premonitions become reality as their friends start dying around them. As the visions intensify, it becomes clear that the next people to die will be them. The couple has to choose between remaining together and hurting those around them, or staying apart forever.
4) even though my rating system is 1-5, I would give it a 10!
5) beautiful cinematography
6) lesson to learn: “People will tell you nothing matters, the whole world is going to end soon anyway,
but those people look at life the wrong way. I mean, things don’t need to last forever to be perfect.”
A girl looking for kicks gets a whole lot more than she bargained for in a singularly curious town in this dark comedy. Caroline Wexler (Kat Dennings) is a clever but cynical 17-year-old whose father is still adjusting to the death of his wife. Caroline’s dad takes a new job and they move to a strange community where the sky is always dark thanks to an industrial fire that’s been burning for several months and isn’t going to be put out anytime soon. Caroline doesn’t have much use for her backward drug-addled classmates, and so to relieve her boredom she sets out to seduce Mr. Anderson (Josh Lucas), the best-looking man on the school’s faculty. While Mr. Anderson tries to avoid responding to Caroline’s blunt sexual overtures, it isn’t long before he succumbs to her charms and is sleeping with his new student. But Caroline’s new romance turns into a romantic triangle when Thurston (Reece Thompson), one of her stoner classmates, falls head over heels for her and she gives him a chance to impress her. Before long, Thurston is declaring Caroline the love of his life, Mr. Anderson is angry over having a rival for her affections, and the local serial killer begins to make their presence known, picking off the town’s teenagers one by one. Also featuring Andie MacDowell and Ted Whittall, Daydream Nation was the first feature film from writer and director Mike Goldbach.
Plot: A high school slacker forges an unlikely bond with the most popular girl in his class, and becomes an apprentice to an older artist after learning that his disdain for homework may cost him his diploma. George (Freddie Highmore) isn’t what you’d call a people person, yet he’s somehow managed to make it through high school with a minimal amount of effort. Meanwhile, Sally (Emma Roberts) is a natural-born beauty whose popularity helps to hide the fact that she’s positively miserable at home. Brought together by their turbulent personal lives, Sally and George quickly discover that despite appearances, they actually have quite a bit in common. It all threatens to fall apart, though, when George learns that he may not be eligible for graduation. Desperate to escape high school by any means necessary, George attempts to learn some measure of self-discipline by working under Dustin, a successful 25-year-old artist who sees potential in the young misfit. Now, just as George begins to see the future as something to embrace rather than something to dread, his lazy past threatens to hinder his forward momentum.
Plot: Paper Man is an inspirational comedic drama about an unlikely friendship between Richard(Jeff Daniels), a failed middle-aged novelist who has never quite grown up and Abby (Emma Stone), a 17-year-old girl whose role in a family tragedy years earlier has stolen away her youth. Both are unsure, both are afraid to take firm steps forward, and both are looking for that special friend—that connection—to help guide them into the future. Since his childhood, Richard has mostly relied on the imaginary one that resides in his head—a costumed superhero known as Captain Excellent (Ryan Reynolds).
This is one of my most favorite movies, I watch it often! The cast is incredible and for all of you OC fans out there you will see someone you recognize!!
Plot (Rotten Tomatoes):
A shocking and tragic event causes the members of a quietly dysfunctional family to reexamine themselves and their lives in this drama. Ben and Sandy Travis (Jeff Daniels and Sigourney Weaver) are a couple whose troubled family begins to crumble when their eldest son, star college athlete Matt (Kip Pardue) commits suicide. Sandy’s naturally cynical nature becomes all the more prickly, and while she tries to bond with her surviving teenaged son, Tim (Emile Hirsch), they seem closest when they discover a shared fondness for marijuana. Ben also tries to reach out to Tim, but the young man is never able to shake the feeling that he’s never quite been the son his father wanted. Tim has a girlfriend, Steph (Suzanne Santo), but their relationship has been going through a rocky patch, and Tim finds himself questioning his feelings about women and men when his friendship with next-door neighbor Kyle (Ryan Donowho) evolves into something more intimate.
