DARING TO BE DIFFERENT: THE ARTIST

user
by Allison Leu Film today reflects today’s world, one that is constantly looking forward, making improvements and advancements. The big blockbusters in Hollywood typically fall under the category of big budget action franchises that utilize all the latest technology. Just look at the 3D craze of recent years.  I won’t say I wasn’t sitting in that theatre for M-I 4: Ghost Protocol or Captain America. Those CGI-laden, explosion-filled movies are perfect for the big screen. But ...

THINK OF ME

Director: Bryan Wizemann.
Las Vegas. Present day. A downward spiraling economy. Think of Me is the heartbreaking story of Angela Jerome (Lauren Ambrose, SIX FEET UNDER), a young single mother doing her level best not to fall apart. Her daughter Sunny (newcomer Audrey Scott) is one of the few joys in her life, but raising a child alone is a struggle on even the best of days. When the worst week of Angela's life builds to a breaking point, she is faced with an impossible choice: keep trying to make things work, or let it all go for the promise of something better. Co-starring Dylan Baker (HAPPINESS) as Max, a nihilistic reflection of Las Vegas itself, and his sister, Louise (Penelope Ann Miller, THE ARTIST), whose self-interested offer of 'help' becomes the hardest decision Angela will ever have to make.

It Happened in The Valley...Casablanca via Van Nuys

When The Valley Film Festival was first founded, one of the main reasons was to correct cinema history. Sort of. For instance, when you think of the classic film Casablanca, you think "Hollywood" when you should be thinking Burbank and Van Nuys...The Valley! When Isla's plane takes off, leaving a broken-hearted Rick behind on the airstrip in Casablanca, it wasn't from the comforts of the Warner Bros. lot like the rest of the film...in Burbank...but what is now the Van Nuys...
