IFC News offers up a unique angle as part of its Summer Movie Preview. Stephen Saito breaks down some of the new films you can catch over the next few months, at “Anywhere But a Movie Theater.” We’re thrilled that he included a few Cinetic offerings in the mix:
Cinetic Rights Management is set to raise the curtain on three films this summer that one can watch from the comfort of their computer — on May 8th, “Office” star Melora Hardin will premiere her directorial debut, “You,” a true family affair that was produced with her husband Gildart Jackson, who also stars in the film as a man left to raise his young daughter alone after a tragic accident. The cast is populated with familiar faces like “Smallville”‘s Allison Mack and Joely Fisher. In June, Brooklynite Dawn Scibilia’s Emmy Award-winning doc “Home,” featuring interviews with Liam Neeson, Mike Myers and Susan Sarandon, among others, waxing nostalgic about their love of living in New York, comes to your home. And July will see the online debut of Michael Almereyda’s latest drama “New Orleans, Mon Amour,” starring Christopher Eccleston as a philandering Dr. Jekyll, who plots a return to normalcy in post-Katrina New Orleans with thoughts of reuniting with his ex-wife when Hyde (Elisabeth Moss), the woman who ruined their marriage, reappears in town… In June, SnagFilms will host the online premieres of two festival favorites — Tim Hotchner’s “Accelerating America,” an inspirational 2008 Seattle Film Fest selection about a school in Rhode Island that gives at-risk high school dropouts a second chance.
