    Branson’s 108 live shows attract seven million visitors a year. With that kind of business, it’s not surprising to find performers of every ilk trying to make it big in this little city tucked away in the scenic Ozark Mountains of southern Missouri’s bible belt. For this engag...

    LAFF | Exorcising Exes: "Harmony and Me" Director Bob Byington

    Break-ups are never easy, especially when your ex-girlfriend already checked out several months before the official end. Twentysomething Harmony, however, just can’t seem to drop his torch for the departed Jessica even as his motley crew of friends, his gleefully odd family, and his obnoxious boss r...
