    Steve Carell and Keira Knightley On The Run From The Apocalypse: 'Seeking a Friend ...'

    Seeking a Friend for the End of the World is something rare: a sunny, charming apocalypse film. Even the off-beat pairing of Steve Carell and Keira Knightley – what?! – works better than you’d imagine, evidence that Carell really can do anything, even play a romantic lead. No...

    ABFF 2012 Review - 'Beasts Of The Southern Wild' (A Striking Feature Debut On Courage & Resiliency)

    L.A. Film Fest Review: 'Sister' Is A Beautifully Bleak Coming Of Age Story

    A young child is dressing in a bathroom stall. We can’t tell what he looks like, as he layers on shapeless winter clothing and a neoprene mask hides all discernible features save for a pair of bright, knowing eyes.
