'God Help the Girl' and an Ed Harris Tribute Round Out the 2nd La Costa Film Festival

The La Costa Film Festival is taking on any potential sophomore slump with an ambitious program. The second incarnation of the festival — hosted in beachy Carlsbad, CA — will screen 42 films from 13 countries, hold a world premiere (“Brothers In Exile”), host a special tribute to Ed Harris and feature numerous panels and events (including galas).
