Synopsis

Two French actors portray two French actors, friends at odds with one another in every possible way, except with regard to their love for performing Moliere's "The Misanthrope". Gauthier; tall, handsome, and the beneficiary of a leading role in a wildly popular, wildly ridiculous soap opera; he is a beloved cosmetic surgeon who "saves lives". Regarding the random nature of his good fortune, Gauthier is both embarrassed and defensive; he seeks to re-establish his acting bona-fides by starring in and directing Moliere on the Paris stage.

Limited Releases: Lockedown

April 25th, 2014

From the Rough poster

It is a busy week for limited releases, but most of the films are earning weak reviews. Several are earning reviews that would be good if they were opening wide, but not good enough to suggest they will thrive in limited release. There are a few of films with truly great reviews, including Blue Ruin, which not only has amazing reviews, but also earned a number of film festival awards.
