Synopsis

In his mid-30s, Abe clings to the trappings of his adolescence, including the extensive collection of toys and action figures adorning his boyhood bedroom. Still living with his parents Jackie and Phyllis, Abe works for his increasingly disappointed Dad and spends evenings ruthlessly trouncing his Mom at backgammon. His older brother Richard's success as a California doctor only feeds Abe’s resentment and rage at his family over his failures. When Abe meets Miranda, whose personal and professional disasters have sent her scrambling back to the safety of her parents’ suburban home, he sees what he thinks is a chance at true love. Abe throws himself into pursuing the overmedicated Miranda, convincing her to marry him after a whirlwind courtship. But, as the couple haltingly prepares to start a new life together, the film swerves into Abe’s subconscious, where his crippling self-doubt and dark fears begin to undermine his nearly realized dream of a fuller life.

Per Theater Chart: Moon Shines Over Wide Releases

June 12th, 2012

For the third weekend in a row, Moonrise Kingdom remained the top film on the per theater chart with an average of $16,247. Again, most limited releases would kill to have an opening week per theater average that high while playing in only a couple theaters. Moonrise Kingdom did it in its third weekend of release while playing in nearly 100 theaters. To call it a success is an understatement. Prometheus finished in second place with $15,032, while the overall box office leader, Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted, was right behind with an average of $14,166. Dark Horse opened with $13,551 in its lone theater. Safety Not Guaranteed opened in ninety theaters, which is a little high for a limited release, but it still earned an impressive average of $10,862. More...

Limited Releases: Success Not Guaranteed

June 8th, 2012

There are quite a few limited releases on this week's list, including quite a few that earned some pre-release buzz: Bel Ami, Dark Horse, Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding, Lola Versus, and Safety Not Guarenteed. Unfortunately, only the last one is earning overwhelmingly positive reviews. Hopefully it will perform well enough that it can escape the art house circuit and earn some measure of mainstream success. More...
