Synopsis

The Giant Mechanical Man is a charming comedic romance between Janice, a woman in her 30's who has yet to learn how to navigate adulthood, and Tim, a devoted street performer who finds that his unique talents as a "living statue" don't exactly pay the bills. Out of work and crashing with her overbearing sister, Janice is on the receiving end of well-intentioned but misguided pressure to date an egotistical self-help guru. Everyone seems to know what's best for Janice, but Tim helps her find her own voice and realize that it only takes one person to make you feel important.

Limited Releases: Hunting for the Best

April 27th, 2012

It's a very busy week for limited releases with a dozen films on this week's list. This includes a number of films earning overwhelmingly positive reviews or earning some pre-release buzz. Jesus Henry Christ, Headhunters, Booker's Place, and Sound of My Voice all have a shot at earning some measure of mainstream success. I doubt all four will, because there's just too much competition for limited dollars, but hopefully at least a couple will do so. More...
