Synopsis

Once upon a time, Keith Michaels was an Award-winning Hollywood screenwriter, but divorce and a string of unsuccessful films have left him with nothing but bad debts and blank pages. So when his agent arranges a job as guest screenwriting professor at a remote university in upstate New York, a desperate Keith can't say no. Initially hoping to give minimal effort to actual teaching so he can focus on his next script, Keith unexpectedly finds himself becoming invested in his students lives, including Holly, a single mom looking to start her own new chapter.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for March 31st, 2015

March 30th, 2015

This week on the home market is another week that is good on top, but shallow in terms of depth.

Of these four, I went with Veep as the Pick of the Week. More...

What We Do in the Shadows poster
