Synopsis

Who decides what is normal? A unique love story about friendship and a view of the world from different perspectives, Waiting For Forever explores the connections people make in the face of life's changes. Best friends while they were growing up, Emma and Will lost touch a long time ago - as far as she knows. To Will, Emma never stopped being the most important person in his life. Believing them to be forever linked, he goes wherever she goes. Will doesn't have a home, a car, or a "real" job. He survives on his talent as a juggler and entertainer - talents honed through years of showing off for Emma. When her father gets sick, Emma returns to their hometown, trying to leave behind her complicated love life and failing career as a TV actress. As its characters face love, death and their own preconceptions, Waiting For Forever questions the realities of life.

Per Theater Chart is Left Out in the Cold

February 8th, 2011

Like last week, only one film reached the $10,000 mark on the per theater chart this past weekend. That film was Cold Weather, which beat my expectations, earning $14,513 in one theater ahead of its VOD demand later this week. More...

The Other Limited Releases

February 4th, 2011

With the Oscar wait officially on, the target audience for the average limited release is a little distracted, which explains why there's not a lot of prime releases this week. There are a few films earning good reviews, including a couple documentaries, as well as a few films with better than average name recognition that are struggling with critics. It will be interesting to see if any can thrive in theaters. More...
