Robert Longfellow is a famous playwright who can't seem to catch a break. His recent Broadway play was met with horrible reviews and an early cancellation, and his marriage is being tested as an old flame has reentered his life during a particular moment of weakness. Retreating back to his childhood home to visit his mother, Robert crosses paths with his childhood neighbor, Gus. A right-wing, ex-con who still lives at home with his mother, Gus is Robert's polar opposite in every possible way. When Gus holds Robert hostage at gunpoint during a drunken reunion gone terribly wrong, the drama unfolds as social status, celebrity and the imminent threat of violence converge, building up to a climax that will leave both men forever changed.

Limited Releases are a Marathon and not a Sprint

July 6th, 2012

After several weeks of explosive limited releases, this week seems more subdued. That's not to say there are no limited releases that have a shot at finding an audience, but there's no film that seems likely to open with $40,000, $50,000, or more on the per theater chart. The Do-Deca-Pentathlon has the best chance of being a breakout hit, as it has the best hype. However, while the reviews are good, they didn't live up to the hype, which could hurt it at the box office. More...
