It's Indie Film Day


The thought of a life where everything can be solved in an hour and a half to two.
A love story, a midnight massacre, a story of truth, lies and betrayal.

I am an Indie film junkie.

I love the whole idea of independent films.  The stories of love aren't all sunshine and unicorns.  They are big, they are simple, they are messy and they are in essence as real as they are going to get.  No they don't all take place in a house by the ocean.

They take place in middle town New York, or Oneida, anywhere that is in the big bad real world.

"The Girl in the Book" (2015)  

The story of a writer's daughter who works in a publishing house as an assistant, in hopes of becoming a well known editor.  An author befriends her as a child, and writes about their experiences together.  Her life is full of ups, but mostly downs.  At first I started to become very angry with the style of the film. The story behind the father's writing friend... Not to be viewed with children in the room.  Written & Directed by Marya Cohn.

"Set in the world of New York publishing, a young book editor is forced to confront a troubling chapter from her past when a bestselling author re-enters her life." - IMDB

"Like Sunday, Like Rain" (2014)

A more realistic version of a Nanny Diaries type film.  Girl needs a change becomes a Nanny to a very gifted young boy, who is also a child prodigy playing the Cello.

The relationship between the Nanny, and the boy is a more realistic approach.  The boy is wise beyond his year.  The Boy's name is Reggie played by Justin Shatkin, the Nanny Eleanore is played by Leighton Meester, the mother Batbata is played by Debra Messing.  It's a beautiful film, for all ages.  Written and Produced by Frank Whaley.

"Surrounded by wealth and living with abundant resources in Manhattan, 12-year-old cello prodigy Reggie, lives a solitary life lacking only frequently absent parents and friends. Estranged from family, having slacker boyfriend troubles, and fired from her waitressing job, sometimes musician 23-year-old Eleanor needs a new place to live and a new job." - IMDB
