Linus and Lucy
Screenplay: Woody Allen
Director: Wes Anderson
Starring: Victoria LeGrand (Beach House), Joseph Gordon Levitt, and Owen Wilson
Summary: A moody, aspiring poet, Lucy (LeGrand), and her lovably pathetic twin brother, Linus (Levitt), return to their hometown after their childhood friend (Owen Wilson) has committed suicide. Unable to cope with their current artistic, romantic, and financial failures, the twins are forced to face their past. Things are hilariously somber and not a whole lot happens, except for some Truffaut and Fellini references. Everyone is monotone and Lucy reads a poem at the funeral. It goes like this:
Where you thinkin' that you gotta run to now
With the beating of a tiny heart?
Hang on to the things that you're supposed to say
Billions of stars that open to your fate.
Daniel Rossen of Grizzly Bear makes a cameo as childhood friend, Schroeder.
There Will Be Eternal Sunshine of the Machine Dreams
Screenplay: Charlie Kaufman
Director: Paul Thomas Anderson
Starring: Yukimi Nagano (Little Dragon), Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Gael Garcia Bernal.
Summary: Sarah (Nagona), a lonely woman spends lonely nights full of lonesomeness all alone pinning over her ex-boyfriend (Philip Seymour Hoffman), altering her memories of their relationship while also starting a plunger business. She meets David (Gael Garcia Bernal), a strange man in a blue suit who is obsessed with Sarah and says odd things like “I could never have what you have,” and “rather be a bandit than a lover.”
Sarah starts to question what is real and what is a memory/halluciation/drug trip and things quit making sense.There is a cameo by Wayne Coyne as an evangelical minister who wears a white suit drenched in blood and obsesses over space, robots, and love.
Coming Summer of 2011.
