1. Laura Smiles


    from Sion Michel Added

    'Sharp dialogue, idiosyncratic characters and a wickedly brilliant structure that subtly derails expectation make "Laura Smiles" a rarity among mellers. The most unjudgmental view of sex and the suburbs since Kim Novak sought solace from the nearest warm body in "Strangers When We Meet," Jason Ruscio's sophomore feature traces the quietly psycho, often hilarious disintegration of an American housewife (a Tippie Hedren-perfect Petra Wright). With strong critical backing and judicious handling, "Laura" could become an indie American Beauty.' - Variety 2005 Directed by Jasion Ruscio Cinematography by Sion Michel Shot on DV and HD, Laura Smiles was the first Indie DV HD film to be blown up and printed on 35mm Anamorphic by Efilm Los Angeles.

    • The Week That Girl Died - A Comedy


      from Sean Travis Added 351 2 2

      “Disarming and Lively ... Performances are Winning,” -Todd McCarthy, Variety Independent Feature Film, AFI Los Angeles Film Festival Winner, Best New Director, Best Actor The lives of three lifelong buddies in a small New England fishing town will never be the same after The Week That Girl Died, a touching romantic comedy about finding Ms. Right—at all the wrong times. Vinnie (Erik Palladino) bumps into the attractive Jessie (Brigitte Bako) at his uncle's wake, and when his aunt mistakes her for his latest girlfriend, she gladly plays the part—leaving out one small detail. Jimmy (Robert Longstreet) sets his sights on the seedy part of town—only to find love (Justina Machado) waiting for him in the least likely of places. And Ralph (Patrick Fischler) woke up a virgin on Friday morning only to have that situation reversed two times over by Saturday night. With an original score by jazz musician Kevin Eubanks (The Tonight Show with Jay Leno) "The Week That Girl Died” takes the notion of the romantic comedy and gives it a dose of what real people go through.
