After a long wait ‘All Good Things’ finally has a release date: December 2010. The trailer has been very hard to get a lengthy view. It does look like a very intense film.
Here is what EW has to say about it:
Andrew Jarecki, the filmmaker behind 2003′s riveting documentary Capturing the Friedmans, has finally found a theatrical distributor for his first feature film All Good Things, starring Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst. Magnolia Pictures has acquired all rights to the drama and will release the film this December.
Jarecki, who founded MovieFone prior to becoming a filmmaker, bought his film back from the Weinstein Co. in March after waiting over a year for the beleaguered player to release the drama he filmed back in 2008. All Good Things was inspired by the real-life story of Robert Durst, the real estate scion suspected of, but never tried for, killing his wife Kathie, who disappeared in 1982 and was never found. “Because it is impossible to know exactly what happened, we have not tried to replicate the history of the case, but to capture the emotion and complexity of this unsolved mystery that has for years been kept hidden from public view,” says Jarecki, who produced the film along with Marc Smerling, Michael London, and Bruna Papandrea. Jarecki developed the script with Smerling and Marcus Hinchey.
The Weinstein Co. will handle the foreign sales of the film but Jarecki is counting on the team who released Friedmans to distribute his latest endeavor stateside. All Good Things will be the second Gosling drama to bow in December. Ironically, the Weinstein Co. will bow the Sundance hit Blue Valentine, where Gosling stars opposite Michelle Williams, on Dec. 31.
This is a review (with photos) from last weekends show. The photos are brilliant, check them out.
Good news! It turns out that I don’t hate the Eagle Rock Center for the Arts. After a recently witnessing a complete failure of a show at the out-of-the-way venue, I was worried that the venue only occasionally offered relevant shows for a reason. But Dead Man’s Bones, the musical project of Ryan Gosling and Zach Shields, is not something that comes around every day. In fact, the group (which also includes the Silver Lake Children’s Conservatory Choir) played one of the best shows I have ever been to during their last stop in town, which was on Halloween appropriately enough. But a little research into this two-night event made it clear that I was not getting the same show I had previously enjoyed. In fact, I was not going to see a show like anything I had previously seen. It is amazing what looking at a flyer or website or literally any advanced media before going to a show can do for your expectations (this goes out to the angry and confused Notebook fans who apparently didn’t bother to read anything about this ahead of time).
