ENCHANTING NEW FILMS: 'BIG STONE GAP' WITH ASHLEY JUDD, PATRICK WILSON, WHOOPI GOLDBERG, 'HOLDING THE MAN' WITH GUY PEARCE, RYAN CORR, 'A BRILLIANT YOUNG MIND' WITH ASA BUTTERFIELD, RAFE SPALL

STAR STUDDED 'BIG STONE GAP'
ASHLEY JUDD, PATRICK WILSON, WHOOPI GOLDBERG, JENNA ELFMAN, JANE KRAKOWSKI
Three enchanting new smaller films for you today, starting with star studded  BIG STONE GAP out this October. Big Stone Gap is home to some of the most charming eccentrics in the state. Ave Maria Mulligan (Ashley Judd) is the town's self proclaimed spinster, a thirty-five year old pharmacist with a "mountain girl's body and a flat behind." She lives an amiable life with good friends and lots of hobbies until the fateful day in 1978 when she suddenly discovers that she's not who she always thought she was. Before she can blink, Ave's fielding marriage proposals, fighting off greedy family members, organizing a celebration for visiting celebrities, and planning the trip of a lifetime, a trip that could change her view of the world and her own place in it forever. Jane Krakowski, Patrick Wilson, Whoopi Goldberg, Jenna Elfman, Anthony LaPaglia all star!

'HOLDING THE MAN' 
GAY ROMANCE MOVIE WITH GUY PEARCE AND RYAN CORR
A charming movie hitting Australian cinemas this month is gay true story romance HOLDING THE MAN with Guy Pearce and again Anthony LaPaglia and Ryan Corr whom we loved this year in BANISHED epic drama! Tim and John fell in love while teenagers at their all-boys high school. John was captain of the football team, Tim an aspiring actor playing a minor part in Romeo and Juliet. Their romance endured for 15 years to laugh in the face of everything life threw at it - the separations, the discrimination, the temptations, the jealousies and the losses - until the only problem that love can't solve, tried to destroy them.


'A BRILLIANT YOUNG MIND'
 RAFE SPALL & ASA BUTTERFIELD
Meanwhile, a movie which already played in UK is ready to hit US big screens this September. Previously known as X+Y, and now A BRILLIANT YOUNG MIND, the movie is set in a world difficult to comprehend, where Nathan (Asa Butterfield) struggles to connect with those around him - most of all his loving mother (Sally Hawkins) - but finds comfort in numbers. When Nathan is taken under the wing of unconventional and anarchic teacher, Mr. Humphreys (Rafe Spall), the pair forge an unusual friendship and Nathan's talents win him a place on the UK team at the International Mathematics Olympiad. From suburban England to bustling Taipei and back again, Nathan builds complex relationships as he is confronted by the irrational nature of love.

  1. Big Stone Gap sounds like it could be a good date movie for the wife and I, so long as Whoopi's part is a small one. Not sure why, but that woman annoys me to no end. *shudder*

    4. Which insurgent was kind of rare, it's hard to return to a movie when your character dies in the first, but she does
