Our previous film, Go with Le Flo has been popular on iTunes. At this writing we're back on the "New & Noteworty" section in foreign films: http://apple.co/1ME425T
I'm a fan of Billy Wilder, Ernst Lubitsch, Preston Sturges, Howard Hawks. Our films are in that spirit, and have some 1930's flavor to them.

Sister Sarah's Sky
Film by Michael Glover (Comedy) Actor, Writer, Director, Producer, Editor, Cinematographer Sarah is a misunderstood 14-year-old from a conservative Connecticut family who rebels by secretly studying Marxism. She spends the summer in California with her Bohemian aunt, uncle, and their eccentric artist friends and gets a different perspective on life. Through a series of letters home, Sarah establishes the long-missing emotional connection with her parents. A movie filled with original music, dancing, and surreal dream sequences. The Orange County Register said in a review of the film: "Although rated G, Sister Sarah's Sky delivers an artful and intelligent comedic look at everything from communism and capitalism to meditation and the music industry. The film also takes a surprisingly deep look at the forces that can divide and reunite families." Written by Michael Glover
Television by David E. Kelley (Comedy, Crime, Drama and Mystery) Actor Ethically-challenged attorney Alan Shore, formerly of Young, Frutt & Berluti, settles in at a wealthy and powerful firm focusing on civil cases. With some help from his friend and mentor, veteran attorney Denny Crane, Shore quickly makes his mark winning cases no one would take, often using less than honest methods. In doing so, he develops a rival in his colleague Brad Chase, who has been assigned to the office partly to keep an eye on the increasingly eccentric (and possibly senile) Denny Crane. Though his questionable conduct might make him a few enemies along the way, Alan's not one to be underestimated, nor will he let trivial things like honesty or integrity get in the way of winning a case.

The Last Shot
Film by Jeff Nathanson (Comedy) Actor, Soundtrack FBI director Jack Devine always sets up his brother Joe as undercover to trick mobsters. His latest cover is as movie producer Joe Diamond, to get Tommy Sanz for Teamster racketeering. His cover requires a script - the one movie theater manager Steven Schats and his brother Marshall 'Paris' wrote, supposedly a cancer biopic. So Steven is hired as director, his greatest dream, even if producing an Arizona desert drama on Rhode Island is far from ideal. When a former Oscar nominee volunteers to star, the cover gets out of hand till everyone believes in it, even the FBI brass- or not? Written by KGF Vissers
