I can’t give you a review of the films because I’ve too busy snapping photos all over Atlanta… but I can say EACH of the directors and actors have been amazing and super nice on the red carpet. Too Funny… I’m over 40 years old and was totally paralyzed with the cast of Everybody Wants Some!! The guys Ryan Guzman, Tyler Hoechlin, Blake Jenner and Will Brittain were so fun and HANDSOME… I had to take a deep breath before hitting the shutter button. LOL!
Here’s a few highlights from the films:
A new ‘spiritual sequel’ to “Dazed and Confused” set in the world of 1980 college life, “Everybody Wants Some!!” is a comedy that follows a group of friends as they navigate their way through the freedoms and responsibilities of unsupervised adulthood. Get ready for the best weekend ever.
Having suffered a tragedy, Ben’s life is on hold. In need of work, he becomes a caregiver, where he is put through his paces by his first client, Trevor, a hilarious 18-year-old from England with muscular dystrophy. Instead of bowing to Trevor’s irreverent tactics, Ben treats Trevor in a way no caregiver has ever done before: without kid gloves. One paralyzed emotionally, one paralyzed physically, the two bond through humor in a way only broken people can. They hit the open road on a trip that takes them through the majestic pines of the Pacific Northwest, the foothills of Idaho and Montana, and finally through the open plains of the American Southwest. Along the way, they find some other lost souls, including a 21-year-old runaway who is the sexiest girl Trevor has ever seen in person and not on TV.
Filmed in Atlanta, “Confirmation” takes a look behind the curtain of Washington politics, depicting the explosive 1991 Clarence Thomas Supreme Court nomination hearings where Anita Hill accused him of sexual harassment. The hearings brought the country to a standstill & became a pivotal moment in American culture changing how we perceive and experience workplace equality & gender politics.
