Saturday is THE BIG STAR STUDDED AWARDS GALA, so I'll have loads to write about late Saturday evening. But as a wrap up for Friday, I am featuring three films from Friday that might be of interest. One from Germany, one from France and one American film. There are some incredible films being screened here, my intention is to highlight a few for you. If your community has an "artsy theatre", be sure to support it and check out the foreign films and independent films when they come to town.
Cosmic Radio is an American film-drama, with a bit of politics and romance thrown in for good measure. It was filmed in a place called Idyllwild, CA (a town close to Palm Springs) and is about an anti-establishment radio station that is basically going out of business, causing the station owner's dreams and passions to be shattered. Things heat up when he runs into the daughter of a conservative US Senator who arrives on the scene with plans to prevent the destruction of a nearby forest. The story unfolds with an impact beyond the town, radio station or forest. It is written, directed and edited by Stephen Savage and produced by Ryan R. Johnson. The primary cast members are: Jonathan Sachar, Irene Bedard, Seymour Cassell, Michael Madsen & Wes Studi.
