This classic family film set in 1898, stars Keith Carradine as Papa Nash, Mare Winningham as Aunt Mamie Nash and introduces Skyler Day in the title role.

A precocious nine-year old Ociee Nash is living the carefree life of a tomboy in Mississippi, being raised by her widowed father and two older brothers. When Ociee’s adventures lead to a chance meeting with a gypsy, her father decides it’s time for his daughter to have a “proper unbringing to learn the ways of a lady.” Ociee is uprooted from the Deep South via a train ride to Asheville, North Carolina where her Aunt Mamie, runs a tight ship. Her trek to a new life is only the beginning for Ociee Nash, as she learns that being oneself isn’t always the easiest but it is the most rewarding. Parents Television Council calls it a “great film with positive message and family appeal”. One critic says to “…take the time, take your family, and go see the first G-rated movie to come out in a long time. Ociee reaffirms American family values with perfect style”.

ANIMALS WITH THE TOLLKEEPER (1998) – Never Released, Now Available
Michael Di Jiacomo/100 min/B&W and Color

Praised as intelligent, sensitive, wise, artistic, funny & weird, Animals captures the story of three wayward souls guiding one man’s search for happiness and love. An all star cast includes John Turturro, Rod Steiger, Tim Roth, Mili Avital and Mickey Rooney as the Toll Keeper.

“This is one of the most visually stunning independent films I have ever seen…Animals is the kind of ‘dadaist’ storytelling that represents what independence is all about”, says Geoff Gilmore of the Sundance Film Festival. The L.A. Times claims “Mr. Di Jiacomo is a rarity, a filmmaker who shows a fully developed visual and literary sensibility.” Tim Roth told Sight and Sound Magazine: “[Animals] is very poetic, very beautiful…it just goes to show that there are people out there trying to make these kinds of movies. We’re just vastly outnumbered.”

During its full run at film festivals throughout the world, compassionate fans, including Roman Polanski, Jeremy Irons and Gilles Jacob of the Cannes Film Festival had high hopes for this film. Along with multiple nominations everywhere, Animals was awarded for Best Director at the Sitges Film Festival in Spain, while taking a Jury Prize in Japan. However, by no fault of its own, this award-winning gem was never released due to delays caused by a chain of title issues.

Available to premiere with U.S. and Canadian audiences. Inquire about theatrical bookings, licensing of theatrical, home video and television rights.

William Friedken/119 minute /Color

Excellent filmization of Matt Crowley's landmark play about nine men at a birthday party: eight are gay, the ninth insists he's not. Often hilarious, frequently sad, but always thought provoking and sensationally acted by the original stage cast. This is a rare case where a single, claustrophobic set is actually an asset. With Cliff Gorman, Laurence Luckenbill, Ken Nelson, Peter White, Leonard Frey

Mike Valerio/90minutes/Color

Offbeat contemporary comedy, in the spirit of My Big Fat Greek Wedding which centers on the memorial service of Italian-American patriarch Carlo Torello (Martin Landau) and the effect his death has on his colorful, if not dysfunctional family.

Dreams in the Attic is a family drama featuring Jessica, a typical teen who wants to be popular like her best friend Nicole – at any cost. Though she thinks her job at Aunt Nellie’s (Shelley Duvall) costume shop stifles her non-existent social life, it pleases her mother, Sharon (Mary McDonough). Unbeknownst to Nellie, Jessica discovers strange customers in a secret attic above the costume shop that can change the attitudes and morals of anyone Jessica chooses. The costumes possess the power to transport who ever wears them to a different life, time and place. When Jessica wears an old letterman jacket, she finds herself in a 50’s soda fountain! Can she help her friend Kyle, who is too quick to judge others? Can she convince Nicole that the mystical attic even exists?

When Jessica’s brother Joel doesn’t return from his attic adventure, Jessica reluctantly solicits the aid of her aunt to rescue him. Aunt Nellie, who is aware of Jessica’s exploits in the attic, wisely warns: “one must be careful of their ‘Dreams in the Attic’…someday, they might come true!”

Haylie Duff, (Napoleon Dynamite), sister of Hillary Duff and Nickolodeon Kid’s Choice Award Winner 2002, puts on a convincing performance as the teen age drama queen but shows the audience a sweet side and good message that make this an ideal kid’s flick.

Ate de Jong/97 minutes/Color

Erotic thriller of three people – a married couple and their best friend, are traveling along the isolated roads of a mountain range. Slowly a dense fog begins to take shape, covering everything in its path until it reaches the road and envelopes the group’s vehicle. As the loneliness of the three intensifies, the atmosphere grows dangerously volatile. They turn to aggravation, accusation and confession; even revelation of the husband’s strange flashbacks to his former life as French aristocrat on a sadistic bent. The next morning, when the fog finally lifts, one of the three is dead…Cast includes Luke Perry, Ben Daniels and Orla Brady. Set up like one of Bertolt Brecht's stage plays, Fogbound is offbeat stuff, often compared to Polanski’s Knife in the Water.

Peter Fonda/90 minutes/Color/

Coming off the success of Easy Rider, Peter Fonda made his directorial debut with The Hired Hand: a story of a cowboy who returns home to the wife and daughter he abandoned seven years earlier. This graceful film is a complex study of human relationships and disillusionment with the American way of life at that time. Newly cut and restored, this cult-fave Western continues to claim a special place in the hearts and minds of its most passionate admirers. Martin Scorcese personally selected Hired Hand for a recent revival screening at the first the Tribeca Film Festival in Manhattan. Clint Eastwood has acknowledged its “gritty realism” as a major influence behind his own Unforgiven. Though it originally opened over 30 years ago, today’s critics are naming it one of the decade’s best films, standing along side other classics like The Last Picture Show and Five Easy Pieces.

Film Noir
Curtis Harrington/83 minutes/Color

Cult Film Director Curtis Harrington’s The Killing Kind is an undiscovered classic. Oscar™ Nominee John Savage (The Deer Hunter, Thin Red Line) shines in an early role, which calls for him to present disturbing behavior ranging from his private fantasies, to brutal murders and the twisted relationship with his domineering mother, played by veteran actress Ann Sothern.

Harrington’s direction is taut, the murder scenes brutal and realistic in a non-exploitive sort of way. While What’s the Matter with Helen? may be Harrington’s most known film, Killing Kind is arguably far superior in many ways with some darkly humorous moments, and plenty of genuine suspense. As is the case in many of Harrington’s films there is a great and unexpected ending to this film noir. A very young Cindy Williams (American Graffiti, Laverne & Shirley) also gives a good performance in a supporting role.

LADY FOR A DAY (1933) – 4 Academy Award Nominations

When the daughter decides to come home with rich suitor & his family in tow, William is bullied into helping his good luck charm out. He arranges for all his molls and thugs to pretend to be New York aristocracy, including Guy Kibbee (who gives an excellent performance as well). But, all doesn't go smoothly, hence the comedy! Other fine support given by Ned Sparks & Nat Pendleton among others.
