Exclusive Unleashed Clip: I Will Come To You

Pets? Men? Who can tell the difference? The success of a silly premise always depends on the ability of the performers to commit to said premise with a serious conviction. In the case of Unleashed, the deadpan humor looks like it's delivered perfectly by Kate Micucci, Justin Chatwin, Sean Astin and Steve Howey. Micucci has shown her range of comic talents in The Little Hours and Don't Think Twice while Chatwin and Howey are familiar (to me, at least) from TV's Shameless, and Sean Astin, is, well Sean Astin, whose performances I always enjoy. Here's the synopsis: Emma, a brilliant but awkward app designer, moves to San Francisco after a massive betrayal by her boyfriend with only her beloved pets, an adorable cat and an...

August 2017 Film Preview

The Glass Castle

With summer drawing to a close, August brings a bevy of films by and about women that engage with quirky themes and unique perspectives. The month kicks off with “Step,” Amanda Lipitz’ documentary about a girls’ step dance team based in Baltimore. In particular, “Step” follows a group of high school seniors as they prepare to graduate and become the first in their families to head to college.

In the second week of August, we’ll see a pair of films centered on women recreating their lives. “The Glass Castle,” the film adaptation of Jeannette Walls’ bestselling memoir, follows a young woman’s struggle to break free of her dysfunctional parents. The dark comedy “Ingrid Goes West” sees a mentally unstable Aubrey Plaza travel to Los Angeles determined to build a friendship with an Instagram influencer.

August 18 brings the release of “Patti Cake$,” focused on New Jersey girl with dreams of being a hip-hop performer, and the U.S. opening of the highly-anticipated documentary “Whitney: Can I Be Me,” a portrait of the late singer Whitney Houston. Also being released are a pair of women-written horror films: “The Ice Cream Truck,” in which a woman moves to a suburban neighborhood plagued by a murderous ice cream truck driver, and “The Monster Project,” about a group of filmmakers who accidentally summon other-worldly beings.

At the end of the month, Eliza Hittman’s Sundance darling “Beach Rats” arrives, a film woven from themes like teenage rebellion, sex, and love. The long-gestating “Tulip Fever” will also open. The period romance stars Alicia Vikander as an unhappily married woman who falls for the artist (Dane DeHaan) hired to paint her portrait.

Here are all of the women-centric, women-directed, and women-written films debuting in August. All descriptions are from press materials unless otherwise noted.

Four moms (Katie Aselton, Toni Collette, Bridget Everett, and Molly Shannon), whose only connection is their kids’ preschool class, decide to get together for a harmless “fun mom dinner.” The night begins as a disaster, but the combination of alcohol, karaoke, and a cute bartender leads to an unforgettable night where these seemingly different women realize they have more in common than motherhood and men.

Kidnap

When Ingrid moves to La and manages to insinuate herself into the social media star’s life, their relationship quickly goes from #Bff to #Wtf. “Ingrid Goes West” is a savagely hilarious dark comedy that satirizes the modern world of social media and proves that being #perfect isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Eighty-six-year-old Marjorie (Lois Smith) spends her final, ailing days with a computerized version of her deceased husband (Jon Hamm). With the intent to recount their life together, Marjorie’s “Prime” relies on the information from her and her kin to develop a more complex understanding of his history. As their interactions deepen, the family begins to develop ever diverging recounts of their lives, drawn into the chance to reconstruct the often painful past. “Marjorie Prime” shines a light on an often-obscured corner in the world of artificial intelligence and its interactions with mortality, and forces us to ask, “If we had the opportunity, how would we choose to rebuild the past, and what would we decide to forget?”

In a not so distant future, where overpopulation and famine have forced governments to undertake a drastic “One Child Policy,” seven identical sisters live a hide-and-seek existence pursued by the Child Allocation Bureau.

Taught by their grandfather (Willem Dafoe), who raised and named them — Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday — each can go outside once a week as their common identity, but are only free to be themselves in the prison of their own apartment.

Trailer for Pet Transformation Comedy 'Unleashed' with Kate Micucci

Love is a four-legged word. Level 33 Entertainment has debuted a new official trailer for the indie comedy titled Unleashed, written and directed by Finn Taylor. Yet another pet transformation movie, instead of a person turning into an animal, this time it's two animals turning into two people - two perfect guys. Kate Micucci stars as a woman who moves to San Francisco with her two pets after a break up, and learns about herself when they become these guys. Also starring Justin Chatwin, Steve Howey, Sean Astin, Illeana Douglas, Hana Mae Lee, and Josh Brener. This definitely looks very cheesy and almost way too quirky, but I like that the guys still act like her cat and dog, that makes it a bit more interesting. Have a look below.

Movie Review – Unleashed (2016)

Unleashed, 2016.

Written and Directed by Finn Taylor.

Starring Kate Micucci, Justin Chatwin, Steve Howey, Illeana Douglas, Hana Mae Lee, and Sean Astin.

Synopsis:

When a cosmic event turns Emma’s dog and cat into two perfect guys, Emma reconsiders her outlook on dating, hilariously works out her trust issues, and ultimately learns to love herself.

The plot of Finn Taylor’s Unleashed doesn’t take much to explain. A cat and a dog become men one night and try to re-enter their owner’s life as humans. Far from the target audience for this picture, I’m not a pet owner and have cared for betta fish, but a standard recitation of plot doesn’t serve to expound this movie enough.

Unleashed is an actor’s playground and it’s the cast’s commitment to staying in character that takes this picture further than feel good lite cinema. Shameless co-stars,
