10 questions with director Pene Patrick (Playing for Charlie) at Atlanta Film Festival blog

Atlanta Film Festival 2009 will be happening soon (April 16 - 25), so here's a little bit about one of the films - Playing for Charlie - through an interview with its director Pene Patrick (from the ATLFF blog):

"The main character of Playing for Charlie, Tony, is a rugby player, torn between the game and supporting his family, specifically his younger brother Charlie. One could say life is a ruffian's game and the question audiences will most definitely mull over as they watch Playing for Charlie is: Can Tony remain a gentleman? It's not surprising that we have so many sports related films this year, since there's definitely symbolism in the distinctions between sport, where talent is instantly recognizable and rules offer comfort, and life off the field, in which rules seem to shift constantly and talent often goes neglected and undernourished.

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.

Great movie, well written, well acted.  An interesting NYC experience.

Check out the movie at Netflix -
