Afternoon Delight
Heading into the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, "Afternoon Delight" wasn't beeping on our radar, but perhaps it should have. The film marks the feature directorial debut of Jill Soloway, a writer and producer behind hit shows "The United States Of Tara" and "Six Feet Under." Even more, she rounded up an excellent trio of leads in Kathryn Hahn, Juno Temple and Josh Radnor. So it's hardly a wonder that not only was the film a success, but an award winner too, earning Soloway a Best Directing trophy in Park City. And now the film is headed to theaters, and as we told you a few weeks back, it's one of the highlights this August.

Earlier this year at Sundance, Chilean director Sebastian Silva ("The Maid") made a splash with two very different movies. The first, "The Crystal Fairy," was a trippy road comedy that starred Michael Cera and Gabby Hoffman and saw a limited theatrical release this summer from IFC Films (read our review here). The other Silva joint was an equally trippy but far darker film that also co-starred Michael Cera called "Magic Magic," which will be released on DVD this week from Sony. It stars Juno Temple as a young girl who descends into madness while visiting her sister abroad (it involves many sleepless nights, hypnotism, a memorable use of a Knife song and finally some kind of witchcraft). We got to talk to Temple about what it was like working with Silva, what her reference points were for the character, and asked about what she's got coming next—Robert Rodriguez's "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," Alexandre Aja's "Horns," and Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" retelling "Maleficent" (where she plays a tiny fairy).

Afternoon Delight, Kathryn Hahn
Jill Soloway may be marking her feature length directorial debut with “Afternoon Delight” but there’s a good chance that she’s been involved with something you’ve enjoyed over the years. As a writer she’s worked on such projects as “United States of Tara,” “Six Feet Under,“ and even a couple of episodes of “The Oblongs”! After getting a few short films under her belt, Jill Soloway turned her sights to writing and directing a feature length dramedy about the difficulties of marriage and prostitutes. It’s a tale as old as time. Journey below to check out the first three clips from the film which features Kathryn Hahn, Juno Temple, Josh Radnor, Jane Lynch and Jessica St. Clair. Here's the official synopsis:

Juno Temple Thomas Vinterberg's 'Far From The Madding Crowd' Carey Mulligan
At only 23 years old, it seem Juno Temple has done it all. She's worked with everyone from Christopher Nolan to Paul W.S. Anderson to Gregg Araki to Noah Baumbach to Robert Rodriguez, and done everything from big budget tentpoles, to indies you might have not even heard of. And the actress continues to pursue her own unique path with yet another interesting career choice, and one picture we're already looking forward to.

Afternoon Delight
Okay, while the idea of a couple in crisis turning to hitting strip clubs to get some heat back in their relationship sounds like advice given a decade ago in Cosmo, it serves as the backdrop for "Afternoon Delight" and you know what? It works, and the first trailer is here to show you some skin and give a tease of what you'll be getting later this year.

It premiered at Sundance earlier this year and played at the Directors' Fortnight last month at Cannes, but it seems Sebastian Silva’s “Magic Magic” will not be playing at a theater near you. Instead, it’s going straight to DVD. What’s up with that? Either way, the first official trailer for the psychological thriller has just been posted online, giving you a taste of what the film’s all about.

The Cannes Film Festival is just around the corner and, as usual, clips from some of the prospective films are starting to make their way to the internet. One such film, which is premiering at the Directors’ Fortnight, is “Magic Magic.” Directed by Sebastian Silva (“The Maid”) and starring Michael Cera, Juno Temple, and Emily Browning, the film already made its North American debut at Sundance earlier this year.

Review: 'The Brass Teapot' Is More Modest Trinket Than Rare Find

Ramma Mosley's “The Brass Teapot," based on a screenplay by Tim Macy, who wrote the short story and the 2007 short film that served as a jumping-off point for this feature, tries hard to be a moral fable, a reflection of today's challenging economic tides and the college graduates weathering them with limited success. With the help of a talented cast, “The Brass Teapot” is able to coast on charm for the first hour, but then the fairytale idea that powers the film runs out of juice, and the last forty-five minutes hurtle toward a wrap-up that feels both awkward and overwrought, needlessly portentous and arriving much too late. Leads Michael Angarano and especially firecracker Juno Temple are the reason to keep watching, but even they cannot breathe life into a compelling concept stretched too thin.

Sundance Review: Stripper Comedy 'Afternoon Delight' Plays Rough But Will Leave You With A Smile On Your Face

The premise of “Afternoon Delight,” admittedly, does not sound terribly appealing: to spice up their sex life, a Silverlake couple goes for a night out at a gentleman’s club and subsequently take in a stripper in need of help. From that logline alone you can glean that their relatively buttoned-up sex lives will get a jolt of temporary excitement, the threat of infidelity will loom larger in their house and this will undoubtedly turn out to be a very big mistake for all of them. Unfortunately for those who may have skipped out on the film because of its broad premise, “Afternoon Delight” is one of the unexpected highlights of this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
