Glass Chin
Bud Gordon coulda been a contendah. They called him “The Saint,” and Bud had it all. But as promising as Bud’s boxing career and talents were, he had an Achilles heel, or rather, a glass chin. So when the glove connected with kisser, Bud went down like a stone. Now, fallen on hard times and living in New Jersey instead of Manhattan, the down-on-his-luck Bud and his live-in girlfriend Ellen no longer live the glamorous life. In fact, they now live in a rather begrimed apartment and the realities of everyday life have hit them hard. But despite it all, Bud still dreams of regaining past glories. Maybe not getting his boxing career up and running, as that ship has passed. But the desire for some kind of redemption burns as bright as his competitive spirit once did.

A couple of years ago writer-director Noah Buschel unleashed his tiny, deeply affecting "Sparrows Dance,"a movie set in a single apartment, with only two characters. For his highly anticipated follow-up (at least by us), he has expanded his palette considerably, this time tackling a modestly scaled crime drama about a down-on-his-luck former boxer (Corey Stoll from "House of Cards") who becomes embroiled in the criminal operation of a weirdo gangster/restaurateur (Billy Crudup), all while struggling to maintain his longtime romantic relationship (Marin Ireland, who starred in "Sparrows Dance"). It's one of the best movies you'll see at this year's Tribeca Film Festival and what's more—we've got an exclusive clip.

This weekend, a movie that is very close to our hearts finally opens. "Sparrows Dance" is a micro-sized indie romantic comedy about a woman (played by Marin Ireland from "Homeland") who refuses to leave her apartment, which makes meeting someone something of a challenge. This changes when her toilet gets backed up and she has to hire a plumber (Paul Sparks from "Boardwalk Empire"). Love blossoms, of course, but as Poison taught us, every rose has its thorns, and this rose is super thorny. We saw the film before last year's Hamptons Film Festival and fell in love. It's just as quirky and fun and technically proficient as something like "Frances Ha," and it's finally seeing the light of day thanks to Tribeca Films.

There are cinematic treasures to be found everywhere, and one movie that struck us last year was first discovered tucked away at the Hamptons International Film Festival. "Sparrows Dance" captivated our own Drew Taylor, who not only called it "deeply affecting, smartly acted and thoroughly charming" in his A-grade review, but named it as his Best Movie That Hasn't Been Picked Up Yet in his 2012 year-end recap. Well, the film now has a home with Tribeca Film and you can soon check it out in the comfort of your own home.

Unfolding as a collage of moments—some sexy, some innocent, some profound, some silly— "28 Hotel Rooms" is an intimate portrait of an affair in which two people wrestle with the intoxication of sex and the confusion of loving more than one person. Starring Chris Messina (most recently seen in "Argo" and "Ruby Sparks") and Marin Ireland (she was in the first season of "Homeland"), this indie drama is directed by Matt Ross, who some know from "Big Love" and we love most from his supporting role in Whit Stillman's "The Last Days of Disco" (he planned the lovably insufferable "Departmental Dan").
