Young Director Says His Jason Reitman-Produced 'The Ornate Anatomy Of Living Things' Still Needs A Script Polish And Will Have To Wait"Ceremony," the feature debut by Max Winkler hits VOD tomorrow, and for those that track it down, they'll be rewarded with a film that shows off a young filmmaker who has firmly made a mark that he's a director on-the-rise. The film stars Michael Angarano and Uma Thurman and tells the story of Sam (Angarano), a young brazen adult who stalks his penpal and ex-girlfriend Zoe (Thurman) all the way to her wedding in the Hamptons to try and win her back. It's a delicate balance between a broad comedy and a quieter character piece and Winkler navigates those tones with an assured hand. We spoke with the director on the eve of his film's release and he revealed that his next project will be influenced by one of the great unsung classic films of the 1970s and should find him again weaving a variety of tones and textures.

We love the grainy, half-blurry shot of Uma Thurman and Michael Angarano in this new poster for "Ceremony," the debut feature-length directorial debut of Max Winkler (son of Henry Winkler), as it perfectly captures the ragged heart romance that's central to the film.
