The Tribeca Film Festival is rolling out more first-looks. First off, is director Steph Green’s latest endeavor, entitled "Run and Jump." The film marks Green’s return to Tribeca after winning in the Best Short Narrative category in 2008 for her film "New Boy." "Run and Jump" stars "Saturday Night Live" alumnus Will Forte in a rare dramatic turn (perhaps a preview of things to come in Alexander Payne's "Nebraska"), Ruth McCabe, and Edward MacLiam. It follows an Irish wife and mother who find herself having to band her family together after her husband suffers a stroke.

Whatever happened to the director of "Jawbreaker"? Well, Darren Stein never really went away, he had two pictures after his 1990s teen comedy, but neither resonated much, but he's back with to teen territory with "GBF" (Gay Best Friend).

It stars lot of relative newcomers Michael J. Willett, Sasha Pieterse, Xosha Roquemore, Evanna Lynch with a supporting cast that includes "Jawbreaker" alum Rebecca Gayheart, Megan Mullally, Natasha Lyonne, Jonathan Silverman and Horatio Sanz. The synopsis below.

The bitter fight for supremacy between a school’s most popular girls takes an unexpected turn when Tanner (Michael J. Willett) becomes its first openly gay student. As they race to bag the big trend in fashion accessories, the Gay Best Friend, Tanner must choose between skyrocketing popularity and the friends he is leaving behind. Darren Stein (Jawbreaker) returns with another comic send-up of high school clique culture, including memorable cameos by Megan Mullally and Natasha Lyonne.

Can it move the needle like teen comedies of yore? Time will tell.
