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.
Next up is Oscar-winner
Melissa Leo in director Enid Zentelis’ "Bottled Up" which sets-up the makings for a
compelling drama about the nature of addiction. It’ll debut in the Narrative section of the
festival this April. The film co-stars Josh Hamilton and Marin Ireland who had a little stint on "Homeland" last season. The synopsis is as follows:
Complaining of back pain months after a car accident, Sylvie’s (Marin Ireland) addiction
to painkillers is clear to everyone except her mother, Faye (Leo). A promising solution
appears in Becket (Josh Hamilton), but relationships and loyalty are soon tested when his
feelings fall in an unexpected place.
Zentelis went to Sundance in 2004, and was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize with
her film "Evergreen." Meanwhile, Leo has bene working steadily post-"The Fighter," but "Bottled Up" looks to return her to the gritty material that caught the Academy’s
attention back in 2008 with "Frozen River."
