RIDE
2014, Screen Media Films, 93 min, USA, Dir: Helen Hunt

I made this movie for mothers, sons, fathers, daughters, surfers and people who fall apart and come back together,” notes writer-producer-director Helen Hunt of her new comedy, in which she stars as Jackie, a New Yorker editor who follows her son (Brenton Thwaites) to Los Angeles after he drops out of college to become a surfer. Luke Wilson costars as a surf instructor who hits it off with Jackie.


BOTTLE ROCKET
1996, Sony Repertory, 91 min, USA, Dir: Wes Anderson

The movie that introduced Wes Anderson and the Wilson brothers (Owen and Luke) to the world is a sweet, hilarious combination of coming-of-age tale and heist movie. Owen plays a persistently optimistic slacker whose dreams of a big score don't quite mesh with his lack of aptitude for crime and, in the role of elder statesman, James Caan plays the mob boss with whom Wilson and his friends collide.
