SUPERSTAR
1999, Paramount, 81 min, USA, Dir: Bruce McCulloch

The “SNL movie” phenomenon was never more gleefully inside-out than with SUPERSTAR, the funtastic origin story of “television's most endearing insecure extrovert” (New York Times.) Molly Shannon lays down the comedic law as Mary Katherine Gallagher, a Catholic schoolgirl with showbiz aspirations equally as mondo as her skewed sexual awakening. An absurd, subversive ‘90s ride - and the only film co-starring both MTV’s Tom Green and MARY POPPINS’ Glynis Johns.


TRUST ME
2013, Starz Digital Media, 90 min, USA, Dir: Clark Gregg

THE AVENGERS’ Clark Gregg directs and stars as former child actor Howard Holloway, who now represents young performers - at least the ones not stolen away by rival agent Aldo Shocklee (Sam Rockwell). Holloway thinks he’s hit the jackpot when an unsigned teen actress (Saxon Sharbino, in a breakout performance) about to land a major role enlists his services … but things aren’t always what they seem in Hollywood. This dark comedy boasts an outstanding ensemble cast, including Felicity Huffman, Allison Janney, William H. Macy, Amanda Peet and Molly Shannon.
