KEANU REEVES AND WINONA RYDER TO STAR IN DESTINATION WEDDING FOR DIRECTOR VICTOR LEVIN



DESTINATION WEDDING sees Reeves and Ryder renew a fan-favorite on-screen partnership that began with Francis Ford Coppola's Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992) and has included Richard Linklater's A Scanner Darkly (2006).  Most recently, Reeves reprised his role in John Wick: Chapter 2 for Summit Entertainment and received critical acclaim in Marti Noxon’s To The Bone, which was released by Netflix last month.  Ryder has been lauded for her performance in the immensely poplar Netflix series Stranger Things, which earned her a Golden Globe® and Screen Actors Guild® nomination for her role as “Joyce Byers”. Stranger Things 2 will premiere on Netflix on October 27th.

Writer-Director Levin's debut film, 5 to 7 (2015) starred Anton Yelchin, BΓ©rΓ©nice Marlohe, Frank Langella and Glenn Close.  A Golden Globe winner and four-time Emmy nominee, his previous writing work has included Mad About You, Mad Men, Win a Date with Tad Hamilton (2004) and Then She Found Me (2008).  He is currently an executive producer, writer and director for the critically-acclaimed Starz comedy Survivor's Remorse.

Lyon and Dell teamed for this project.  Previous credits for Lyon include Gattaca, Erin Brockovich, Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!, and Edge of Darkness.  Dell’s credits include B-Girl, and the series Logan Paul Vs.

“The Fyzz is incredibly excited to work with Vic, Gail, Elizabeth and Cassian and to be a part of Destination Wedding," The Fyzz Facility’s Robert Jones said.  "When comedy is seated in character and truth it’s both funny and moving, and on that basis Vic’s screenplay is one of the best I’ve read in a long time. Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves are wonderfully skilful actors and their chemistry on-screen truly brings these irascible characters to life. Their unswerving commitment to the project is a testament to both material and director.”

“Elizabeth and I have both known Vic a long time," Gail Lyon said, "and it’s been our collective pleasure to work together, along with Cassian and The Fyzz, to bring this movie to life. Keanu and Winona bring a lot of
history and chemistry to their roles, which adds a wonderful dimension to their performances and their dynamic.”

Internet Trolls and Critics in the Age of Rotten Tomatoes - A Look at the Critical Response to GOTTI

Hate, intolerance, and cruelty are the most valued currencies in the digital age. Online publications deal in the same eye-catching tabloid headlines that were once exclusive to rags like WEEKLY WORLD NEWS and the NATIONAL ENQUIRER. The monetization of clicks is ruining many forms of journalism and film criticism is just one of them. When organizations can see what headlines are generating revenue its only natural that sensationalism would start to rise. There is no consorted hivemind like conspiracy to destroy certain films but rather internet activity that has boosted a certain type of writer. From the outside, online film critics share quite a bit with their Twitter troll counterparts.

The critical response to John Travolta's passion project Gotti has been less than favorable, in fact, it has been downright abysmal. A project over ten years in the making, Travolta has poured his heart and soul into this venture. And many writers seem to take pleasure in the film's failure.

NO ALTERNATIVE review

Depression is often marked by sadness, despair, and hopelessness. The sense that things will not get better is something most of us pass through at different points in our lives. But depression is something more than that. It’s not just a temporary feeling, it’s a debilitating emotional state that you can’t simply pull yourself out of. The angry outbursts, irritability, and frustration that come along with depression can isolate individuals suffering from this condition and push them deeper into their own thoughts. Everyone needs to be heard and sometimes those who can’t express themselves in traditional forms find their voice in art.
Edvard Munch wrestled with agoraphobia and frequently had hallucinations, one of which inspired THE SCREAM, a painting so iconic that even the most casual art enthusiast is familiar with the piece.  Sylvia Plath took a more direct approach with THE BELL JAR and laid out the details of her depression with brutal honesty.
