Some movies are touching. Some movies, on the other hand, are about touching — you know, touching people, touching skin, touching lives. All of that sort of thing.
Case in point: The new Apple Trailers clip for the Sundance hit "Touchy Feely," in which everybody touches everybody else, either literally or metaphorically and sometimes inappropriately.
Consider it the "Snakes On A Plane" of quirky indie character pieces. Get More »
The last time we saw such an adorably dysfunctional family ensemble on-screen everyone suddenly became an indie movie expert-slash-lover a la "Little Miss Sunshine." With honorable mention to the intriguing "Stuck In Love," this new trailer for "The Way, Way Back" (which conveniently also features Steve Carell in a stolid role) threatens to take possession of that feel-good free-for-all title.

Actor Josh Radnor is mostly known as hopeless romantic Ted Mosby on the hit show, "How I Met Your Mother," though he garnered much more deserved attention for his first feature, "HappyThankYou-MorePlease" (not a typo, I promise), which won the Audience Award for Drama at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. The central theme in "HTYMP" is the hardships of falling in love as an adult. Life would certainly be so much more pleasant if finding "the one" was as easy as movies make it seem to be, no?

Considering how much time Stephen Colbert spends trying to protect democracy from the sinister forces of democracy, you wouldn't think he'd have time to do much else.
Luckily, the self-proclaimed defender of liberty is also good at multi-tasking, which is how The Hollywood Reporter is able to report today that the star of "The Colbert Report" has just signed on to provide one of the voices in the upcoming animated feature "Mr. Peabody & Sherman." Get More »
We love our mothers. We wouldn't be here without them. As the years tick by, we become grateful for all the stuff that Mom bugged us about at the time – eating our vegetables, not sitting too close to the television, wearing warm clothes, paying attention in school, etc.
But sometimes, we wish our moms were a little cooler, and more like the ones we see in movies. Our moms grounded us for calling people names and wouldn't let us go to concerts. Movie moms fought killer robots, let their sons tour with rock bands... Our moms freaked out if we got home late, but movie moms are just glad you survived your fight with an evil wizard or supervillain. Get More »
Remember back in high school when you didn't read Anton Chekhov's "The Seagull" even though it was assigned to you over and over again?
Well, now you can make up for lost time thanks to Christian Camargo's ambitious plans to reboot this literary classic. No, really, you might actually be interested this go-round.
That's because Camargo (best known for his killer role in season one of "Dexter") is gearing up to make his directorial debut (from a script he also wrote) with a retelling of Chekhov's most famous play that puts Katie Holmes front-and-center. If the negotiations go through, Mrs. Tom Cruise Holmes will star alongside other Hollywood heavyweights including William Hurt, Allison Janney, Russell Means, Jean Reno, Mark Rylance and Juliet Rylance.
