'Liberal Arts' Roundup and a little bit on 'Paperboy' and 'TLO'

IFC Films bought the rights for Liberal Arts at Sundance. According to ScreenDaily, "IFC plans a theatrical release in the top 20 markets later this year." beeonkaa was actually at the Sundance Film Festival USA screening at the Kabuki in San Francisco and I asked her to ask Josh Radnor about a possible concurrent VOD release which has become typical of IFC's releases. She said he said yes in response so that's awesome for people outside the 20 markets. Radnor also ~maybe~ said it will be released in March. That seems fast, so we'll see. beeonkaa's impressions of Zac/Nat:



She also said that his mannerisms were ace and that Josh mentioned in the Q&A that there was a very specific way to play Nat and he didn't want it to be ironic in any way. That fits a lot with why I've kind of felt a very Hansel vibe from the dialogue. And I think it also kind of aligns with what Josh said in one of the videos about the sense of genuine that he got from meeting Zac and why he would fit the character.

ETA: From Deadline: Revolver Entertainment and Picturehouse Entertainment have jointly acquired all UK rights to Josh Radnor’s Liberal Arts and Bart Layton’s feature documentary The Imposter.

Anyhow, here is a round up of a few more reviews. I know of at least two or three more we're still waiting on, but I've postponed this long enough.

Also we're starting to get promo info for The Lorax, like he'll be on Ellen on Feb. 21 with Taylor Swift, so I'm gonna start getting together the promo pages for that and even for TLO. Hopefully that'll happen tomorrow.
