011 x 50th Monte Carlo TV Festival – Closing Ceremony

In addition to The Waterfront Film Festival in Michigan, Emily’s indie movie Norman will also be screening at this year’s Maui Film Festival in Hawaii. The festival runs from June 16th through the 20th and ‘Norman’ is scheduled to screen on the 18th. If you happen to live in Hawaii or may be visiting there around that time, you can currently purchase tickets at the festival’s official website. They also posted another, slightly different, description of the film:

“This brilliant script explores the agony of male adolescence under the severest of emotional pressures. Norman is a high school kid, a good person, whose private burdens have made him a self-destructive loner. His mother has died, and now his father is succumbing to stomach cancer, a circumstance that is certain to leave him alone in the world. His confused method of dealing with such stress is to punish himself in small ways, one of which is to endure public humiliation by making a grotesque audition for the school’s theater program. Then one impulsive, thoughtless act—a lie—gets way out of hand and makes him the focus of schoolwide attention. It also wins him the affections of a radiantly beautiful classmate. The drama, literally, of his big showdown as he confronts the consequences of his lie interweaves simultaneous with the final days of his father’s life. We watch him reach deep into reservoirs of untold inner strength to face the truth of his own fate. This is a tough story, ultimately triumphant. Adam Goldberg (Saving Private Ryan, Mr. Saturday Night) portrays a prickly, sarcastic, but (as we come to see) deeply insightful high school English teacher.”
