"Why Stop Now?"

The story is about a gifted young pianist (Jessie Eisenberg) who has an important audition at a prestigious East Coast music school. But before he can leave for the audition he has to get his mom (Melissa Leo) into rehab. However, she tests clean and the only way she can get in is if she's high. To this crazy plot, add a couple of dope dealers, a young sister with a hate-spewing hand puppet, and a group of Revolutionary War reenactors and you get a sense of what this off-the-wall film is all about.

"Hector and the search for happiness"

What a wonderful film. I haven't seen a movie that captivated me like this in a long while. The story is about a psychiatrist  who becomes disillusioned with his job. He decides to travel the world and discover what makes people happy. It's at times corny, melodramatic, and funny, but has some amazing cinematography. I really love this film. The two principles Simon Pegg and Rosamund Pike were both amazing. Well worth watching! What a fun movie. Almost 5 stars!
