Opens Friday, Dec 6, 2013 Synopsis: Pregnant Toronto-based performance artist Stephanie (portrayed by a very pregnant Valerie Buhagiar) accidentally sets labor into motion after a rather rambunctious round of lovemaking with her current boyfriend, Ian (Tom Melissis), whose unsure whether or not he's the baby's dad, but is willing to take on the job if he is. In her resultant giddiness, Stephanie proceeds to gather all of her closest friends and family -- and all their problems and neuroses -- for the much-anticipated event. Included in the birthing party are Anita (Debra McGrath), Stephanie's high-strung older sister and ex-friend of Stephanie's midwife, Julia (Angela Gei); Jack (Karl Pruner), Anita's husband and corporate lawyer big shot, who is beginning to have concerns about his marriage; food photographer and official birth documentarian Gary (Colin Mochrie), who was also a lover of Stephanie's and also wishes to be the baby's father; Dani (Barbara Radecki), who dislikes children and is only present because of a drunken oath she made to Stephanie; and Azaan (Derwin Jordan), Stephanie's neighbor and frequent artistic partner. As Julia arrives on the scene and sets up a birthing tub in the middle of Stephanie's expansive loft, each participant does what he or she can to help the expectant mother comfortably give birth while trying to deal with his or her own personal crises. ~ Ryan Shriver, Rovi Cast: Valerie Buhagiar, Angela Gei, Derwin Jordan, Debra McGrath, Tom Melissis Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review

The Giant Mechanical Man

Now Playing Synopsis: A jobless thirtysomething and a talented street performer help one another discover the transformative power of self confidence in this offbeat romantic comedy starring Jenna Fischer and Chris Messina. Written and directed by Lee Kirk, The Giant Mechanical Man opens to find Janice (Fischer) between jobs and stuck in a perpetual state of arrested development while living with her domineering sister. Attempting to gain employment at a zoo, she happens across Tim (Messina), a performance artist whose career as a "living statue" hasn't taken him very far in life. Meanwhile, as Janice succumbs to pressure to start dating a narcissistic self-help guru (Topher Grace), she realizes that Tim is the only person who has ever managed to make her feel good about herself. Malin Ackerman, Bob Odenkirk, and Lucy Punch co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Jenna Fischer, Chris Messina, Malin Akerman, Lucy Punch, Rich Sommer, Bob Odenkirk, Topher Grace Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

Rid of Me

Now Playing Synopsis: A woman whose husband is making her life a living hell decides to return the favor in this dark comedy-drama from writer and director James Westby. Meris (Katie O'Grady) and Mitch (John Keyser) are a recently married couple who are moving from California to Oregon under less than ideal circumstances -- his computer firm went bust and he's taking a job with and old high-school buddy. Meris is awkward and bookish, while Mitch looks like a linebacker and thinks he should have done better (for that matter, Meris thinks she should have done better, too). Mitch's high-school friends make no secret of the fact they don't like Meris, and when, after too much wine at a dinner party, she lets slip a very embarrassing secret about her husband their relationship starts to bottom out. Mitch starts spending time with his high-school girlfriend (Storm Large), and Meris decides to get revenge on Mitch by making a spectacle of herself; after taking a job at a candy shop and making friends with the eccentric Trudy (Orianna Herrman), she begins having affairs with strange men, throws herself head first into the local punk-rock scene, stages curious performances at karaoke bars, and turns into a performance artist who terrorizes strangers in public. Music fans take note: In Rid Of Me, one of Meris' lovers is played by Art Alexakis, leader of the band Everclear, while Mitch's former flame is played by Storm Large, who was a contestant on the rock-themed reality show Rock Star: Supernova. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi Cast: Katie O'Grady, John Keyser, Storm Large, Orianna Herrman, Theresa Russell Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
