You may recall seeing Alison Bagnall‘s film, THE DISH AND THE SPOON, at last year’s Maryland Film Festival.
Shot in and around the resort town of Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, THE DISH AND THE SPOON tells the story of the romance that blossoms between Rose (Greta Gerwig), a young woman who has recently discovered that her husband is cheating on her, and a young British man (Olly Alexander), only identified as “Boy,” who is adrift in the U.S. after having crossed the Atlantic to pursue a romance that didn’t pan out. This film was favorably reviewed in yesterday’s The New York Times.
Liza Johnson‘s first feature-length film, RETURN, which we supported in script stage with a MD Filmmakers Fellowship, was also nicely reviewed in The New York Times.
RETURN is about an American reservist, wife and mother (played by Linda Cardellini) returning home from her tour of duty in the Middle East, and also stars, Michael Shannon and John Slattery. It also received good reviews at its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival Director’s Fortnight.
