Franco, My Dear
Now that we have your attention (if not, what are you even doing here?), here goes: Franco stars with Catherine Keener in Maladies, about a young actor in 1960s New York who visits the oceanside home of a friend to process some instability (of the identity and behavioral variety). Franco’s character here inspired his stint on General Hospital -- “James” was a soap star before he broke down.
Multimedia artist Carter created this, his second feature, influenced by films such as Grey Gardens, A Woman Under the Influence, and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? “Maybe we should call the movie People in a House,” he says in the press release.
A mere week after its L.A. opening, Maladies occupies FilmBar, 815 North Second Street, through Thursday, April 3. Showtime Friday, March 28, is 5:45 p.m. Tickets for the 21-and-over screenings are $9 at www.thefilmbarphx.com. Take your chances with 602-595-9187 for more info.
