Exclusive: Check out the poster for Bobcat Goldthwait's new film 'God Bless America'
The black comedy premieres Friday night at the Toronto Film Festival
TORONTO - One of the films that I've most enjoyed discovering since moving to HitFix was at the Sundance Film Festival a few years ago, when Bobcat Goldthwait's "World's Greatest Dad" knocked me flat. It's as dark as dark comedy gets, and it features one of the very best Robin Williams performances in recent memory.
Because of that, it's probably accurate to say that there are few films I am more excited for at this year's Toronto festival than Goldthwait's newest movie, "God Bless America." I know very little, and that's the way I'd like to keep it. Right now, I've read a short synopsis, I've seen about three images, and today, we're going to premiere the poster for the movie exclusively here at Motion/Captured.
- Check out everything there is including photos, reviews, videos.
Here's the official synopsis for the picture that was sent over:
Loveless, jobless, possibly terminally ill, Frank (Joel Murray) has had enough of the downward spiral of America. With nothing left to lose, Frank takes his gun and offs the stupidest, cruelest, and most repellent members of society. He finds an unusual accomplice: 16-year old Roxy (Tara Lynne Barr), who shares his sense of rage and disenfranchisement.
Presented Darko Entertainment. A Film By Bobcat Goldthwait.
Directed by Bobcat Goldthwait. Screenplay by Bobcat Goldthwait. Produced by Sean McKittrick, Jeff Culotta and Sara De La Rose. Co-Produced by Jim Goldthwait. Executive Produced by Ted Hamm and Richard Kelly.
Starring Joel Murray and Tara Lynne Barr. Also starring Larry Miller, Sandra Vergara, Geoff Pierson, Tom Kenny, Aris Alvarado, Tony V, Toby Huss.
And now, here's the poster:
Okay. I think I'm starting to get the picture. Is it midnight yet? Bring it on.
