May 2015 Indie Movies


Welcome to Me

Release Date: May 1, 2015

Cast: Kristen Wiig, Wes Bentley, James Marsden, Tim Robbins, Joan Cusack, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Linda Cardellini

Director: Shira Piven

A woman with borderline personality disorder wins the lottery and decides to buy herself a talk show.

My Take: I think only Kristen Wiig can make this watchable. I want to see the awkwardness of it all.


Far From the Madding Crowd

Release Date: May 1, 2015

Cast: Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Tom Sturridge, Michael Sheen

Director: David Nicholls

In the late 1800s, a young woman is left her uncle’s farm, which she successfully runs while three very different men try to woo her into marriage that she isn’t completely sure she needs or wants.

My Take: I really like Carey Mulligan and I like the idea of the story where the woman runs her own life and chooses to get married if she wants, not because it is what is expected of her.

The man behind Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch. He’s the last of the original puppeteers at Sesame Street, still working at 80.

My Take: So many feels.

My Take: It might be fascinating to fashionistas, but not sure if it has enough interest for me.

Cast: Jennifer Connelly, Cillian Murphy, Melanie Laurent, Oona Chaplin

Director: Claudia Llosa

My Take: It sounds so pretentious and boring.
