[2 mins. 55 secs.]  In the first segment, a conversation with the director Andrew Fleming (Dick, Hamlet 2). Andrew has a new comedy called Ideal Home which stars Steve Coogan and Paul Rudd. Paul (Rudd) and Erasmus (Coogan) are a bickering couple with an extravagant life. But when Bill, the grandson Erasmus never knew he had, shows up at their dinner party with nowhere else to go, the couple reluctantly decide to take him in. Despite the difficulties of incorporating a child into their lives, Bill grows on them. But when Bill’s father is released from prison and comes to take back his son, the men realize that you don’t fight with your family, you fight for them. Ideal Home opens tomorrow, Friday, June 29th in New York City at the Cinema Village, and on iTunes and on demand.

[24 mins. 6 secs.] Then, recorded from the 2018 Woodstock Film Festival, a conversation with the team behind a new dramatic film called Beauty Mark, including director Harris Doran and actors Auden Thornton and Catherine Curtin (Orange is the New Black). When an impoverished young mother (Thornton) and her toddler are evicted, she is forced to turn to the only one she knows who has any money, the man who abused her as a child. Beauty Mark is being distributed by The Orchard and is available for streaming on iTunes, youtube, Amazon Prime and elsewhere.
