SXSW 2014 – What’s On Our Radar

South by Southwest (SXSW) 2014 is finally upon us. As with each year a number of feature films and independent programs are vying for attention. Our Screen Invasion team is excited about this season’s lineup.  Here are a few movies that have made our must-see list.

We’ll Never Have Paris

Directors: Jocelyn Towne, Simon Helberg

Cast: Simon Helberg, Maggie Grace, Melanie Lynskey, Alfred Molina, Zachary Quinto, Jason Ritter

Helberg of Big Bang Theory fame and wife Towne share director’s credit.  The movie is described as a clumsy and at once human account of screwing up on a transcontinental level in a noble effort to win back “the one”.



Director: Kat Candler

Cast: Aaron Paul, Juliette Lewis, Josh Wiggins, Deke Garner, Jonny Mars, Annalee Jefferies

Hellion is a story of a family dealing with their own short comings and delinquencies in order to have their youngest member returned to their custody.  Aaron Paul plays emotionally absentee father Hollis to teenage delinquent son Jacob played by Josh Wiggins.


Late Phases

Director:  Adrian Garcia Bogliano

Cast: Nick Damici, Ethan Embry, Lance Guest, Erin Cummings, Rutanya Alda, Tina Louise

Director Bogliano, best known for his “B”segment in in ABC’s of Death, Cold Sweat and I’ll Never Die Alone, tells the story of a secluded retirement community beseeched by deadly attacks from a nearby forrest.  New resident Ambrose, played by Nick Damici, suspects something more sinister than what the residents lead others to believe.

There are some many films we are excited for this year!  Here is a list of others we’ll be fighting the masses to see.

Bad Words
The Internet’s Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz
Infinite Man
Wild Canaries
Starry Eyes
13 Sins
The Great Invisible
Doc of the Dead
