Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 15, 2013
On October 22, Grand Entertainment Group, a division of Grand Distribution Group, and an independent multi-platform content and distribution company; will release two laugh out loud comedies "The Calling" and "Love, Sex, and Missed Connections."
Winner of 16 film festival awards, "Love, Sex, and Missed Connections"…”delivers a funny, well-paced film and a clever script offering some fresh twists and turns in the rom-com genre.” – Huffington Post. The award winning comedic romance is one that any single person can relate to. Neal (Kenny Stevenson) who’s been trying to get over a traumatic break up with his ex-girlfriend, finds himself doing what anyone in his situation would do, tricking women on the internet, with a little help from his friends of course. He has great success until he meets Jane (Dorien Davies), who may be just as devious and damaged as he is.
Praised by the Raindance Film Festival as “High on the charm, low on the cheese, “Missed Connections” is everything an indie rom-com should be.” The film directed by Eric Kissack (The Dictator, Cedar Rapids), was written by Kenny Stevenson (Parks and Recreation), and stars Dorien Davies (Bunyan and Babe), Amir Talai (What to Expect When You are Expecting), Candace Brown (Dr. Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat), Jordan Black (3, 2, 1…Frankie Go Boom), Mitch Silpa (Welcome to Me, Bridesmaids), and Scott Beehner (Tomcats, The Last Days of Disco).
"The Calling" from the award winning writer/director Jan Dunn, features a stellar cast led by Oscar® nominees Brenda Blethyn, (Secrets & Lies, Little Voice), Susannah York (They Shoot Horses, Don’t They, Superman), BAFTA winning actress Rita Tushingham (A Taste of Honey, Dr Zhivago), and Emily Beecham (28 Weeks Later).
Joanna (Emily Beecham) is graduating from college when she faces up to a shocking truth she has been avoiding her whole life – she feels the calling to become a Nun. Her best friend is horrified, her boyfriend is pissed off and her mother feels it’s just a phase. When she finally gets to the convent, she butts heads with an outrageous cast of characters, from the politically active Novice Sister Ignatious (Blethyn) to the psychotic Mother Superior (York) and wonders if she’s following the right path after all.
But wait…there’s more!
