Unlikely Friends ~ “Slipaway”

Unlikely Friends ~ “Slipaway”

Husband and wife, Julia Butler, and Daniel Mentz, presents Slipaway at Prescott Film Festival. The most unlikely duo becomes the best of friends on a self-discovery journey.

Slipaway Film

The film takes two different generations and puts them together at a time when their lives are struggling. They must overcome their differences in age, personality, and more. The journey takes them to becoming best friends while supporting each other’s dreams.

The script develops from Mentz’s visit with Gwen Davis, author. He personally delivers a keyboard he sold to her on Craigslist. The visit became an all day adventure with cookies, tea, and scrapbooks. She told stories about hanging out on location with the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Cary Grant. Butler developed the screenplay after an evening of Mentz regaling the day’s adventures. She is inspired by Davis’ stories and life.

Slipaway Message

Mentz states, “We wanted to bring this message to the foreground, that relationships whether romantic or platonic do not have to be in the same age category. Relationships in different generations are not really discussed.” The movie takes on generational struggles and friendships that assist with making dreams come true.

Fall, actress Elaine Partnow

Fall, actress Elaine Partnow, brings a lot to the role. Mentz says, “She brought the character to life much more than we could ever imagine.” Partnow brings Fall to life with details that are specific to Fall’s her generation. Partnow presents the need to be private and dressing up before leaving the house. Just a few details Partnow presents throughout the film that bring her generation to light.

Adam, actor Jesse Pepe

Adam, actor Jesse Pepe, presents with his own story and struggle from the start. His past is still very present. This takes precedence over Adam and Fall’s individual dreams. Adam was not onboard with Fall’s concept of dreaming in life,

Adam: “It’s a little cheesy, don’t you think?”

Fall: “Cheesy? Well, guess that means my whole life has been… cheesy.”

Mentz and Butler’s first feature film brings an unlikely pair together that takes you on a lifetime journey of self-discovery, laughter, and dreams.

Best Picture Green Book Oscars®

Best Picture Green Book Oscars®

Best Picture

The Best Picture at the 91st Oscars® is Green Book. This story brings forward the fact that we need to sit down and discuss racism in a safe environment.

Green Book Producers

Jim Burke is a producer and actor, known for Green Book (2018), The Descendants(2011) and Election (1999). This film took many puns and knocks during production. Burke responds to this time, “I’ll just say, yes, it was discouraging; but we always went back to the film.  And when we had a bad day, we’d pop in the movie, and we were reminded that we’re all really proud of this film, all of us and all of the over 500 people who helped make it.”

Peter Farrell is a producer and writer, known for Green Book (2018), There’s Something About Mary (1998) and Dumb and Dumber (1994). Farrell talks about his approach to winning, “It’s like if I watch a football game and I need my team to score, I just leave the room, and they will.  If I’m watching them, they won’t.  So I just kind of thought about everything but winning this thing, and it worked.”

Charles B. Wessler is known for his work on There’s Something About Mary (1998), Dumb and Dumber (1994) and It’s Pat: The Movie (1994). Wessler talks about the moment Julia Roberts (he did forget her name) announced Green Book for Best Picture, “I just want to say one thing.  These guys may or may not agree with me, but when I’m forgetting the name of the actress who gave us the award.  I don’t know why.”
Burke states, “Julia Roberts.”
Wessler continues, “Julia Roberts. She opened up thank you.  She opened up the thing, and I’m not kidding, I started to talk to my friend sitting next to me; and she said GREEN BOOK, and I so just to let you know, were we thinking we could win?  I kind of forgot that we could, and, you know.” 

Film Synopsis

The title and subject matter are a reference to “The Negro Motorist Green Book,” also known as “The Negro Travelers’ Green Book.” Published from 1936-1966, the guide helped African-American travelers find lodging, restaurants, and other businesses that would serve them. It eventually covered most of North America, plus Bermuda and the Caribbean. (IMDB)

Film Fun Facts

The real Tony Lip is best known for playing Carmine Lupertazzi on The Sopranos.

The film is dedicated to “Larry the Crow,” a bird that hung around the shooting location. Viggo Mortensen cared for the animal after it was hit by a car.

The film is about “Tony Lip” Viggo Mortensen and Dr. Don Shirley’s relationship and how they changed each other in a time when it was crazy, obviously.

Regina King Supporting Actress

Regina King Supporting Actress

This film is a celebration of love and a reminder of the struggles facing many African American women in this country. Regina King envelopes this struggle and love to win the Oscar® for Best Supporting Actress.

Actress in a Supporting Role

Regina King brings her mother to the Oscars®. She says about her mother being there, “I feel like kind of like one of those full circle moments because so much of the character Sharon Rivers was mapped or inspired by my mother and my grandmother.” She gets teary-eyed as she reflects and says thanks to these women.

She goes on to say, ” James Baldwin birthed this baby and Barry, you nurtured her, you surrounded her with so much love and support, so it’s appropriate for me to be standing here because I’m an example of what it looks like when support and love is poured into someone.” That is truly was. She is wearing an Oscar® winning Oscar De La Renta white gown.

This film is important in the narrative that there remains a divide in this country. We have moved forward and backward throughout the 400 years since the first slave being brought to this country. King states about winning, “But it’s just a reminder of when Hattie McDaniel won.  She didn’t win just because black people voted for her.  She won because she gave an amazing performance.”

King did present a strong woman fighting for her family and her dreams. Kings said about working on the film, “When you have men and women working together, pretty amazing things happen.”

She continues with, “I feel like I’ve had so many women that have paved the way, are paving the way, and I feel like I walk in their light, and I also am creating my own light.”

Film Synopsis

Film Facts

The film’s release date was the novelist James Baldwin’s 94th birthday.

NYU!” This is a long time in coming for Spike Lee. The screenplay writers include David Rabinowitz, Charles Wachtel, and Kevin Willmott.

Lee concludes the acceptance speech saying, “Let’s all be on the right side of history. Make the moral choice between love versus hate. Let’s do the right thing! You know I had to get that in there!”

Depth in Foreign Films ~ Oscars’ Week

Depth in Foreign Films ~ Oscars’ Week

Foreign Film Oscars 4chion lifestyle
Host Academy Governor Mark Johnson and directors

Oscars presents foreign film Foreign Films symposiums. Providing insight into the directors’ Oscar-nominated films.

Foreign Film Theatre

Gathering Saturday to attend the evening Nominees Symposium we found ourselves surrounded by many who attend every year. One family is attending for the 24th year, they did miss the first symposium.

Sitting in the theatre the white screen where the top films in history screened. Today the top foreign film directors surround me. The stories fill the sound of people’s stories and lives. Taking in all the emotions that the directors have developed. It is a true honor.

Mark Johnson the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science 4Chion Lifestyle
Host Academy Governor Mark Johnson during the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Oscar Week: Foreign Language Films 

This is the 60th year for the Foreign Film category; La Strada states, “It took The Academy 27 years to realize that not all great filmmaking is American.” Mark Johnson, Academy governor representing the Producers Branch and the chair of the Foreign Language Film Award Executive Committee, stated, “there is a depth in this category, foreign films, they are becoming more accessible. It is not necessary to make an American film.” This year the Academy nominated 5 films from 85 submitted foreign films. The nominted films are Tanna, Land Of Mine, Tori Erdmann, The Salesman, and A Man Called Ove.

Foreign Language Film Oscars 4Chion Lifestyle
Hannes Holm A Man Called Ove Foreign Language Film Oscars

Foreign Film A Man Called Ove

A Man Called Ove brings the sense of losing a lifelong partner to reality. This may be something many will experience in their lifetime, but not understand until that time. Hannes Holm, The Director, talks about taking a novel to the film he says, “He felt like a thief taking the book story to film. The version is his not the author’s version of the book. Frederick Morheden, the novelist, told him yes!”

The story is of a husband losing his wife. The struggle with disorder and absence of her presence he becomes desperate with the struggle. He turns to enforcing association rules and gives up on life. He develops a most unlikely relationship.

hannes-holm-the-academy-of-film-oscars-4chion-lifestyle-raymond-forchion

Holm’s discussed the film with us after the symposium. He feels that each time the movie is different. He believes that he is only fifty percent of a film. The audience is the other fifty percent. Holms is htrilled to be theatre where some of the world’s greatest films are screened.

This film’s nomination and awards also include: “Nominated – Best Foreign Language Film and Best Achievement for Makeup & Hairstyling (Love Larson & Eva von Bahr), 89th Academy Awards® Winner – Best European Comedy, 29th European Film Awards Winner – Best Actor (Rolf Lassgård), 2016 Seattle International Film Festival Golden Space Needle Award, Winner – Audience Award, Best Actor (Rolf Lassgård), Best Makeup (Love Larson & Eva Von Bahr), 2016 Guldbagge Awards, Winner – Audience Award, 2016 Mill Valley Film Festival & 2016 Traverse City Film Festival Winner – Audience Award for Best Film, 2016 Scottsdale International Film Festival.” This film may be viewed here Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, Microsoft, and ViaPlay.

Bentley Dean and Martin Butler Tanna Oscars Foreign Film 4Chion Lifestyle
Academy Governor Mark Johnson with directors of the Oscar® nominated foreign film “Tanna,” Bentley Dean and Martin Butler 

Foreign Film Tanna

Tanna, a South Pacific island, is a story about the Yakel Tribe. The love interest of Wawa may change the tribe’s world for generations to come. The film is cast by the tribe leaders. Its presentation is in their native language. Martin Butler and Bentley Dean, film directors, state, “This was a collaboration film.” JJ acted as the language and cultural interpreter for the film.
