THINKFilm will be the North American distributor of Brad Silberling's character comedy effort of "10 Items or Less."READ MORE
Representing a bold departure for both Academy Award-winner Morgan Freeman and director Brad Silberling, "10 Items or Less" is an intimately-scaled, two-character comedy in which Freeman plays a major movie star whose pickiness with his projects accounts for a lengthy absence from the screen.
While considering a role as a supermarket manager, he decides to do some field research at a small ethnic market on the very outskirts of Los Angeles. Finding himself stranded with no cell phone or transportation, he meets Paz Vega, the feisty cashier who mans the store's express register. When she offers to drive him back to "civilization," this initially mismatched pair discovers common ground, with the star realizing that his love for people is what drew him to acting in the first place, and the cashier gaining the confidence to interview - or as he terms it, to "audition" - for a job that could change her life.
"Rescue Dawn" and other U.S films are set to face their world premieres next month at the 31st annual Toronto International Film Festival.READ MORE
