News has been extremely slow lately but here’s a little something. Alexis’ upcoming movie The Brass Teapot has been selected for the Toronto International Film Festival. While Alexis is not set to attend it is great that the movie is being screened.
An impoverished young couple (Juno Temple and Michael Angarano) stumble upon an antique teapot that magically dispenses cash whenever either of them feels pain, inspiring them to ever-greater extremes, as they ascend the ranks of the nouveau riche. Director Ramaa Mosley eschews violence for a more whimsical, Tim Burton–esque treatment in this offbeat, darkly funny satire.
