If I Were You Movie Review

If I Were You Movie Review
Title: If I Were You Director: Joan Carr-Wiggin Starring: Marcia Gay Harden, Leanor Watling, Aidan Quinn, Joseph Kell, Michael Therriault, Gary Piquer, Bethany Jillard, Elizabeth Whitmere, Claire Brosseau An odd little duck of a film, writer-director Joan Carr-Wiggin’s “If I Were You” kicks around enjoyably for quite a while in the same sandbox as some of Woody Allen’s mid-career farces, before eventually pivoting and skipping off into less rewarding territory. The story of a woman who accidentally learns of her husband’s infidelity and then enters into a strange friendship and pact with his unwitting mistress, this bouncy but meandering comedy would benefit from an editorial haircut that trims down some of its less inspired subplots. It’s [ Read More ]

Rough Draft: Carr-Wiggin’s Latest Buoyed Exclusively on the Charms of Lead Actress

If one were to look for fresh evidence of the perennial talents of the gifted Marcia Gay Harden they could definitely find proof of it in her lead turn in If I Were You, a new film directed by Canadian writer/director Joan Carr-Wiggin. Harden’s got a number of titles in post-production, but it’s been a minute since we’ve seen her in a really juicy lead role, and she sinks her teeth into this one. How unfortunate then that nothing else about the film even comes close to matching her considerable talents, as she carries the film’s merits entirely upon her shoulders.

Strolling down the bustling streets of Toronto one early evening, Madelyn (Marcia Gay Harden) accidentally stumbles upon her husband Paul (Joseph Kell) sharing a romantic dinner with his mistress, Lucy (Leonara Watling). Shocked,

If I Were You Movie Review
Title: If I Were You Director: Joan Carr-Wiggin Starring: Marcia Gay Harden, Leonor Watling (‘Dark Impulse’), Aidan Quinn and Joseph Kell (TV’s ‘CSI: Miami’) Creating a realistic film focusing on a middle-aged woman who is driven by humor, rage and passion, instead of being a submissive, two dimensional supporting character, can be a difficult task for a filmmaker, particularly on a short schedule and limited budget. But writer-director Joan Carr-Wiggin broke many per-conceived stereotypes of older women in her new independent comedy-drama ‘If I Were You,’ which chronicles how a woman can fix her marriage after she learns of her husband’s unexpected affair. The filmmaker created two strong leading roles [ Read More ]

Dark Wall Anthology Airing Exclusively on Rides.tv; First Episode Now Available

We're not familiar with Rides.tv, but they seem to appreciate horror so we thought we'd pass on the news that Fourth Wall Studios' new Dark Wall anthology is airing there, beginning with Installment #1, "Whispers."
