•• After earning an Oscar nomination as a producer on the gritty breakout film “Precious” Sarah Siegel-Magness has decided to take on something a bit lighter. Actually, a lot lighter. And even more, she’s stepped things up by making her directorial debut on a film penned by Karen McCullah Lutz (“Legally Blonde”), “The House Bunny”) and based on the book “Angel Angel” by April Stevens.
“Crazy Kind Of Love” brings together Virginia Madsen, “Friday Night Lights” thesp Zach Gilford and “True Blood” star Sam Trammell in a tale that follows a mother, in the midst of re-evaluating her life, who leans on her stoner son and his brother for support. But a romance between the younger son and the girl next door could be the key the mother needs to move on. And in this exclusive clip, we see that Madsen’s character is clearly out of her element and adjusting to the changes in her life.
“Crazy Kind Of Love” opens in limited release on May 31st and will be available On Demand as well. Watch exclusive clip from Rom-Com below.
•• “Crazy Kind of Love” theatrical trailer has been released a few days ago as well as two posters from Virginia’s movie. You can watch below the theatrical trailer, enjoy!
Based on April Stevens’ 1994 debut novel, “Angel, Angel” follow a broken family who must cope when Gordie Iris, (played by Anthony LaPaglia) leaves his wife, Augusta (played by Virginia Madsen), for another woman. Their disparate sons, Matthew (played by Zach Gilford) and Henry (played by Graham Rogers), have no idea what to do when their mother refuses to come out of her bedroom for days on end which turns into weeks. When carefree Bette (played by Amanda Crew) enters their lives, her outlook on the world revolutionizes the way each has been viewing this situation. Sam Trammell plays Jeff, an easy-going landscaper, who hires Henry as a day laborer and befriends his distraught mother.
