Academy Nicholl Fellow, screenwriter, and writer of the upcoming film, Best Sellers, starring Michael Caine and Aubrey Plaza.
I typically watch one extraordinary film a night, but some simply align more with my sensibilities than others. A New Leaf is one of those films. I can’t wipe the smile from my face when thinking about it. Elaine May is a goddamn national treasure. She wrote, directed, and starred in this diabolically funny Rom-com, knocking all three categories out of the park. Walter Matthau shines as the ne'er-do-anything who plots her demise. I ordered the Blu-ray the second it ended. It demanded that I possess it.
