Who's got two thumbs and is headed out to the Tribeca Film Festival in a few days? This girl! I can't wait to live it up in the Big Apple, stalking celebs and checking out the festival's best new films. Want a taste of what I'm hoping to see during my time at Tribeca? This week I'll be bringing you previews of some of the most intriguing-looking films in the lineup.
Some big-name movies are premiering at Tribeca this year, like Baby Mama, Speed Racer and David Mamet's Redbelt. But I'm equally intrigued to catch some of the less-publicized flicks like Tennessee, a road trip movie that stars Mariah Carey (who is everywhere these days!).
The story follows two brothers who hit the road back to their home state (Tennessee, natch) in search of an abusive father who may be a marrow match for one of the brothers who's suffering from leukemia. Along the way, they befriend a diner waitress (Carey) who aspires to be a singer. According to the film description, "The relationship that brews between the three is a heartwarming, contemporary spin on the American road movie."
