"Derek Cianfrance's Blue Valentine was originally set up at Thinkfilm and Cianfrance was the DoP on a Sundance entry called Streets of Legend (2003). Douchebag helmer Drake Doremus was in Park City last year for Spooner - not for Sundance, but Slamdance. I know this because I had a convo we his producer during a screening of Bronson. Ryan Piers Williams' The Dry Land probably counts as Maya Releasing's first ever participation at the festival. Josh Radnor's happythankyoumoreplease is a long, one word film title".

Herman Spooner is a used car salesman who still lives at home with his parents. Spooner is fairly set in his unfulfilling routine, but turning 30 marks a hard deadline set by his mom and dad to get a place of his own. To top it off, Spooner's boss is putting on the pressure to bring in some numbers, or face the chopping block. Headed for one of the worst days of his life, Spooner meets the girl of his dreams, Rose. Forgoing all other priorities, Spooner is now working on winning her heart, but on their perfect date, she breaks the news that she is about to leave for the Philippines. How far will Spooner go to show Rose he really knows how to spoon?
Humorous, minimal mushiness and just the right amount of charm keeps you entertained throughout this wonderful story, without falling into predictable indie-cliches, as well as a fantastic performance from lead actor, Matthew Lillard. A great little film that does everything it should. - Saucy Brown, Film Programmer
