Tribeca Film Festival Move #5 Alchemy
James Barbour and Thomas Cavanagh
“Can an university computer scientist (Tom Cavanagh, best known from Urinetown and TV's Ed) make a woman fall in love with his interactive computer before she succumbs to a well-known professor? His job depends on it in this romantic comedy. Also starring Sarah Chalke, Illeana Douglas, and Celeste Holm.”
That is basic plot of movie I watched today called “Alchemy”, lighthearted comedy. I liked the fact that entire movie was shot in New York. Some part was even shot at Pace University, where I saw another movie just yesterday.
I like the story and acting was fine. Sarah Chalke, who play Samantha from TV show Scrub, was very fine. Somehow I felt that movie was little too sitcom-ish. Overall, I did like the movie but it wasn’t the best.
Director Evan Oppenheimer and actor/actress Thomas Cavanagh, James Barbour, Sarah Chalke, and Nadia Dajani was there for Q&A session after the movie.
Oh and for the record, yes, it is my stinky digital camera. It' old. also lighting in movie theater is not so good.
