As it turns out Marlon is of little help, botching Sonny’s suicide attempts at every turn. Nothing works – not hanging, not jumping from a tower, not bludgeoning by an adjustable hospital bed, not even holding his breath until he dies. During a drowning attempt, Sonny has a change of heart. How could he possibly leave his daughter, Julie (Kristy McNichol) orphaned. Marlon, unaware of Sonny’s sudden zest for life, is a man on a mission who’ll stop at nothing to make sure that his friend’s wish is fulfilled in The End.

Olive Films October Releases

Quote: From the accomplished theater director James Lapine ( Into The Woods) comes Impromptu, his directorial film debut, and one that could very well be called When Chopin Met Sand. A delightful, witty and beautifully crafted film,Impromptu brings together a number of historical figures of the arts & letters variety who trade bon mots at a breakneck pace in this effervescent romp. The ambitious, social climbing Duchess d’Antan’s (Emma Thompson), salon for the “artists of the moment,” brings face-to-face the wildly unconventional and recently divorced Baroness Dupin AKA author George Sand (Judy Davis) and the object of her unbridled affection -- the talented, introspective and highly sensitive composer Frederic Chopin (Hugh Grant). These are but two shining stars in a galaxy of 19th Century glitterati that includes composer Franz Liszt (Julian Sands), French poet, dramatist and author Alfred de Musset (Mandy Patinkin) and painter Eugene Delacroix (Ralph Brown).

Quote: From director Carl Reiner ( The Jerk) and screenwriter Steve Gordon ( Arthur) comes The One and Only, a tale of marital bliss and off-kilter relationships told with wry wit and a bit of borscht belt humor. This bittersweet comedy stars Henry Winkler, Kim Darby, Gene Saks, and Hervé Villechaize. From their unconventional courtship and whirlwind college romance, we follow the lives of Andy Schmidt (Winkler) and Mary Crawford (Darby) into adulthood, careers and the beckoning lights of Broadway where Andy is convinced he'll make it big on the stage. However with acting jobs in short supply the unconventional Andy will become conventional when he learns that he’ll be a father. With Andy’s dreams all but dashed, triumph will come not on the boards, but in the wrestling ring. Taking a page from the flamboyant wrestler Gorgeous George, Andy creates a persona - The Lover - that will bring him great acclaim. When his outsized persona overshadows his personal life it will strain his fragile marriage, friendships and the already tense relationship with his resistant in-laws.

With nods to both Alfred Hitchcock ( Vertigo) and Henri-Georges Clouzot ( Diabolique), the film builds on the suspense from scene to tension-filled scene.
