Breaking Glass Pictures will be bringing writer/director Henry Jaglom’s last film release, The M Word, to DVD this coming June 17.
A theatrical break is slated for late April (to increase awareness and critical buzz), but some of the early reviews are already in and they are calling The M Word one of Jaglom’s best films yet … and that’s saying something for a filmmaker who stormed onto the scene in 1971 with A Safe Place and has followed with such delights as New Year’s Day, Eating, Last Summer in the Hamptons and Just 45 Minutes from Broadway.
And once again he teams with Tanna Frederick (he’s directed and she has starred in Hollywood Dreams, Irene in Time, Queen of the Lot, Just 45 Minutes from Broadway and now The M Word) and once again the screen comes alive with her performance.
Moxie Landon (Frederick) works at a Los Angeles TV station on some inane kid’s program, but she has plans for moving into a producing role with programming that she hopes to develop (related to a specific issue relating to women).
Enter corporate hatchet man Charlie Moon (Michael Imperioli — The Sopranos), who is on the prowl for some financial shenanigans, but is also under orders to cut dead weight.
That’s the dynamic — a head-butting dynamic to be sure (where opposites attract). It’s great fun and Jaglom has assembled a terrific supporting cast that includes Eliza Roberts (sans hubby Eric Roberts), Corey Feldman, Frances Fisher, Gregory Harrison and Mary Crosby.
Bonus features include commentary teaming Jaglom and Fredrick (with other unspecified cast members) and outtakes.
