Sue Scott on ABC TV’s “In An Instant” Docudrama

 In An Instant
Sue recently shot an episode of the ABC-TV docudrama, In An Instant and found the experience both fascinating and very intense.  In an Instant takes real life and death events and recreates them through a heart-pounding and highly emotional retelling of the event with original TV footage, compelling interviews with survivors and reenactments.  Sue was cast as a nurse in a maternity ward in Utah who is taken hostage for a harrowing 16 hours in 1991.  Season 2 of In an Instant and the episode she’s in, “Murder in the Maternity Ward,” will air this Spring.

“Me and Earl and the Dying Girl”: A Movie well worth your time.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl PosterMy favorite comedy/drama of the year has arrived this weekend: “Me and Earl And The Dying Girl”. It’s a compilation of themes from a number of successful coming of age/ teen cancer films, like “The Fault of Our Stars”, but none of those had the style and wit of this directorial effort by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, who uses incredibly creative camera work to keep things moving with just the right amount of humor and emotion. The script by Jesse Andrews supplies great opportunities for the cast to shine. Thomas Mann is perfect as the smart, disengaged, film nerd Greg Gaines, who has marginal self-esteem. He learns about the Luekemia diagnosis of a classmate Rachael from his parents, perfectly played by Connie Britten and Nick Offerman, who urge him to give the girl, played by a wonderful Olivia Cooke, support. Part of Greg’s’ efforts to cheer up Rachael involve his friend Earl, a wisecracking childhhod pal from a less advantaged part of town. Together the two boys share a love of films that they draw on to create humorous short films based on reimagined famous film titles, e.g.: “A Sockwork Orange”. Terrific secondary character work by Molly Shannon as Rachael’s mom and Jon Bernthal s Greg’s history teacher/advisor, give the project an extra glow. This was a U.S. Grand Jury Prize: Dramatic and the Audience Award for U.S. Drama at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, and for good reason.
