HEAVENLY ANGLE: July 13 & 20

Heavenly Angle at MIFF

From Oscar winner, On Golden Pond creator and last year’s guest at MIFF, Ernest Thompson, comes a hoot with a heart. Heavenly Angle follows a has-been Hollywood director as he tries to swindle New Englanders into investing in a film he doesn’t plan to make, only to find out that there may be no better place to make a movie with real people. It’s a riotous follow-up to last year’s Thompson-led film, Time and Charges, like that film, made in collaboration with the students in his filmmaking workshops in New Hampshire. But the result here is as slickly funny as anything that’s come down the Hollywood pike in years, a hilarious satire with a very human core and message, embodied by the non-pros who Ernest has guided here, and by Joe Deleault, who composed the infectious score, featuring the legendary Natalie MacMaster, and put another handful of Ernest’s lyrics to music, including “Look Around,” sung by multi-Grammy nominee Joan Osborne.
