TLDW for Playwrights Horizons’ Regretfully, So the Birds Are, the new movie Other People’s Children, and Kid Cudi cameos:
Regretfully, So the Birds Are
Kristine Nielsen was a Christopher Guest away from fame and fortune (she hasn’t done too badly for herself in her own right).
Other People’s Children
A later-in-life sequel to last year’s One Fine Morning. French cinema has cornered the market on movies that focus almost exclusively on adult relationships. Living, talking, thinking, feeling, fucking — without the narrative stakes of Capital-D Drama.
André 3000’s appearance in Showing Up — those flute solos! integral to the vibes! in a vibes movie! — reminded me of the current gold standard for musician cameos: Kid Cudi, actor.
