Newest Indie Gems

If you’ve got some really great Independent Film channels from direct tvyou may catch some of these gems but if not, be sure to seek these newest indies out! They’re a laugh a minute and also touching in that special Indie Movie kind of way
The Promotion – Remember Sean Williams Scott? He was the lovable co-star of Dude Where’s My Car and now he’s making us laugh again in The Promotion. It’s all about corporate greed and sex and well, it’s just what you need on a night in.
Margot at the Wedding – Margot is getting a lot of buzz partly because it’s got a famous director but mostly because it’s a great film. It’s part coming of age, part dark drama and part comedy we think you owe it to yourself to see it to determine if you like it or not.
He’s Just Not That Into You – It’s hard to think of this one as an indie film because it’s got so many big name stars but it’s actually quite good if you’re looking for a quirky romantic comedy. It was released in limited theaters first making it truly ‘indie’.
