Director Spike Jonze takes a stab at the world of skateboarding in this documentary about one of the sport’s most notorious teams, The Girl Skateboard Company. Jonze’s unique approach is felt through his dynamic footage and camera tricks. Stars like Ty Evans and Cory Weincheque explain the allure behind the sport and what makes this specific team tick. The film also includes a creative invisible skateboard sequence and a cameo by actor Owen Wilson.
After Robert Ford (Casey Affleck, in an Oscar-nominated role) joins the most notorious gang in the West, he grows tired of the charismatic Jesse James (Brad Pitt) and begins to resent his widespread fame. But by hatching a scheme to gun down James, Ford risks forever being branded a coward. Sam Shepard, Sam Rockwell, Mary-Louise Parker and Michael Parks also star in this big-screen adaptation of Ron Hansen’s acclaimed historical fiction novel.
