The investigation forces Charlie to do the one thing he vowed he would never do again: trust a dame. Charlie’s search for killers and the diamond sends him crisscrossing 1940s Los Angeles – grilling a lithe heiress, dodging menacing hoodlums, sparring with befuddled LAPD detectives, and falling for the most ‘fatale’ femme-fatale he’s ever loved: Mona Livingston. Kill Me, Deadly has the look and feel of the classic noirs of the 1940’s,with a comical spin on the archetypal characters that pack this lush world of murder and intrigue. Director Darrett Sanders and more present the film.

Starring Alan Rickman, Mary Steenburgen, and Bryan Greenberg along with Eliza Dushku, Danny DeVito, Bill Pullman, and more, Nobel Son is a 2007 American black comedy about a dysfunctional family dealing with the kidnapping of their son for ransom following the father’s winning of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Roger Ebert said of the film, “Nobel Son is a mercilessly convoluted version of a Twister, that genre in which the plot whacks us as if it’s taking batting practice. I will not hint at anything that happens. I will simply observe that it’s all entertaining.” Presented by Producer Michael Ravine.
