Knife Tricks Recommends: Martian Child
Sherman Oaks, California
Looking for a family movie to see with the kids and their grandparents? Lucky for you, Martian Child opens Friday.
Martian Child is produced by Friend of the Knife Corey Sienega, whose previous film, Miss Potter, was reviewed on this blog by Franklin The Cat. Like all of Corey's films, Martian Child has an exceptional cast, this time featuring John Cusack, his sister Joan, Amanda Peet, Oliver Platt, Anjelica Huston, Richard Schiff and a surprise appearance by someone you haven't seen since WKRP In Cincinnati. I'm guessing Corey convinced everyone to work for scale plus ten, which is why The Hollywood Reporter recently named her one of Hollywood's 25 most powerful Latinas.
So, if you're looking for a well-crafted family film this weekend, Martian Child is the one to see.
And the original novel is by the guy who wrote "The Trouble With Tribbles." How cool is that?
