Word up, pals in the NYC, Boston and DC areas! My friend Matt Tauber (who wrote and directed "The Architect") also produced "The Great New Wonderful," which is being released June 23. That's the good news. The annoying news, for some of us, is that (for now, at least) it's only being released in those three cities. Billed as "a very funny and surprising movie about healing in post 9/11 New York," the movie features a truly impressive ensemble of actors, including Maggie Gyllenhaal, Stephen Colbert, Olympia Dukakis, Edie Falco and more.
