ALCATRAZ’s Sarah Jones Stars in 2ND TAKE On DemandFebruary 15, 2012
On Demand Weekly provides new movie reviews of hot movies on demand and from the POV of watching from the comfort of your home. Today’s review: 2ND TAKE (Gravitas).
An emotionally damaged storage facility owner must come to terms with his troubled romantic past in 2ND TAKE. Tom Everett Scott (THAT THING YOU DO, "southland") plays Peter, a one-hit screenwriter who has decided to step out of the Hollywood spotlight in the wake of a personal tragedy. Spending his nights with prostitutes has rendered him incapable of true love, but when a beautiful, young actress-hopeful, Charlie (Sarah Jones, "Alcatraz" and "Sons of Anarchy") steps in to buy a unit, Peter is compelled to help.
Facing financial troubles, Charlie moves in with Peter. He offers to help her break into the acting business by introducing Charlie to a former agent who unwillingly takes her on as a new client. A true lover of the classics, Peter shares his love of old movies with Charlie hoping to inspire her career on a deeper level. Charlie initially struggles to find her inner passion but with Peter’s help, her craft develops. Yet even as Peter guides Charlie to success, he himself yearns for a life now gone and may never again pursue a creative endeavor.
Fans of Tom Everett Scott will be excited to see him in a new feature but 2ND TAKE lacks originality. The movie maintains its pace but audiences will be left wanting for a pivotal moment.
Look for 2ND TAKE (Gravitas) under your cable system's Movies On Demand secton.
