Dog Years, Burt Reynolds, Ariel Winters

At the Tribeca Film Festival one of the most anticipated films is Dog Years. The movie centers around Vic Edwards (Burt Reynolds) who was one of the biggest movie stars in the world, known of his mustachioed good looks and cocky swagger. With his Hollywood glory a distant memory, the now-octogenarian Vic begins reassessing his life with the passing of his beloved dog. When an invitation to receive a lifetime achievement award from the (fictional) International Nashville Film Festival arrives, Vic accepts the offer. The festival, however, turns out to be very different from the glitz and glamour affair he expected, personified by his foul-mouthed, text-obsessed, punkish escort/driver for the weekend, Lil (Modern Family’s Ariel Winters). Humiliated but motivated to make the most of his time in his home state of Tennessee, Vic and a reluctant Lil take off for Knoxville on a road trip neither will soon forget. Utilizing archival footage from Reynold’s real-life filmography, and featuring sterling lead performances from the rakish icon and Winter, Adam Rifkin’s Dog Years is a funny and ultimately touching cross-generational comedy.

Permission

In Permission Anna (Rebecca Hall) is concerned, she couldn’t be happier with her boyfriend, Will (Dan Stevens). They’re talking about marriage and hoping to close on a new Brooklyn brownstone together. While out at dinner for her birthday, Anna’s brother, Hale (David Joseph Craig), and his partner, Reece (Morgan Spector), innocently point out that she’s never been with anyone other than Will. It doesn’t take long for that seemingly innocuous observation to alter Anna and Will’s future. At the same time, Hale and Reece struggle to take the next major step in their own relationship: starting a family.  Permission tackles universally relatable relationship themes with refreshing honesty
