“Hutcherson imbues the character with a believability that transcends the script’s limitations. The actor’s supporting gig in the “Hunger Game” movies hasn’t provided him with sufficient material to show his range, but “Escobar” gives him with another shot, following noteworthy turns in “The Kids Are Alright” and “Detention.” His roles in those movies bear little resemblance to the wide-eyed survivor on display here.”
I was out late last night, and what with the time difference I forgot to submit in yesterday’s prompt, “green”, so I thought I’d post it here.

Because it’s only a four-day festival with a refreshingly eclectic lineup that’s discerningly programmed, Telluride typically sports a far higher batting average of very strong films than do the giant smorgasbord-type events; one expects Telluride selections to be good, or at least worth seeing. Therefore, one is tempted to suspect that the films that will make their initial bows in the Colorado mountains at least have something special going for them. In addition to Birdman and Ramin Bahrani’s 99 Homes making their U.S. debuts fresh from Venice, the high-profile premieres at Telluride this year will be: Wild, starring Reese Witherspoon in Jean-Marc Vallee’s first outing since Dallas Buyers Club, Norwegian director Morten Tyldum’s WWII code-breaking story The Imitation Game with Benedict Cumberbatch, Regis Wargnier’s The Gate, Sophie Barthes’ Madame Bovary starring Mia Wasikowska and, in a whispered surprise, Italian actor Andrea Di Stefano’s first feature, Escobar: Paradise Lost, a crime drama starring Josh Hutcherson and Benicio del Toro.
