Tonight: Green, Thirlby Get Angelic in SoHo

By S.T. VanAirsdale

Snow Angels, surely the most beautiful and hauntingly depressing movie to ever get a showcase at the Apple Store, is front and center tonight in SoHo as indieWIRE hosts director David Gordon Green and actress Olivia Thirlby for a discussion and Q&A. I caught the film at Sundance '07, where it sent me reeling toward the hotel bar and wondering if or when it would ever see the theatrical light of day. (Eric Kohn was there as well, reporting with his ever-astute critical insights from the film's premiere.)

Indeed, this Friday is the big day at last, when Sam Rockwell will break your heart, Kate Beckinsale will make you wonder what she ever saw in the Underworld franchise (beyond her husband's feeble career strides) and Thirlby and Michael Angarano will crystallize the awkward agony of young love. Green is set to make up for the emotional ebb this summer with his stoner comedy Pineapple Express, but don't take Snow Angels -- or its principals' NYC appearance -- for granted. It's one of the best things to come out of Western Pennsylvania (or rather Nova Scotia doubling as Western Pennsylvania) since the '92 Pirates, Barry Bonds' arm notwithstanding.

Check out indieWIRE for more information about tonight's Apple Store event, which starts at 7 p.m.
