I'll Come Running
Rising star Melonie Diaz (Raising Victor Vargas, Lords Of Dogtown) shines in this bold and fresh film from co-writer and director Spencer Parsons. Diaz plays a waitress in Austin Texas who falls for the gangly, self-satisfied charms of a Danish tourist (Jon Lange) who became famous as a child star in his homeland and has the complacent air of someone whose best days are behind him and knows it. Their sweaty, passionate fling seems perfect for both of them until an unexpected event sends Diaz off to Denmark. Now it's the waitress who is the fish out of water struggling to survive in a cross-cultural mash-up that's both funny, confusing and surprisingly moving. Parsons breakthrough feature is the best showcase yet for "the very appealing" Diaz (TV's Nip/Tuck) who "holds the film together" according to the Hollywood Reporter and demonstrates "toughness as well as curiosity about all the heartbreaking surprises that life has in store for us."
