We sat down with Carla Gugino to talk about her new movie, Every Day, a story about a family’s struggle to survive life’s curve-balls that ultimately bring out the best and worst in us and make us closer.
Ned (Liev Schreiber) is a television writer on a seedy drama whose life is turned upside down when his wife’s (Helen Hunt) estranged father (Brian Dennehy) moves in with their family. Carla plays his sexy, free-spirited co-worker who lives in the moment and doesn’t think too much about the consequences. She’s a playful character who introduces some unexpected excitement into Ned’s life while nearly upending it in the process.
Carla talked to us about what attracted her to the project, what she liked best about her character, and also talked about her upcoming films like Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch, I Melt with You, Mr. Popper’s Penguins. In addition, she shared her thoughts on next season’s Entourage and the Sundance Film Festival. Hit the jump for what she had to say.
Can you talk about how you got involved with this film and what attracted you to the project?
CARLA GUGINO: It was a very typical way in which I got involved in the sense that the script was sent to me. I got a beautiful note from the director which is not typical, which is always very appreciated, and I just opened up the script and started reading it and really loved the story and really loved what it had to say in regards to just the struggles of being an adult and a human being and also loved that this character was such a fun part of the story and such a playful element of it. That, to me, was just very appealing to play.
What was it about your character that really resonated with you and did you draw inspiration from anyone that you know?
The characters in the TV-influenced indie domestic drama Every Day are intrusively colorful, including a husband and dad (Liev Shreiber) with an office job as a scriptwriter for a notoriously raunchy TV series, and a mom (Helen Hunt) who is a dead ringer for an older, tireder Jamie Buchman from Mad About You. There’s also a precociously self-composed, gay teenaged son (Ezra Miller), a mean, ailing, pee-stained grandpa (Brian Dennehy), and a sexy office temptress (Carla Gugino) who lives in enviable, responsibility-free luxury.
The specific troubles of this unhappy family are, on the other hand, colorless — not so much explored as presented and resolved like a shopping list: It’s tough to maintain a loving marriage, it’s tough to handle sexual temptation, it’s tough to be a good parent or a good adult child, etc. As an unintended result, the movie makes it more difficult than it ought to be for its intended audience to empathize with the very real stresses of a middle-aged Sandwich Generation. (The charming, self-aware gay teen, embraced by his family and having fun at his gay prom is, at least, a poster kid for an enlightened adolescent experience.) Dad’s supposedly cool, but actually off-putting showbiz career and work environment (Eddie Izzard plays his boss) is better understood knowing that Every Day is a first-time feature project written and directed by TV’s Nip/Tuck and Scoundrels executive producer Richard Levine.

At first glance, Faster looks like any other action film. There’s a lone hero, a cop, a detective and a love interest. On closer inspection, it is apparent that director George Tillman Jr. has melded works by Quentin Tarantino and every film Jason Statham has ever been in into a decent action movie.
Driver, played by Dwayne Johnson, has just been released from prison and is on the hunt for the men who killed his brother and helped send him to jail. While on his rampage, Driver is pursued by Killer (played by Oliver Jackson-Cohen), who is trying to kill him, and Cop (Billy Bob Thornton) who is trying to arrest him.
Image Entertainment has made public their plans to bring the 2010 film “Every Day” to Blu-ray Disc (roughly 2 months after its limited theatrical run) on March 8th, 2011. The film was written & directed by Richard Levine and stars Liev Schreiber, Helen Hunt, Carla Gugino, Eddie Izzard, Brian Dennehy and Ezra Miller. The tech specs, bonus materials and such have not been announced for this release but stay tuned and we will keep you updated once we know further details. The title is already available for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon where it carries a $26.99 price tag.
This one took me by surprise. Based on its initial promotion, I thought “Faster” was going to be something entirely different than what its final product turns out to be. I think this one is going to be passed on by a lot of people and it’s a shame if it is.
We’re introduced to a man simply called Driver. He’s just been released from a ten-year stretch in prison, and he’s hell-bent on revenge. The Driver leaves prison with no one to meet him and runs to a nearby junkyard. There he collects several things: a super-fast muscle car, a gun, and instructions on where to find a certain man. The Driver quickly goes to the destination, an office building, and, like a primal force of nature, kills his target in cold blood in front of many witnesses. But he’s not done yet…
