Crazy Eyes played at SXSW this year. It was on my list of movies to see, but it ended up not happening. John Coovert did end up seeing it and liking it, so it is one that I will have to catch when it comes out in theatres. The movie deals with too much alcohol, family complications, money, girls out the wazoo, and just not getting the girl you want most. The film stars Lukas Haas, Madeline Zima, Jake Busey, and Tania Raymonde. Adam Sherman, Dave Reeves, and Rachel Hardisty wrote the screenplay, and Adam Sherman directed Crazy Eyes.
“With too much money and time on his hands, Zach (Lukas Haas) looks like he’s living the dream. There’s a steady stream of beautiful women and the party never ends. He meets a girl he calls “Crazy Eyes” (Madeline Zima), and she’s unlike anyone he’s ever met before. She’s the one woman Zach can’t have, so naturally he wants her. While Zach’s hard-partying lifestyle threatens to go off the rails, family concerns begin to play a major role in Zach’s life. Will the quest for love and the responsibilities of family life help this poor little rich boy become a man?”
Crazy Eyes is in theatres July 6, 2012.
