Some good news and some bad news about 'Leaves of Grass'...

...the bad news first, being that it won't be coming out on Friday as anticipated (thus presumably canceling my screening on Friday at the Angelika in Manhattan with Edward Norton and Tim Blake Nelson). The good news, however, is that it's been picked up by a new distributor and will be given a much larger release in July. Edward Norton's Twitter page (here) seems to confirm this.
-Thoughts on the new release date for Leaves of Grass?


  1. While I'd have liked to have seen it Friday, I'll gladly wait...

  2. just saw the 2003 acca nominations- the fact that finding nemo and lord of the rings were left off both screenplay voting blocks made it so people forgot to write them in is a shame- they probly would have won their categories

    was this a mistake? seeing as lord of the rings won the best adapted screenplay oscar?

  3. Doesn't have much to do with Leaves of Grass, but the write-ins usually do pretty well, so perhaps it was a lack of votes that ultimately led to its demise, not it having to be written in.

    We're never perfect with the lists, and if we make a big omission, it usually gets enough write-ins for a nod. This just didn't happen to be the case...
