This movie is about an actor wanting to make a movie so desperately that he kidnaps people in the public eye and has them act in his bizarre scenes. It’s a true story.

This lie provides a desire in her young son to go with the neighbors when they get deported. As a result the mother must confront her fears and search for her son in hopes she finds him before the inevitable happens.

Peter Graves – On #Flixaddict

If you haven’t heard of the late Peter Graves, then you haven’t watched many movies or much television. The veteran actor began his career in the 1960s television hit “Mission: Impossible”, as super spy, James Phelps. Graves later went on to play both dramatic and hilarious characters in an array of films like “Airplane”, “Number One With a Bullet” and “Addams Family Values”. He also starred in numerous television shows like “7th Heaven”, “Diagnosis Murder”, “The Golden Girls”, and “The Love Boat”.

Later in his career, Peter was the host of several shows, which made him a true household name. He hosted the popular series “Biography” and “Disney’s Wonderful World of Color”. Not only that, he did voice-over work for “American Dad” and the popular early 1990s video game “Leisure Suite Larry”.

Many people who followed the work of Peter Graves did not know that he also enjoyed playing roles in indie films, as well. One of his lesser-known funny roles was that of Dr. Doug Fartin in the 2002 indie comedy “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”, an hilarious portrayal of military life where being gay was seriously frowned upon. His attempts at keeping gays out of the military begin to make him question his own sexuality as his colleagues attempt to turn him “straight”.

“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is one of hundreds of indie films in the extensive library on flixaddict.com/. Instantly stream this film and others with a few clicks of the mouse and begin to watch a hard to find movie right on your computer, mobile device and television.

Only When I Dance – A #Flixaddict review

Director, Beadie Finzi brilliantly films this heart-felt documentary about never giving up on your dreams, no matter what they are. “Only When I Dance” stars Irlan Silva and Isabela Coracy and was nominated as an Official Selection at the Tribeca Film Festival.

In “Only When I Dance”, a feel-good documentary, Irlan and Isabela are two talented teens who live in a turbulent neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro. They are determined to follow their dreams of becoming professional ballet dancers, which takes them out of Rio, where their friends, family and neighbors raise the funds to support their dreams, and takes them to extensive ballet competitions in New York and Switzerland. This heart-warming story of the determination of two young people is the focus and shows what prices must be paid for talent, ambition and success.

This emotional journey from a small community to the big time will have you smiling and your heart will skip when the film comes to an end.
