“Beware the Gonzo”, stars Jesse McCartney, Amy Sedaris, Campbell Scott, Zoe Kravitz, Ezra Miller, James Urbaniak, and many adorable others.
It is based on the director’s real life high school experience, and will make anyone, at any age, laugh out loud!!! When the high school newspaper cuts Eddie ‘Gonzo’ Gilman’s article, (Ezra Miller), Gonzo fights back, and creates another paper to give the unknown students and unsung heroes a chance to tell their story, and expose the secrets of high school mystery meat, jock behaviour, and other high school experiences.
Gonzo’s mother, played by Amy Sedaris, reminds Gonzo that “there are a lot of people who work with lepers in India that have a hard time getting into Columbia’s School of Journalism.”
“Do you ever feel lost, weird, ugly, embarrassed about being smart, feel misunderstood, cheated, and alone? Then Gonzo’s newspaper, ‘The Gonzo Files’ is for you.”
“Some of the girls are so spoiled. They are just two faced back stabbers.”
“If I accept your money, then I have to accept your rules.”
“Gonzo is like Nelson Mandela, or John Gotti”.
Q: FOR DIRECTOR: BRYAN GOLUBOFF: This was based on your experience. Which high school did you attend?
A: BRYAN GOLUBOFF: “Bellmore Kennedy”, and my partner was not Zoe Kravitz, but Michael Malmout. It was wonderful to direct this movie.”
Q: Why did you start out the film with the apology?
A: “If I just started the film off with an ordinary high school day, it wouldn’t have been the tone I wanted to set. I wanted to set the tone, to go to a darker place.”
Q: Did your own high school experiences help you make the movie?
A: ZOE KRAVITZ: “I was a giant slut in high school. Just kidding. I went to school in Miami for a year, and I was the weird kid in the corner.”
A: Alex Rolecek/Cafeteria Guy: ” I still work part time as the cafeteria server. Just kidding.”
A: Edward Gelbinovich: ” I was sort of outspoken, but not as proactive as Gonzo.”
