(MENAFN - Arab News) New york: new york's tribeca film festival offers an opportunity for filmmakers and actors both new and veteran to debut their latest offerings. and while many of the films on this year's slate are from up-and-coming talent actress courteney cox is one of the big-name celebs at the festival as she heads behind the camera for her feature-film directorial debut.
cox — whose comedic timing has been a fixture on 'friends' and 'cougar town' — brought her sense of funny to 'just before i go'. the film features seann william scott (american pie) as ted an ordinary guy who decides that he'll end his streak of bad luck by committing suicide. but before he goes he heads back home to check off a few things from his bucket list. among the items? confronting an old bully and his elementary school crush. the quirky film — featuring actors rob riggle garret dillahunt kate walsh and olivia thirlby — might not have been the obvious choice for cox to tackle as her first-time directorial effort but as it turns out that's exactly why she loves it.
the movie will be premiered on thursday.
