A day at the office takes place in a multi-level tree house and people fly to work like Superman. The climatic reveal from Planet of the Apes features SpongeBob SquarePants instead of the Statue of Liberty.

Microreview: Grand Piano
Former hobbit and occasional creepy dude in the side plot Elijah Wood stars as Tom Selznick, a reluctant piano prodigy and even more reluctant hostage, in Eugenio Mira’s newest film Grand Piano.
The entire film takes place on the night of Selznick’s comeback piano recital. Selznick has taken a five year hiatus from the stage after a performance wherein he experienced crippling stage fright and could not finish playing what is aptly nicknamed “the unplayable piece”. Selznick arrives at the concert hall a sweaty, anxious mess, but his wife assures him he will be okay. He’s a talented musician who’s performed on countless occasions. What could go wrong?
Well, a lot. Selznick opens his sheet music to reveal a simple message: play the piece perfectly, or die. This is where the real fun begins in this musical hostage romp. Elijah Wood frantically plays piano while trying to deal with a crazy sniper (who conveniently provides his hostage with a Bluetooth headset) while trying also trying to understand why his hostage-taker is so hellbent on the piece being played perfectly. The back and forth between Elijah Wood and his captor is frantic, suspenseful, and reminiscent of every stress dream ever dreamt.
Microreviews is an ongoing series on the NCFF Tumblr, written by friends of the festival about what they’ve been watching. This one was written by friend of the fest Katie Kerr. If you’d like to write one, get in touch.

Hey look I wrote a thing!
