DALLAS, Mar 15, 2009 / FW/ — Shown in Sundance 2008, ‘The Great Buck Howard’ will finally be on a limited release in theaters nationwide beginning March 20th.
Wardrobed by Calvin Klein, Colin Hanks, who plays the lead character, attended the Cinema Society screening of “The Great Buck Howard,” at the Tribeca Grand Hotel in New York City last March 10.
A “young man grows up” movie, “The Great Buck Howard,” revolves around Troy Gable (Colin Hanks), a would-be-writer law school drop-out who becomes an assistant to Buck Howard (John Malkovich), a has-been magician who has been relegated to performing in faded community centers.
In a twist of fate, the coveted spotlight again shines on the great Buck Howard and Buck becomes the unlikeliest of teachers as Troy learns a few tricks he couldn’t possibly have picked up in law school.
A hilarious and heartwarming movie that will just tug at your heart.
