Text:A handsome young prostitute learns about life and love during a sex-filled odyssey in an apartment building filled with strange inhabitants. “Over the course of one long, rainy night in a labyrinthine apartment building, the hustler will play a long-lost friend, a reminder of spent youth and a dangerous liaison, each successive encounter nudging him toward self-examination. The film’s intellectual aspirations are evident (the dialogue is peppered with Foucault and Shakespeare), but not oppressively so, and the actors perform with an ease that smoothes the story’s episodic structure. Especially notable are Paul Gerrior, as an aging civil-rights warrior, and Nick Frangione, as a lonely trick more interested in connection than sex,” - Jeanette Catsoulis, New York Times. Written and directed by Joseph Graham. Running time: 1 hour 35 minutes.  WITH: Ben Bonenfant (the Hustler), Artem Mishin (John), Michael Carlisi (Gypsy Troubadour), Carlo D’Amore (Leon), Raphael Barker (Jacob), Paul Gerrior (Sam), Nick Frangione (Gary) and John Kiernan (Tommy). The full Out Takes programme will be released on April 24. Out Takes 2011 runs from Thursday 26 May - Queen's Birthday Monday 6 June at Rialto Newmarket in Auckland and Thursday 2 June - Sunday 12 June at the Paramount in Wellington.   Jacqui Stanford - 30th March 2011
