Me and Orson Welles, starring Zac Efron and Claire Danes, is releasing today, November 25th.

Efron plays a teenage actor who nabs a minor role in a Welles-directed production of Julius Caesar. The movie portrays one fateful week in the young actor’s life and his encounters with Welles and love. The period drama screened at the 2008 Toronto Film Festival,  but found no buyers.  Luckily for Efron and co., and surely all of us, Freestyle Releasing bought the rights and the movie can be seen tomorrow in a few theaters in L.A. and New York City.
