ANGELIKA’S NOTE

Featuring an all-star cast including Oscar winner Ben Affleck (THE ACCOUNTANT, THE WAY BACK) and Golden Globe nominees Jason Lee (VANILLA SKY, ALMOST FAMOUS) and Joey Lauren Adams (DAZED AND CONFUSED), Director/Writer/Star Kevin Smith's (CLERKS, DOGMA) CHASING AMY tackles thorny subject matter with sensitivity and raw honesty. This Golden Globe nominated, Film Independent Spirit Award winning film follows a comic book artist whose hopes are dashed when he falls for a lesbian colleague. The Los Angeles Times calls it a "work of such fierce intelligence and emotional honesty that it blows away the competition when it comes to contemporary romantic comedy."
