Tribeca 2021 Review: ‘Love Spreads’ is a difficult watch about difficult people, with a couple of great performances

Love Spreads

The process of writing music can be a difficult one. I can’t relate, but what I can relate to is writers’ block. It can be maddening, whether you’re staring at a blank sheet of paper for hours or doing everything you can to avoid that staring. This is one of the core components of Love Spreads, a film about a band that heads to a remote studio to write and record their sophomore album.

It’s finally back. It’s finally back. Arrested Development was cancelled after just three seasons on Fox because despite critical acclaim and a dedicated fan base the series never gained enough rating to justify keeping it on the air (or so Fox said, many are dubious of this).

Awesome: Arrested Development Season 4 to Debut 26th May

Arrested Development

Good news everyone! Netflix has announced the debut date for the forthcoming fourth season of Arrested Development. According to Deadline 26th of May is the lucky day.

Arrested Development centers around Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) and his eccentric family comprised of his son George Michael (Michael Cera), his father George Bluth Sr (Jeffrey Tambor), his mother Lucille (Jessica Walter), his brothers George Oscar Bluth II (Will Arnett), Buster Bluth (Tony Hale) and sister Lindsay Funke (Portia de Rossi), and Lindsay’s husband Tobias (David Cross) and their daughter Maeby (Alia Shawkat). Season 4 picks up the family seven years after the original series ended, with each new episode dedicated to a different character’s point of view. Hurwitz, Brian Grazer, Ron Howard, Jim Vallely and Troy Miller executive produce.

I’ve recently started re-watching the original three seasons on Netflix in anticipation of this and I’d actually forgotten how much I love the show. The style of comedy is exactly up my alley and I really hope that the new season reaches the same level of ridiculous hilarity.

Today, following yesterday’s announcement, a new poster showed up on the Arrested Development Facebook page so here’s a look at that too.
