America Ferrera, Melonie Diaz And Rory Culkin Headline New Dramas Premiering At The Tribeca Film Festival

Without even seeing a trailer for X/Y, I am already ranking it high on my Tribeca must-watch list. If you're like me and are a fan of America Ferrera and Melonie Diaz, whose careers are on fire right now, then you'll want to keep this film on your radar as well. Here's a little more information on X/Y, which is part of next month's Tribeca Film Festival world narrative competition:

Ryan Piers Williams directs and stars alongside America Ferrera, Amber Tamblyn and Melonie Diaz in a character-driven drama centered around four restless New Yorkers, and their shifting sexual and romantic relationships as they search for a sense of intimacy and self-identity. As Mark, Jen, Sylvia, and Jake navigate through their emotionally-arrested states, X/Y reveals the honest and wanton desire we all have to connect with someone and what is at stake when that connection fades.

Check out are a few more images from the movie:

Another film in that same category at Tribeca that has piqued my interest is GABRIEL, starring Rory Culkin. This is one of the few films on Culkin's resume that features him in the headlining role, which will hopefully allow audiences to see more of his talent (I always thought he was a bit underrated). Here's the synopsis:

Rory Culkin delivers an electrifying performance as Gabriel, a vulnerable and confused teenager longing for stability and happiness. Convinced that reuniting with his old girlfriend will bring his dreams to fruition, Gabriel risks it all in a desperate and increasingly obsessive pursuit. First-time writer-director Lou Howe authentically portrays the heartbreaking reality of a young man battling his inner demons, establishing himself as an extraordinary new filmmaking talent.

The Tribeca Film Festival will take up April 16-27 in New York City.
