Here is some information on Kristens new film…
The local butcher, Easy (Bruce Dern), and his docile-faced son Beagle (Aaron Stanford), seem to be getting on just fine in “The Cake Eaters,” a slow-paced drama set in a time-warped village in upstate New York. All’s well, that is, until the older son, Guy (Jayce Bartok, who also wrote the screenplay), comes home for the first time in three years, a month late for his mother’s funeral. The three wander the house in her absence, trying to act as men should: They talk to their beers instead of each other and overdose on cholesterol-drenched breakfasts. They pursue women with varying degrees of success.

THE CAKE EATERS Directed by: Mary StuartMasterson
Written by: Jayce Bartok
Starring: Kristen Stewart, Bruce Dern, Aaron Stanford
At: Somerville Theatre
Running time: 90 minutes
The butcher’s long-time paramour, Marg (Elizabeth Ashley), brings zany grit to the often-plodding plot; Ashley and Dern share sparks. But the most sustained flickers of life come from Marg’s granddaughter, Georgia, played by Kristen Stewart two years before her star burst with “Twilight,” no doubt the impetus for the film’s current limited release to the big screen. (“The Cake Eaters” was shot in 2006 and made the round of festivals starting in 2007.)
A romance between Beagle and Georgia further entwines the two families, and the tangle of all the relationships is the heart of the story. Georgia seeks asylum from the terminal neurological disease she suffers – and from her hyper-protective mother (Talia Balsam) – by deciding it’s time to have sex. She discusses this frankly with her bourbon-swilling grandmother as they motor through town in a classic white convertible complete with fuzzy dice. Yet the quirky tenderness of these moments only magnifies the awkwardness of her mother’s relentless demand to photograph Georgia half-clothed to apply for a Guggenheim. There are only so many story threads an ensemble cast can hold.
In her first film as a feature director, Mary Stuart Masterson brings a sympathetic eye to the lives of her characters. As for Stewart, it’s clear her beginnings have come to an end. There’s a reason she’s booked for eternity.

Looks like the much-anticipated Box Office showdown between Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart has been called off.
According to a source close to Pattinson’s Little Ashes, the movie’s release has been pushed from March 27 to May 8. The March date was significant as it marked the opening of Stewart’s movie Adventureland.
The new May release means the two stars—who famously played lovers in Twilight—will no longer go head-to-head on their respective opening weekend.
“It was going to be fun, the little competition with the two films,” says the Ashes source. “But this gives everyone time to really give Ashes the attention it needs.”
The timing issue came with the success of Departures, an Oscar-nominated film being released by Regent Releasing, the same company handling Little Ashes.
“They want to give Departures the attention and budget it deserves,” says the source. “And then move onto Ashes.”
Pattinson plays the artist Salvador Dali in Ashes.

Robert Pattinson swaps his fangs for a paintbrush in his latest movie role – the British actor plays Spanish artist Salvador Dalí in upcoming film Little Ashes.
In the film, set in 1922 and described by industry publication Variety as an “arty Bohemian romp,” the hunky 22-year-old portrays the Spanish surrealist painter (1904-1989) Dalí as a young man – in love with the poet Federico GarcÍa Lorca, played by Javier Beltran. The two meet at university and Lorca, according to the movie’s production notes, is attracted to Dalí’s “bizarre blend of shyness and rampant exhibitionism.”
Little Ashes, which is set against the backdrop of fascist Spain, hits theaters in March.
Pattinson (pictured above as Dalí) is best known for his role as vampire Edward Cullen in Twilight. He has also played Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

Kristen Stewart has going on about her excitement and preparation for her starring role in “The Runaways”. Talking to MTV at Sundance, the 18-year-old actress enthusiastically bursts out, “I’m, like, vibrating. I’m just so excited about that movie,” adding, “I’m really, exceedingly, more excited than normal.”
Set to portray rock musician Joan Jett in the rock ‘n’ roll biopic of Jett’s 1970s all-girl band, the Bella Swan of “Twilight” further reveals that she’s been working hard on picking up old guitar riffs for the role. She, in addition, gushes that she has got the chance to hang out with the “I Love Rock N’ Roll” hit maker, saying “Yeah, I spent New Year’s with her. I spent, like hours, just talking to her. It’s been great.”
“The Runaways” will revolve around a ’70s girl band of the same name formed by Joan Jett and Cherie Currie. The movie will follow the teenage band as they experience meteoric rise, and chronicles their dissolution and disillusionment. With Jett serving as the film’s executive producer and Floria Sigismondi being the director, it is expected to begin filming near the end of 2009.
Consisting of guitarists Jett and Lita Ford, drummer Sandy West, singer-keyboardist Cherie Currie and bassist Jackie Fox, the band, The Runaways, itself was the first successful all-girl hard rock band. After being brought together in mid-1970 impresario Kim Fowley, the girls became serious and influential musicians with songs like “Cherry Bomb”, but fell apart over management and money issues after four years together.
