Newport Beach Film Festival 2011 Opens with Michael C. Hall Movie

The TCM Film Festival in Hollywood isn't the only game in Southern California this weekend. The Newport Beach Film Festival, which opens Thursday evening and continues through May 5, boasts 350 full-length and short films from 40 countries, as well as numerous parties.

The movies will screen at several theaters including the Regency Lido, Starlight Triangle Square, Big Newport Theater and even Sage Hill High School.

The festivities open with the world premiere of the comedy "East Fifth Bliss", starring Michael C. Hall of "Dexter" fame, as well as Peter Fonda and Lucy Liu. Hall plays a thirtysomething who has an affair with the daughter of a former high school chum. Other narrative highlights include the West Coast premiere of "Lucky," with Colin Hanks (son of Tom); the Slamdance Award winner "Silver Tongues"; the world premiere of the crime drama "Good Day for It," starring Hal Holbrook and Robert Patrick; and "Balls to the Wall," another world premiere starring Jenna Dewan, Christopher McDonald and Antonio Sabato Jr.
