Janney and Cranston will play the heads of the Smart family, an itinerant clan grappling with issues of loss and identity as they travel from state to state. The Smarts work in the regional theatre, which I can assure you, as someone with a BFA in the trade, means they must be very poor.
“Everything’s Going to Be Great” is currently filming in Toronto. If it’s a small-scale drama, the movie should wrap up in June, which means it could throw its hat in the awards season ring this fall. A premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival feels all but guaranteed. A limited theatrical release should be produced and if the film does justice to his incredible talent, it will follow the Oscar competition.
