ha!  I wouldn't be surprised if someone did see it at the festival and then posts it on Youtube. 

I'm not sure how much of the film they will show at the festival, but yes!   Even though the entire film won't be shown at this festival, I hope the film gets some buzz from viewers.  Cross fingers!  :fingers crossed




Thanks. lets hope it gets one soon, if it hasn't got one already. :happy face

That gif set is very cute. His eyes!!! He definitely beats the cow! :laughing

This is interesting, and sounds positive.   I hope this means the film is moving forward and hopefully, we will hear something about a distributor being attached to the film.





Madelina posted that she finished ADR in early July. 


officialmadalinaghenea: Just finished ADR .Thank you all !

Here is an explanation of what "ADR" means: 
"An actor watches the image repeatedly while listening to the original production track on headphones as a guide. The actor then re-performs each line to match the wording and lip movements."  
 
Actors must try
"to achieve sync and to recapture the emotional tone of their performance."

I wonder if this was the work-related reason that Darren needed to be back in L.A. at 3:30 today?

Probably. I think Madelina did her ADR work in Italy, so maybe that's where the delay between her and Darren comes from.
I really hope Darren doesn't forget about/get tired of Snapchat any time soon, I feel like he's posting much more stuff that he normally wouldn't on other social media.

That makes sense.

I don't know anything about Snapchat.  Can anyone explain it to me?   I think it's cool that it appears that one  easily may place fun/funny animated images (like "cartoon Darren" and a cartoon pic of a fuel gauge on empty) and decorative messages, on top of actual photos.    It seems like that kind of social media would appeal to Darren's fun and quirky side.


He does seem to be making an effort to use social media more often, which I think in general is a good thing, to connect with fans on a broad level  like that (along with his continuing to be quite remarkable in that compared to  most celebrities, he always has made a huge effort to try to connect with fans he actually meets, by taking photos, signing his autograph, making eye-contact, asking fans how they are doing, even when he is in a rush, something that most celebrities shy away from, generally-speaking).

Smitten! and Darren Criss on the Italian newspaper La Stampa. (01/08/2016)



La Stampa (Italian newspaper) wrote:Smitten! is a romantic love movie, in every respect. It’s a family movie, no naked scenes, this time my father will be able to watch it without any embarassment” _ Madalina Ghenea 

The caption under the picture from the set is:

A funny photo of the cast of the American movie filmed in Trentino and Rome.

The newspaper announced that Smitten! is “coming soon” but it didn’t give any specific arc of time/date.

Hi Jeremy,

Yes, there hasn't been any news about Smitten! for a while.  I googled it and googled Barry Morrow (the director) and didn't find any more updated news.  I hope we hear some news about it early 2017.

From dailydarrennews:


mdunn.nyc: Getting too anxious waiting for the movie Smitten! to come out where I get to play this guy’s assistant!

March 03 2017





Darren's character (Tyler?) is supposed to be a shallow fashion exec, possibly a jerk-type.  I can see Darren, during breaks,  apologizing profusely to this young actor, for being so mean to her when he's in character. :amused

I think this is the first time we saw actor James Remar in the credits for the cast (is that right, guys?).   I recognize James Remar when I looked him up.
