Director Sean Anders Talks About How Own ‘Instant Family’

INTERVIEW
Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne’s comedy/drama film, Instant Family appears to be an instant hit with both critics and audiences alike. Sure, not everyone is a fan, but I suspect that people don’t actually have kids themselves. Those that do, appreciate all of the chaos and (at times) the corniness that is a part of family life. In the movie, Wahlberg and Byrne play a couple who want to start a family, but sort of feel that they are a bit old to be just starting and find themselves looking into foster care adoption and end up adopting a teen girl and her two younger siblings. Unrealistic you say? Try telling that to Sean Anders who co-wrote the script and directed the movie. He lived it. Well, mostly.

Movie Producers Donate to Wounded Warriors with Your Help

The producers of the upcoming film, Walking with the Enemy, will donated ten cents toward the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) for every Facebook “like” the movie receives before its opening on Friday, April 25. The WWP offers programs and services toward wounded veterans of the military to help “foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history.” Liberty Studios will donate up to $30,000 for this promotion.

The Wounded Warrior Project believes that each person’s recovery process is different and that the “greatest casualty is being forgotten.” They help veterans get settled into their “new normal” with programs designed to aid their minds, bodies, economic empowerment and engagement with a special alumni program.

To help with this promotion, simply go to Walking with the Enemy Facebook page and “like” them.

Sneaking under many people’s radar, Liberty Studios’ Walking with the Enemy was the winner for Best Picture at the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival and was granted the title of “Official Selection” for both the Heartland and Hamptons International Film Festivals of 2013. The film is inspired by a true story about the horrors of World War II during Germany’s invasion of Hungary. Though Jonas Armstrong plays the role of Elek Cohen, the movie is inspired by the true story of Pinchas Tibor Rosenbaum.
