Feeling half-good about Friends With Money, I spoke last week to Sony Classics co-chief Tom Bernard the day after last week’s Friends with Money premiere screening and after-party. We got into how the “dependents” — the studio-funded indie divisons — aren’t making or distributing “indie” films as much as smart, character-drivien middle-budget films for upscale audiences…the kind of movies that the big studios used to churn out but pretty much gave up on sometime in the early to mid ’90s.
