Things shift from color to black-and-white, every object within the frame is designed to within an inch of its life, and occasionally an actor will break through the decorations to make a strong impression: Wright’s implacable authority is mesmerizing, Lea Seydoux as a prison guard/artist’s muse is a delightful enigma and Lois Smith almost steals the show as wealthy art dealer, Upshur Maw Clampette. Mind you, the anthology format means that none of them are on screen for long; the film was shot in the southwestern French town of Angoulême, and you can just imagine the parade of actors enjoying their sojourns in that picturesque burg after working for a day or two on the movie.

The official logline for The Birthday Cake says it takes place during “one fateful evening in the life of Gio (Shiloh Fernandez), the son of a murdered mobster and the nephew of Brooklyn mob boss, Angelo (Val Kilmer).”
While Gio tries to take his mom’s birthday cake to his uncle’s house, he runs into everyone from FBI informants to other mobsters as he tries in vain to avoid the violence that has surrounded him his whole life. Along the way, Gio begins to piece together what really happened to his dad 10 years earlier.
The movie notably stars Lorraine Bracco as Gio’s mom and Vincent Pastore as a member of Kilmer’s mob, two actors who starred in the iconic mob series The Sopranos. According to director Jimmy Giannopoulos, his directorial debut is a look into the modern mob.
“We all grew up loving New York mob movies,” Giannopoulos previously told Variety. “It had been a while since anyone had made one, so we decided to explore the mob today. Where they currently stand. Dealing with gentrification, weakening power, rival gangs, the realities of the Feds knocking them off. But we wanted to combine their traditional world with modern day Brooklyn. A very different world from their glory days. We experience the ride all through the eyes of the son of a gangster who has avoided their world his entire life. But his past comes back to haunt him, and we join him for a night of chaos.”
Screen Media will open The Birthday Cake — also starring Ewan McGregor, William Fichtner, Ashley Benson, Aldis Hodge, Penn Badgley, Luis Guzmán, Jeremy Allen White and Emory Cohen — in theaters and on demand on June 18.
Val Kilmer is no doubt a proud dad as his daughter Mercedes Kilmer joins the family business.
The young actress stars in Paydirt as a newly-sworn District Attorney opposite her dad, a parolee joining up with his old crew to find a bag of stolen cash they buried years before.
While the premise is sure to put the father-daughter duo at odds, PEOPLE has an exclusive scene of the two sharing a sweet moment as Mercedes’ character makes sure her dad will come to her ceremony.
“Okay, look, I would really, really love it if you come tomorrow when they swear me in,” Mercedes, 28, tells Kilmer’s character after they discuss how worried she is about him. “Yes, mom will be there, and he’ll be there. But you’re my dad, you’ll always be my dad no matter how things become.”
“My kid, District Attorney,” he responds proudly.
“Get it from my daddy,” she answers. The iconic actor, 60, recently promoted his new memoir I’m Your Huckleberry by doing some of his first interviews in years. He appeared on Good Morning America to talk about his life, before and after his battle with throat cancer.
“I feel a lot better than I sound, but I feel wonderful,” Kilmer, 60, said. “I was diagnosed with throat cancer, which healed very quickly. This is a tracheotomy to help me breathe because the glands in my throat swelled up as well.”

When asked what he missed most about his old voice, Kilmer’s quick answer showed his wit is still intact.
“That I had one! That I didn’t laugh like a pirate,” he said.
Paydirt will be available in Theaters, on Demand and Digital August 7.
