"Me and Orson Welles" caught my attention back in 2009 when Roger Ebert called it "possibly the best movie about the theatre I've ever seen." I had always been curious about Orson Welles. Add in the fact that Richard Linklater directed this when he was known best for contemporary filmmaking like "Before Sunrise," "Dazed and Confused" and "Slacker." And who was this Zac Efron kid anyway? Great energy and style, even better casting, just a terrific little time capsule of what it must have been like to share a theater with a young Welles. It's a high-schooler played by a teen idol up against the enchanting Christian McKay as the best version of Welles you'll see that isn't actually Welles himself.
