Palm Beach, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/26/2020 -- Writer, producer, and director David Towner's newest film "Our Scripted Life" makes its way to Amazon Prime Video US and UK. Taking his comedy cues from greats like Monty Python, the Coen brothers, and the Farrelly brothers, with a bait and switch take on love, the one-to-watch filmmaker brings a universal blend of funny to the table. A veritable romp through the unexpected, the indie film stars Abby Wathen, Ryan Karloff, Pat Germano, and Melissia Gary. They bring to life a story about a daytime TV actor named Jake who's in love with his co-star, Anna. Hoping to take her mind off of her engagement to Chad, a fellow soap star, the film takes Jake to a big lie he never dreamed existed. Mix in colorful family members, a combat veteran squirrel, and a local mobster looking for loan repayment for the film's production and complications abound. Especially when Anna, the British aristocratic femme fatale, shows Jake her real truth in a rural Kentucky "holler."

Towner said of the romantic comedy's success, "When we first submitted the film, we won seven awards in the first four festivals. That sweep included two Best Comedy Feature awards, Best Feature Film, Best Lead Actress, Best Actor, Best Musical Score, and Best Supporting Actor. We were beside ourselves when we realized that was just the beginning; the reception since then has been phenomenal as well. Comedies usually get snubbed by festivals so, I'm extremely grateful."

Premiered on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Our Scripted Life has received 24 awards and is nominated for 12 more. Among numerous others, accolades have come from Riverside International Film Festival, Golden State International Film Festival, Italian Film Days, and the London International Cinema Festival.

One viewer raved, "A well-thought-out comedy!! Does a complete 180 in the middle, which is perhaps, funnier than the first part. An avenue one would never see coming."

Riot police storm Hong Kong malls to nip more protests

Jul 15, 2020

HONG KONG — Riot police stormed several malls in Hong Kong on Sunday in a move to thwart more pro-democracy protests, as the city's leader heads to Beijing for talks on deepening economic integration between the semi-autonomous Chinese territory and mainland China. There were calls online urging protesters to gather in seven locations to sustain a push for political reform following a chaotic day of protests and clashes with police on Saturday, with the anti-government movement showing no signs of letting up after nearly five months.

China says US has 'weaponized' visas to target exchanges

Jul 15, 2020

BEIJING — China on Wednesday accused the U.S. of having "weaponized" the issuance of visas following the reported inability of a top Chinese space program official to obtain permission to travel to a key conference in Washington. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters that the head of the Chinese delegation to the International Astronautical Congress wasn't able to obtain a visa following an Oct. 12 interview, making it difficult for Chinese representatives to attend important events at the meeting. Reports said the vice chairman of the China National Space Administration, Wu Yanhua, had planned to attend the congress. Hua...

Hong Kong police say homemade bomb targeted officers

Jul 15, 2020

HONG KONG — A homemade, remote-controlled bomb intended to "kill or to harm" riot control officers was detonated as they deployed against renewed violence in Hong Kong over the weekend, police said Monday, in a further escalation of destructive street battles gripping the business hub. The "loud thud" Sunday night close to riot officers who had been clearing away a protester-built road block marked the first known use of an explosive device during protests that started in June over a contested extradition bill and have snowballed into an anti-government, anti-police and anti-China movement. "It exploded less than 2 meters (yards)...

Asian stocks gain after US, China announce truce on tariffs

Jul 15, 2020

BEIJING — Asian stock markets have risen after Washington and Beijing announced a truce on tariff hikes in a trade war. Benchmarks in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Seoul advanced. Japanese markets were closed for a holiday. President Donald Trump agreed Friday to put off planned tariff hikes this week on Chinese goods in a fight over Beijing's trade surplus and technology plans. In exchange, he said China would buy American farm goods. But the two sides reported no progress on basic disputes that sparked the 15-month-old fight that threatens global economic growth. Friday's truce "has simply temporarily halted the escalation...

China criticizes Apple for app that tracks Hong Kong police

Jul 15, 2020

HONG KONG — Apple became the latest company targeted for Chinese pressure over protests in Hong Kong after the ruling Communist Party's main newspaper criticized the tech giant Wednesday for a smartphone app that allows activists to report police movements. HKmap.live, designed by an outside supplier and available on Apple Inc.'s online store, "facilitates illegal behavior," the People's Daily said in a commentary. "Is Apple guiding Hong Kong thugs?" the newspaper said. Beijing has pressed companies including Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific Airways to take the government's side against the protests, which are in their fourth month. Apple didn't immediately respond...
