Me and Orson Welles, Richard Linklater’s new coming of age feature set in 1937 stars Disney teen throb Zac Efron, star of High School Musical, who stretches himself as an actor playing the young aspiring actor Richard who lands a job with Orson Welles (played expertly by newcomer Christian McKay) and his legendary Mercury Theatre Company. The whirlwind experience of working with the boy genius and appearing in Welles’ soon-to-be groundbreaking production of Julius Caesar as Lucillus sets his life on a new course. In that same week, he also finds romance with older woman Sonja (Claire Danes). The film is "A really satisfying backstage drama, this is an exhilarating tour around a man whose talent was almost as big as his ego. " wrote Kim Newman in Empire Magazine. It's "a movie of great spirit and considerable charm," adds David Denby.
