Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 11/26/2009
3 stars out of 4 -- "The film brims with wonderful turns from actors playing actors....The treachery is sweetly done, of course, but it leaves its mark."
Wall Street Journal - 11/27/2009
"[Welles is] played by an excellent English actor, Christian McKay, who bears, or somehow simulates, a facial resemblance to the great man, and nails Welles's expression of pouty, aggrieved amusement."
New York Times - 11/27/2009
"Though specific in its period references -- the musical choices in particular are fresh and precise -- this movie is much more than an exercise in nostalgia for those storied old days..."
Los Angeles Times - 11/25/2009
"[A] frothy backstage pass...The filmmaker truly finds his footing inside the Mercury where the casting, the staging and the catastrophes play out."
USA Today - 11/27/2009
"McKay's performance is a revelation. He nails Welles' imperiousness, charm and vocal cadence..."
Box Office - 11/25/2009
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Efron and the rest of the large ensemble cast are all excellent....McKay's powerful, charismatic performance may be the best yet."
Total Film - 11/30/2009
3 stars out of 5 -- "The period detail rings true, and Linklater catches the backstage atmosphere well....ME AND ORSON WELLES entertains."
Entertainment Weekly - 12/04/2009
"There's one great reason to see the movie, and that's Christian McKay's performance as Welles." -- Grade: B-
Uncut - 11/30/2009
4 stars out of 5 -- "Brit newcomer McKay delivers a classy, career-making performance as Welles. Sensitive, narcissistic, bullying, his Orson is a tour de force..."

Product Description:

Richard Linklater directs this drama about real-life actor/director Orson Welles and his stage production of JULIUS CAESAR. But instead of focusing solely on the auteur, ME AND ORSON WELLES also puts the spotlight on a young man (played by HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL favorite Zac Efron) who is cast in the play. Christian McKay drew raves during the film's festival run for his performance as Welles.
