(SPOILER) "The Air I Breathe" and "Suburban Girl" are part of the Tribeca Film Festival. Both garner high regard from the blog itself and press releases seem to confirm that both films will premiere at the festival which starts on April 25 and runs to May 6.

The Air I Breathe, directed by Jieho Lee, written by Jieho Lee and Bob DeRosa. (U.S.A.) World Premiere. A businessman (Forest Whitaker) bets his life on a horse race, a gangster (Brendan Fraser) sees the future, a pop star (Sarah Michelle Gellar) falls prey to a crime boss (Andy Garcia), and a doctor (Kevin Bacon) must save the love of his life. Based on a Chinese proverb, these four overlapping stories dramatize the four emotional cornerstones of life: happiness, pleasure, sorrow and love.

Suburban Girl, directed and written by Marc Klein. (U.S.A) World Premiere.
Determined to rise through Manhattan's cutthroat literary ranks on her own, an ambitious young book editor (Sarah Michelle Gellar) hesitates to become involved with a high-powered publishing playboy (Alec Baldwin) many years her senior. Personal and professional lines slowly blur in this witty adaptation of Michelle Bank's bestselling book, The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing.

ETA: I must thank Dirrty and Anne 5_5 from SMGfan, I certainly didnt find this myself.

I'm actually quite interested in The Air I Beathe. Suburban Girl has the potential to be great depending purely on the writing. If the past has taught me anything though, I'm unfortunately expecting the worst.
It would be nice to see SMG in a really good movie, or two. *Crosses fingers*. Some really good actors there.
It's great to see 2 of Sarah's movies at the festival. I'm looking forward to The Air I Breathe the most. That cast is wonderful. And I hope Sarah and Alec have good chemistry in Suburban Girl.
These two are her best shots at moving up a little in the acting game and getting better films in the future.. She's got top actors to play off, and if she can earn good notices, she'll be on her way. Still, there are first-time directors for both films, so a lot could go wrong. I'm crossing fingers like mad, too.
