Local Color DVD
A New York teenager receives lessons in art and life from an alcoholic Russian impressionist, played by Oscar-nominated German star Armin Mueller-Stahl, in the urban coming-of-age drama "Local Color" (2006). Initially reluctant to return to a career he long ago abandoned, the embittered painter is eventually won over by the enthusiastic young man's interest, inspiring a summer retreat in which they both learn what it means to be a true artist. The budding apprentice also dabbles in his first romance witha comely neighbor, played by the charming Samantha Mathis. Ray Liotta and Charles Durning also star.
