Yep, it’s even more from the Sundance Film Festival with a returning director, a new biopic on a late great, and one of world cinema’s most treasured helmers all with something to prove.
First up, a look via The Film Stage at “Like Crazy” director Drake Doremus‘ reteam with Felicity Jones for “Breathe In,” a drama co-starring Guy Pearce and Amy Ryan. Official synopsis: When a foreign exchange student arrives in a small upstate New York town, she challenges the dynamics of her host family’s relationships and alters their lives forever.
Next, Ashton Kutcher will attempt to channel the late Apple founder Steve Jobs in the auto-correct nightmare “jOBS.” Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine also feature in the picture that will close the fest. Official synopsis: The true story of one of the greatest entrepreneurs in American history, jOBS chronicles the defining 30 years of Steve Jobs’ life. jOBS is a candid, inspiring and personal portrait of the one who saw things differently.
Lastly, Jane Campion‘s massive seven-part, six-hour, TV miniseries “Top Of The Lake” will unspool in its entirety, all led by “Mad Men” star Elisabeth Moss in a very different turn for the actress. Official synopsis: A 12-year-old girl stands chest deep in a frozen lake. She is five months pregnant, and won’t say who the father is. Then she disappears. So begins a haunting mystery that consumes a community.
“Top Of The Lake” will air on the Sundance Channel in 2013, no distribution yet for the others.
