You would think having worked with Michel Gondry, Todd Solondz, Jonathan Levine, Todd Field, Curtis Hanson, Robert Altman, Alan Rudolph, Paul Schrader and more, there might be a little more love out there for Jane Adams. And yet, the actress always seems severely underrated (she was pretty fantastic on the short-lived, equally underrated HBO series “Hung“) and it looks like she’s drawn on her Hollywood status (or lack of it) for “All The Light In The Sky,” the latest effort from workaholic director Joe Swanberg.
Adams co-wrote the screenplay in which she plays an actress, living in Malibu, dealing with her increasing age and the lack of acting opportunities that come with it (sound familiar?). And when her niece drops by for a visit (played by Sophia Takal), insecurities, fears and much more rise to the surface. And the new trailer below promises an intimate and affably loose film, which looks pretty charming all around, so this is one we’ll be looking to catch up with soon.
Co-starring Kent Osborne, Allison Baar, Simon Barrett, Lindsay Burdge, Larry Fessenden, Lawrence Michael Levine, Susan Traylor and Ti West, “All The Light In The Sky” opens in limited release and on VOD on December 20th.
