And so it goes, with new movies announced for the Sundance Film Festival, comes a batch of new images, so let’s stop the preamble here and jump right in.
Up first is the first look at Nick Jonas (!) in the David Gordon Green co-written “Goat.” Andrew Neel (“King Kelly“) directs the vengeance tale set in a frathouse. Here’s the synopsis: Reeling from a terrifying assault, a 19-year-old boy pledges his brother’s fraternity in an attempt to prove his manhood. What happens there, in the name of “brotherhood,” tests both the boys and their relationship in brutal ways.
Next is Ellen Page in “Tallulah,” directed by Sian Heder, a drama about the relationship that develops between a young woman and a child that’s not her own. Here’s the synopsis: A rootless young woman takes a toddler from a wealthy, negligent mother and passes the baby off as her own in an effort to protect her. This decision connects and transforms the lives of three very different women.
Sundance runs from January 21-31, 2016.
