There are cinematic treasures to be found everywhere, and one movie that struck us last year was first discovered tucked away at the Hamptons International Film Festival. “Sparrows Dance” captivated our own Drew Taylor, who not only called it “deeply affecting, smartly acted and thoroughly charming” in his A-grade review, but named it as his Best Movie That Hasn’t Been Picked Up Yet in his 2012 year-end recap. Well, the film now has a home with Tribeca Film and you can soon check it out in the comfort of your own home.
Below you’ll find the exclusive trailer for “Sparrows Dance,” the latest from writer/director Noah Buschel, and it nicely conveys the unique, small scale story it tells so well. The film centers on a former actress (played by Marin Ireland), who finds herself confined to her apartment, crippled by fear of the outside world. She ekes out a living on her residuals and ordering food by delivery, but an overflowing toilet brings the plumber Wes (Paul Sparks) into her life, and kickstarts a distinctive love story.
Taking home the Feature Film Award at the Austin Film Festival last year, “Sparrows Dance” will be available on VOD starting on August 20th. Watch the trailer and check out the poster below.
