Four Late Entry Films Added To Sundance Slate

Written by: FFT Webmaster | January 18th, 2012

It is not unusual for late entry films to be added to the Sundance slate. This is no reflection of their quality, with such indie gems as Miranda July’s THE FUTURE and Lisa Cholodenko’s THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT also added after the initial announcements were made. This year, four films have just made the bus. The Festival is hosting the world premiere of PREDISPOSED, an American drama about a piano prodigy who enlists the help of a drug dealer to help him get into a prestigious music program. The film, co-directed and written by Philip Dorling and Ron Nyswaner has a stellar cast, including Jesse Eisenberg, Melissa Leo, Tracy Morgan and Sarah Ramos. Other titles include OSLO, AUGUST 31, an intimate story of a drug addict’s attempt to go sober by Norwegian director Joachim Trier; THIS MUST BE THE PLACE by Italian director Paolo Sorrentino, with Sean Penn starring as a bored, retired rock star who sets out to find his father’s Nazi war criminal executioner; and JOHN DIES AT THE END, the world premiere of a druggy sci-fi film about a drug that allows user to drift across time and dimensions, written and director by Don Coscarelli.
