Among this year’s most-talked about Sundance 2013 movies are the following:
Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman’s Lovelace, starring Amanda Seyfried as Linda Lovelace, a former porn superstar — of the epoch-making Deep Throat — who later became a Born Again Christian. The focal point of Lovelace is the abusive relationship between the actress and her first husband, Chuck Traynor. Needless to say, the abusive one was Traynor, played by perennial movie scumbag Peter Sarsgaard. Also not worth mentioning — but I’ll mention it anyway — is that Amanda Seyfried looks nothing at all like Linda Lovelace. (Check out Linda Lovelace photo.)
The Spectacular Now
James Ponsoldt’s The Spectacular Now, written by (500) Days of Summer‘s Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber, and starring Miles Teller as a seemingly carefree 18-year-old — one with a drinking problem. Also in the cast: Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Shailene Woodley, Kyle Chandler, and Brie Larson.
The Way, Way Back
The Way, Way Back, directed and written by two of The Descendants‘ Oscar-winning co-writers Nat Faxon and Jim Rash (Alexander Payne was the third scribe). The Way, Way Back tells the story of a young man (Liam James) at odds with his family from hell, which includes mother Toni Collette and her asshole boyfriend Steve Carell. Also in the cast: AnnaSophia Robb, Sam Rockwell, Amanda Peet, Allison Janney, and Maya Rudolph, in addition to Faxon and Rash in small roles.
Zal Batmanglij’s The East, featuring Ellen Page, Alexander Skarsgård, and Brit Marling. In The East, Marling plays an FBI agent who infiltrates — and eventually becomes entangled with — a group of eco-terrorists. Screenplay by Batmanglij and leading lady Marling. Also in the cast: Patricia Clarkson, Shiloh Fernandez, Toby Kebbell, and Julia Ormond.
