…and so it begins. With the first wave of titles for the 2017 Sundance Film Festival arriving today, it means that we’re already looking to the year of movies to come. And it seems there will be a lot to get excited about.
Premiering in the NEXT Section at Park City will be Dustin Guy Defa‘s “Person To Person.” Rounding up an ensemble that includes Abbi Jacobson, Michael Cera, Tavi Gevinson, Isiah Whitlock, Michaela Watkins, Olivia Luccardi, Ben Rosenfield, Buddy Durress, Bene Coopersmith, George Sample III and Philip Baker Hall, the story follows a record collector who hustles for a big score while his heartbroken roommate tries to erase a terrible mistake, a teenager bears witness to her best friend’s new relationship, and a rookie reporter, alongside her demanding supervisor, chases the clues of a murder case involving a life-weary clock shop owner.
It’s just one title of many that will be making their first impression at Sundance, and there’s much more to come.
Sundance runs from January 19-29, 2017.
