Take a break from checking for flight prices, packing your bags and figuring out who’s gonna walk your dog: the folks at the Sundance Film Festival have added to the first wave of titles announced yesterday.
For those looking to get to some of the stellar festival entries of the past year, the Spotlight section won’t disappoint:Richard Ayoade’s “The Double,” Jim Jarmusch’s “Only Lovers Left Alive” (which we saw at NYFF), the Tom Hardy starring “Locke” (we already reviewed in Venice) and the acclaimed “Stranger By The Lake”are putting on parkas and heading to Utah.
*****Locke***** / United Kingdom (Director and screenwriter: Steven Knight) — Locke is a feat of dynamic storytelling from Academy Award–nominated writer/director Steven Knight, anchored by Tom Hardy’s fantastic performance. Unfolding in real time, the film is a gripping story of choices, consequences, and a man who risks everything he holds dear to do the right thing. Cast: Tom Hardy, Ruth Wilson, Olivia Colman, Andrew Scott, Tom Holland, Bill Milner. / indiewire
