"Black Snake Moan," Dakota's Controversial Role, and Shelley's "Waitress" Among Star-Filled Lineup at Sundance '07

by | December 1, 2006 | Comments

Obviously you’ll find a few hundred movies to pick through at every Sundance Film Festival, but the ones people want to know about FIRST generally fall under two categories: The "Premiere" picks and the "Spectrum" selections. And next month’s festival looks to have a healthy slate on both!

In the Premiere section we have Samuel L. Jackson and Christina Ricci in Craig Brewer‘s "Black Snake Moan," Catherine Keener and Ellen Page in "An American Crime," Jared Leto and Lindsay Lohan in "Chapter 27" (which is about the guy who killed John Lennon), Gwyneth Paltrow and Penelope Cruz in "The Good Night," Michael Douglas and Evan Rachel Wood in "King of California," Laura Linney and Philip Seymour Hoffman in "The Savages," Kevin Kline in "Trade," and Molly Shannon in Mike White‘s "Year of the Dog."

Moving over to the Spectrums slate, things look even more interesting. Here we have Luc Besson‘s long-awaited "Angel-A," Meryl Streep and Aidan Quinn in "Dark Matter," Steve Buscemi and Michael Pitt in "Delirious," Jason Patric and Samantha Morton in "Expired," Sienna Miller and (yep) Steve Buscemi in "Interview," and "Waitress," which was directed by actress Adrienne Shelly, who was, sadly enough, killed last month by a construction worker. Should certainly make for an interesting screening.

Keep in mind that the Premiere and Spectrum categories are considered "non-competition" films. Interesting titles in the Dramatic Competition arena would be Heather Graham and Victor Rasuk in "Adrift in Manhattan," Parker Posey in "Broken English," Bill Paxton and Zooey Deschanel in "The Good Life," John Cusack in "Grace is Gone," Sam Rockwell and Vera Farmiga in "Joshua," and the "Untitled Dakota Fanning Project," which has been the recipient of much controversy. Yeah, THAT Dakota Fanning movie.
