Todd Solondz's WEINER-DOG just released a trailer

From director Todd Solondz (WELCOME TO THE DOLLHOUSE, HAPPINESS), WIENER-DOG is a dark, starkly funny story of a single dog and the many different people she touches over her short lifetime.  Man’s best friend starts out teaching a young boy some contorted life lessons before being taken in by a compassionate vet tech named Dawn Wiener (Greta Gerwig). Dawn reunites with someone from her past and sets off on a road trip. After leaving Dawn, Wiener-Dog encounters a floundering film professor, as well as an embittered elderly woman and her needy granddaughter—all longing for something more.  Solondz’s perversely dark comedy offers an appallingly honest look at the American experience, brought to life by its all-star cast.

Rounding out the cast are: Danny DeVito; Zosia Mamet; Ellen Burstyn, Kieran Culkin, Tracey Letts and Julie Delpy.

WEINER-DOG plays the Nantucket Film Festival Thursday, June 23rd and Saturday, June 25th.

Noah Baumbach's Mistress America, Bryan Buckley's The Bronze Added to Program Line-Up


We're pleased to share that Noah Baumach and Greta Gerwig's latest collaboration Mistress America (pictured) has been added to our line-up as a Spotlight Film, presented by Delta. The screwball comedy stars Lola Kirke (Gone Girl) as a Barnard freshman whose life is shaken up by her soon-to-be stepsister (Gerwig), in a performance that, according to Variety, "confirms Gerwig as one of the great, fearless screen comediennes of her generation."

We've also added another Sundance Opening Night film, The Bronze, which stars The Bing Bang Theory's Melissa Rauch as a foul-mouthed former Olympic gymnast, desperately clinging to the spotlight. Pre-selection tickets are now on sale for pass and package holders so start mapping out your schedules!
