Technically part of the extended Sundance family when Junebug landed there in 2005, scribe Angus MacLachlan moved from screenwriting to full fledged filmmaker in 2012 when filming commenced on Goodbye to All That. The North Carolina shot flick began filming in October 2012, is loaded with talent behind the camera in Production Designer Chad Keith (Take Shelter) and the producing pair of Park City vets Anne Carey and Mindy Goldberg, while in front of the camera we got a mixed bag featuring Paul Schneider and a slew of women players in Melanie Lynskey, Heather Lawless, Heather Graham, Amy Sedaris, Anna Camp, Ashley Hinshaw and Celia Weston.
Gist: A recently divorced dad named Otto (Paul Schneider) who starts a new life with his daughter.
Production Co./Producers: Archer Gray’s Anne Carey (Adventureland), Epoch Films’ Mindy Goldberg (Gigantic)
Prediction: If there is enough space this year, this could crack the U.S. Dramatic Competition, or fall into the Premieres category.
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
