#54. Save the Date – Michael Mohan
Following in the footsteps of a Drake Doremus of going from ultra low budget indie to low budget indie, Michael Mohan parlayed his 2010 feature One Too Many Movies (read our interview with Mohan) with a 2011 filler and Sundance accepted short Ex-Sex with what we hope will be a Sundance preem for his latest, Save the Date. With a cast that includes Alison Brie, Lizzy Caplan, Martin Starr, Geoffrey Arend and Mark Webber, this would be a perfect item for the Premieres category – let the pre-fest bidding begin.
Gist: Free spirited Sarah and responsible Beth are two sisters with different philosophies about love and relationships; Sarah is happy with the status quo and doesn’t see any reason to marry her musician boyfriend, Kevin, while Beth is obsessed with planning her upcoming wedding to Andrew, Kevin’s best friend and bandmate. When Sarah and Kevin break up after an ill-timed and ill-advised proposal on Kevin’s part, Beth disapproves of Sarah’s happy rebound relationship with Jonathan, and their sisterly bond is tested almost to the breaking point.
Producers: Jordan Horowitz (The Kids Are All Right) , Michael Huffington (For the Bible Tells Me So), Michael Roiff (Waitress)
