2012 Sundance Predictions: Michael Mohan’s Save the Date

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 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.

#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)
