Dada Films Sees Double with Jenee LaMarque’s The Pretty One

It wasn’t the best of years for the ’13 edition of the Tribeca Film Fest, but there were a couple of mention-worthy items on display and one of those was Jenee LaMarque’s comedy-sketcher. Featuring Zoe Kazan (she’ll next be seen in Brin Hill’s In Your Eyes) doing double duty a la split screen with stand-end, Indiewire reports that Dada films have plucked The Pretty One and are setting it up with a February 7th release in New York and Los Angeles.

Gist: This is described as a heartfelt comedy that explores loss and awakening through Kazan’s duel role as identical twins Laurel and Audrey. After the loss of her sister Audrey, Laurel must decide between continuing her life pretending to be Audrey or revealing herself as a fraud to her neighbor and love interest (Jake Johnson).

Worth Noting: LaMarque’s short film, Spoonful (link) was part of the 2012 Film Festival.

Do We Care?: If you’re looking for whimsical quirky comedy or consider yourself a Kazan fan this one might be for you.
