Little Accidents

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

We had this Sundance Institute’s 2011 June Directors and Screenwriters Labs directing debut pegged for Sundance slot and of course we got bits and pieces of the West Virginia backdrop planted in Park City. Little Accidents is a strong debut, lush cinematography from Rachel Morrison and solid narrative and direction choices from first-timer Sara Colangelo.

Gist: In a small American coal town, this follows the disappearance of JT, a 14 year-old boy in an American coal town which has already seen its share of tragedy after a mining accident. JT’s disappearance draws together three local residents from very different walks of life. Together they struggle to navigate the web of secrets surrounding the boy’s death, unaware of how connected they truly are.

Release Date: This was a Premieres section selection at the Sundance Film Festival. Look for a distribution deal to be put into place for what would be a fall season release.
