Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #90. Angelina Nikonova’s Welcome Home

Welcome Home

Director: Angelina Nikonova
Writer(s): Angelina Nikonova, Olga Dykhovichnaya, Karren Karagulian
Producer: Daniela Albin
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Kika Magalhaes, Paulina Simkin, Austin Kennedy

Despite not being noticed by distributors, helmer Angelina Nikonova and for that matter, actress-writer Olga Dykhovichnaya rocked cinephilia foundations with the heavily traveled Twilight Portrait. For her sophomore feature, Nikonova creatively pairs off with Dykhovichnaya again, but this time is working with what could be considered some comedy noir elements on the not so fun joys of immigration and working in the English-language instead of Russian.

Gist: et in NYC, this is about a group of immigrants who have become hostage to their life choices.

Release Date: Having filmed midway last year, this should be ready and searching for a festival fit.
