Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #99. Josh Mond’s James White

James White

Director: Josh Mond
Writer: Josh Mond
Producers: Borderline Films’ Antonio Campos, Sean Durkin and Josh Mond
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Christopher Abbott, David Call, Cynthia Nixon, Ron Livingston, Scott (Kid Cudi) Mescudi, Mackenzie Leigh

Continually proving that three heads are better than one, what we’ll soon learn with Josh Mond’s feature debut is that the Borderline trio might be like-minded in philosophy, but naturally, are completely different in approach. Employing a curious cast, James White might prove to be more visually and emotionally more daring than the work of his closest peers in Campos and Durkin.

Gist: This coming-of-ager is about a troubled young man (Abbott) in the midst of momentous family challenges.

Release Date: Shooting began towards the end of 2013, so this rushed this could be ready for Cannes but would likely be a perfect fit for Venice and NYFF.
