Luke Wilson, Elisabeth Moss & Nathasha Lyonne Begin Healing Process in Morano’s “Meadowland”

Elisabeth Moss and Nathasha Lyonne are joining the already cast Olivia Wilde as the principle female players and Luke Wilson is re-teaming with The Skeleton Twins (a brilliant Sundance dramedy – see trailer belowdp Reed Morano in the cinematographer’s directorial debut. Produced by Wilde, Matt Tauber (Autumn Blood), Bron Studios’ Aaron L. Gilbert (upcoming The Driftless Area), Margot Hand and executive produced by Jennifer Levine and Jason Cloth, Meadowland will commence shooting in New York City next month.

Gist: Written by Chris Rossi,  this follows a couple, Sarah (Wilde) and David (Wilson) who deal with the unthinkable in the wake of their son’s disappearance. David, a New York City policeman, attempts a more traditional form of healing, only to lose his moral compass. Sarah goes down an unexpected path towards acceptance as she places herself in increasingly dangerous situations.

Worth Noting: Perhaps taking a page from Elisabeth Moss, Luke Wilson & Nathasha Lyonne have kickstarted their film careers via television stints on “Enlightened” and “Orange Is the New Black.”

Do We Care?: A must see indie item for ’15, leave it to Frozen RiverFor Ellen and War Story cinematographer Morano to bring some darkness in the light visual dualism in this Rabbit Hole-esque psychological portrait.
