2013 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Andrew Levitas’ Lullaby

If Andrew Levitas does crack the Sundance line-up, the trade headlines will mention his skill-set inventory (read his wiki page). In the film world, Levitas moved from acting to producing (The Art of Getting By, At Any Price) to his first gig which started filming this past June in New York City and which has been in post since August. Lullaby‘s all-star cast includes Garrett Hedlund, Amy Adams, Jessica Brown Findlay, Terrence Howard, Richard Jenkins and Jennifer Hudson.

Gist: Based on Levitas’ own original screenplay, the film explores the “power of life, its transformative moments and reconnections between loved ones” with the official plot summary being, “Estranged from his family, Jonathan (Hedlund) receives word that his father, Robert (Jenkins), who has been fighting illness for over a decade has chosen to take himself off life support in less than forty-eight hours. What follows is an unexpected journey of love, laughter, and forgiveness.”

Production Co./Producers: Cary and Andrea Stone-Brokaw
