2013 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: David Posamentier and Geoff Moore’s Better Living Through Chemistry

Another pair of first-time directors working from a Blacklist screenplay (number 13 on the 2010) and with a parka friendly clan of four frequent Park City visitors, David Posamentier and Geoff Moore’s debut film Better Living Through Chemistry is perhaps a great fit for the Premieres section. Comedy features Sam Rockwell, Michelle Monaghan (see their on location pic above), Olivia Wilde and Ray Liotta.

Gist: This is about a small-town pharmacist (Rockwell) who is stuck in a loveless marriage and who rediscovers himself through an affair with a trophy wife (Wilde) who introduces him to the pleasures of prescription drugs. Things spin out of control when the affair escalates and the lovers begin plotting to kill the woman’s husband.

Production Co./Producers: Occupant Films’ Felipe Marino and Joe Neurater

Prediction: Premieres section

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
