2013 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Untitled Nicole Holofcener Comedy

A creative advisor, panelist and filmmaker who premiered every single one of her films at the festival from her 1991 short film Angry to 2010’s Please Give with Walking and Talking (Sundance ’96), Lovely & Amazing (Sundance ’01) Friends with Money (Sundance ’06) in between, Nicole Holofcener might as well Park City give her the key to the city as she pretty much owns Main Street. But it may be up to Fox Searchlight to ultimately decide whether they want to unspoil at this fest.

Gist: This focuses on Eva (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) who finds the strength to put her divorce behind her when she meets the strong-willed Marianne (Catherine Keener). As a result, Eva starts dating a new man (James Gandolfini) only to discover that he’s Marianne’s ex-husband.

Production Co./Producers: Likely Story’s Anthony Bregman.
