2014 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Debbie Tucker Green’s Second Coming

Known for exploring psychological terrain with a tactful and poetic profundity, she broke out on filmic terms with the ’09 short Heat, British Academy Television Award for Best Single Drama winner Random (2011) for which she employed the services of thesp/muse Nadine Marshall. Part of the 2012 edition of Sundance’s June Screenwriters Lab, Brit playwright (prolific pace) and filmmaker Debbie Tucker Green (who also goes by the lower-cased debbie tucker green) commenced shooting on the BFI-funded contempo drama in April of this year. Marshall who got a nom for Random, and mostly recently was cast in Green’s play, would join the feature alongside some mega wattage in Idris Elba. With no Andrea Arnold film in sight for ’14, we look forward to for Green’s feature debut contribution, which includes the work of Lilting cinematographer Urszula Pontikos.
