2015 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Andrew Bujalski’s Results

Andrew Bujalski’s Computer Chess turned out to be the feel good film of Sundance and that’s not because the early gamers are particularly charming, but rather, better things come in small packages. Following Funny Ha Ha (2002), Mutual Appreciation (2005) and Beeswax (2009),  this 30-something filmmaker, who in some circles is known as the godfather of the Mumblecore movement didn’t waste much time between the ’13 Sundance Film Fest Alfred Sloan Feature Film Prize winning micro-feature and his fifth, more macro-type budgeted ensemble project. Guy Pearce toplines alongside Cobie Smulders, Kevin Corrigan, Giovanni Ribisi, Brooklyn Decker, Anthony Michael Hall, SXSW Special Jury Prize Best Actor winner Tishuan Scott (The Retrieval) and Boyhood‘s Zoe Graham. Filming began in mid-summer on Results, and we’re assuming correctly by the first glimpse (see pic above) we got in September that this will bow in Park City with the director’s habitual stopover at SXSW.

Gist:  This centers on two personal trainers and what happens when an out-of-shape and newly wealthy man enters their lives.

Production Co./Producers: Burn Later Productions’ Paul Bernon and Sam Slater (Adult Beginners), Houston King.

Prediction: U.S. Dramatic Competition

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available. TBD (domestic). TBD (international).
