2017 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Alex Ross Perry’s Golden Exits

Not to Pooh Pooh on the selection process (forgive the pun), but the last time I predicted an Alex Ross Perry film was going to Sundance, it actually bypassed the fest and waited until Berlin to preem. We’re betting that the Sundance folks might want to land Perry back into the fold with the feature he made before getting into Hollywood mode. Filming under the radar this past May in New York, Golden Exits stars Analeigh Tipton, Emily Browning, Chloë Sevigny, Mary-Louise Parker, Lily Rabe, Jason Schwartzman and Adam Horovitz. You got music by
Keegan DeWitt, film editing by Robert Greene and production design via Fletcher Chancey and Scott Kuzio (who we put on our midyear tech rankings for his work on Christine).

Gist: An intersectional narrative of two families in Brooklyn and the unraveling of unspoken unhappiness that occurs when a young foreign girl spending time abroad upsets the balance on both sides.

Production Co./Producers: Joshua Blum (Thirst Street), Faliro House Productions’ Christos V. Konstantakopoulos (Infinity Baby), Alex Ross Perry, Adam Piotrowicz, Washington Square Films’ Katie Stern (Francine).

Prediction: Premieres category.

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