2021 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Bryan Wizemann’s You Mean Everything to Me
Persistence pays off. Bryan Wizemann has been painstakingly hacking away at indie film since 1998’s Sense following that with 2005’s Losing Ground, 2011’s About Sunny (TIFF) and finally his fourth feature in You Mean Everything to Me. Recently awarded the Rooftop Films and Brigade Festival Publicity grant and accepted into the Sundance Institute Film Music and Sound Design Lab, the shoestring budgeted film features the likes of Morgan Saylor and Ben Rosenfield, with Lindsay Burdge in a smaller role.
Gist: After getting kicked out of her sister’s place, Cassandra falls hard and fast for Nathan, a local DJ. Caught up in a whirlwind romance, he soon starts distancing them from her friends and family, and his demands grow increasingly darker. Confused and desperate, Cassandra must figure out how to save another from the same fate, and decide what her own freedom is worth.
