2021 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Robin Wright’s Land

2021 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Robin Wright’s Land

After getting the directing bug on the House of Cards for just under a dozen episodes, Robin Wright moved into the director’s chair for her debut feature film in October of 2019 in frozen Alberta. We figured that the Cannes or TIFF would have been ideal venues for this Focus Features project, but perhaps a world premiere could occur during Sundance. Starring herself, Demián Bichir and Kim Dickens in a supporting role, Land is a four seasons tragi-drama based on a screenplay by Jesse Chatham, Liz Hannah and Erin Dignam.

Gist: Edee Mathis (Wright), a lawyer consumed by grief who resolves to remove herself completely from life as she has known it and disappear. With advice from online survivalists, she moves to the most unpopulated area in the U.S., living in a cabin in the Shoshone National Forest in Wyoming.

Production Co./Producers: Allyn Stewart, Lora Kennedy, Big Beach’s Peter Saraf and Leah Holzer.
