2022 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Amanda Kramer’s Please Baby Please

2022 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Amanda Kramer’s Please Baby Please

Currently on an amazing almost film per year streak, Amanda Kramer first landed onto the film festival scene with 2018’s Ladyworld (TIFF selection) and currently has a pair of features items in post – the one we’re focused on is the shot in October and in Montana project that netted Andrea Riseborough, Harry Melling, Demi Moore, Karl Glusman and Ryan Simpkins. Please Baby Please is about a couple’s honeymoon period that goes off the rails — a project set in the 50’s and Kramer reteams with scribe Noel David Taylor.

Gist: This follows newlyweds Suze and Arthur who, after witnessing a murder in the gritty streets of a surreal 1950s Manhattan, become the dangerous obsession of a greaser gang that awakens a sleeping quandary about the couple’s sexual identity.

Production Co./Producers: Gül Karakiz, Mike Witherill, Rivulet Media’s Rob Paris

Prediction: NEXT.

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available. TBA (domestic, international).
