2022 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Andrew Dosunmu’s Beauty

2022 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Andrew Dosunmu’s Beauty

Originally slated for a 2021 release, the Netflix folks appear to have switched their strategy on Andrew Dosunmu‘s fifth feature film. A long time member of the the Sundance Film Fest (2011’s Restless City, 2013’s Mother of George and Where Is Kyra? all premiered here) it would make all the sense in the echo-system if Beauty premieres in Park City. Completed in September of 2019, the New York shot item includes Giancarlo Esposito, Sharon Stone and Aleyse Shannon while it was supported by Lena Waithe and lensed by cinematographer Benoît Delhomme (At Eternity’s Gate).

Gist: This is the tale of Beauty, an up-and-coming young singer with a glamorous career ahead of her, and Jasmine, a butch queer woman who falls for her. Their love for each other soon hits a snag when one’s family and strict religious upbringing threaten to end their burgeoning romance.

Production Co./Producers: Michael Ellenberg, Hillman Grad Productions’ Rishi Rajani and Lena Waithe.

Prediction: PREMIERES.

U.S. Distributor: Netflix.
