2024 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Justin Anderson’s Swimming Home

2024 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Justin Anderson’s Swimming Home

Our most anticipated feature debut films for this year is indeed ready but it’ll be dropping in 2024 instead. Perhaps a fest that is big on debut films might lasso Justin Anderson‘s Swimming Home. The commercials director grabbed the rights to adapt the book by (Deborah Levy) a good decade ago and managed to land quite the producing team and quartet of indie-auteur-world-cinema vets Ariane Labed, Christopher Abbott, Mackenzie Davis and Nadine Labaki for what is a vacation film in Greece that takes a turn for the best/worst? Production took place in October of last year.

Gist: This is a dark comedy about a troubled married couple and their teenage daughter whose holiday is transformed by the naked stranger they find floating in the pool of their villa.

Production Co./Producers: Quiddity Films’ Emily Morgan, Andy Starke, Paul Linhares, Marcos Tellechea, Giorgos Karnavas.

Prediction: World Cinema Dramatic Competition.

Sales: Bankside.
