Peter Sattler could very well be making a return trip to Sundance following up 2014’s Camp X-Ray (we called it a remarkable screenwriting and directorial debut) with further dramatic tensions in Love & Oatmeal – a film that is toplined via the likes of Yvette Nicole Brown, Lola Kirke, Alphonso McAuley and Ben Platt. Shot in Vancouver, production began in June and they already had Park City regular in composer Keegan Dewitt score onboard for what could be an early 2019 bow.
Gist: Written by Steve Waverly, In the wake of his father’s death, a twenty-something writer sees his dream of moving to Paris put in jeopardy when he’s forced to temporarily take in his wildly unpredictable, mentally ill sister.
Production Co./Producers: Black Label Media’s Molly Smith, Rachel Smith, Thad Luckinbill & Trent Luckinbill (Sicario) with Trina Wyatt.
Prediction: U.S Dramatic Comp or Premieres section.
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available. TBD (domestic). TBD (international).
