The Cub Arrives Online

Last year, Mary’s husband Riley Stearns directed, wrote and produced a short film titled The Cub which Mary produced. The short film went on to play at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. You can check out the short film below and see a behind the scenes pic here.

The short is pretty great, so be sure to give it a watch! 🙂

You can also see an interview with Riley talking about the film here.

Sundance Screening Schedule for The Spectacular Now and The Cub Released

Sundance has posted the screening times for two of Mary’s other films premiering at Sundance next month: The Spectacular Now and The Cub. First, here’s the screening schedule for The Spectacular Now, which will premiere Friday, January 18 at 8:30 pm at the Library Center Theatre, Park City. The additional screening times are:

1/20/2013 3:30 pm
1/22/2013 Noon
Eccles Theatre, Park City
1/23/2013 6:00 pm
Tower Theatre, Salt Lake City
1/25/2013 5:30 pm

Sutter Keely lives in the now. It’s a good place for him. A high school senior, charming and self-possessed, he’s the life of the party, loves his job at a men’s clothing store, and has no plans for the future. A budding alcoholic, he’s never far from his supersized, whisky-fortified 7UP cup. But after being dumped by his girlfriend, Sutter gets drunk and wakes up on a lawn with Aimee Finicky hovering over him. Not a member of the cool crowd, she’s different: the “nice girl” who reads science fiction and doesn’t have a boyfriend. She does have dreams, while Sutter lives in a world of impressive self-delusion. And yet they’re drawn to each other.

Adapted from Tim Tharp’s novel, The Spectacular Now captures the insecurity and confusion of adolescence without looking for tidy truths. Young actors rarely portray teens with the maturity that Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley display, and they are phenomenal together. Funny, compassionate, and poignant, James Ponsoldt’s third feature again demonstrates his ability to lay bare the souls of his characters.

Also, the short-film The Cub which Mary executive produced and was written and directed by her husband Riley Stearns, will be screening with Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant’s  Hell Baby movie at Sundancefest. If you want to see The Cub, the screening times for Hell Baby are as follows:

1/20/2013 11:45 pm

1/21/2013 6:00 pm
Tower Theatre, Salt Lake City

1/23/2013 11:59 pm
Egyptian Theatre, Park City

1/26/2013 5:30 pm
