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:
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:
