Coin: Budget of $520,000 was cobbled together with private funds via friends and an investment from Voom HD Pictures. Roadside Attractions is handling domestic release.
Buzz: Frank Langella plays a fading writer who gets attention from a grad student (Lauren Ambrose). Indie stalwart Lili Taylor plays his daughter. Langella, hot off his Tony win, could rep this pic’s best shot at awards, while the adapted script by director Andrew Wagner and Fred Parnes has an outside chance.
Kudos: Competed in dramatic competition at Sundance. Langella and script are nominated for Spirit Awards.
