Indies in the Awards Mix

Coin: Financed with private equity via first-time producer Michael Roiff’s shingle Night and Day Pictures. Picked up at Sundance this year by Fox Searchlight.

Buzz: Keri Russell is pitch perfect as a Southern belle trying to escape a bad marriage in Searchlight’s summer indie hit. Actress-writer-director Adrienne Shelly, who was tragically murdered before the film opened at Sundance, could also get some posthumous kudo support.

Kudos: Won awards at Sarasota and Newport Beach fests. Shelly’s script is nominated for a Spirit Award.
