Sundance Premiere: In a World

"I’m just an avid trailer watcher" admits Lake Bell, writer/director/star of her film, In A World, which played at Sundance yesterday. In the story, Lake plays a down and out vocal coach with big dreams of making it in the trailer voice industry. It doesn’t help that her characters father is the world famous trailer voice guy in a field dominated by men. In the laugh-out-loud feature, Lake says there is a minor feminist message tucked inside the film, or as she jokingly told The Inside Source, “gentle feminism”.

"I was always obsessed with the fact that…[MORE] omniscient trailer voices are always male". In the comedy, Lake’s character is hyper conscious of women’s high-pitched "sexy baby" voices, which she feels are "vocal viruses" that diminish a woman’s strength, thereby subtly adding another conversation about voice culture to the movie. "It was a nice marriage of topics" she explained about her directorial debut. "I hope it comes off in a funny way".

Lovelace
Behold the sassy new poster for Lovelace presented at the Sundance Film Festival last night in Park City, Utah. The film has been buzzed about since 2010 after Lindsay Lohan was hired and fired for the coveted role. This teaser clip was introduced online a few days ago showing one of the films scenes which illustrates her rise to fame. The premiere proved Amanda to be the best choice, with a thunderous applause as the lights came on at the end. Sharon Stone also shows serious acting chops playing… [MORE] Lovelace’s stone-cold conservative mother. No doubt the flick will be a hit this year, as well as the impetus to go out and buy Lovelace’s autobiography. Here are a few copies of the book, Ordeal, on eBay if you want to go out and begin your homework on this woman’s life.

Sundance Premiere: Very Good Girls

The Inside Source attended Sundance’s premiere of Very Good Girls, a film written and directed by Naomi Foner, with a score by Jenny Lewis. Naomi’s son, Jake Gyllenhall, joined her son-in-law, Peter Sarsgaard, in the audience. Breakout star, Boyd Holbrook (seen above) acts as the love interest in a triangle between Dakota Fanning’s and Elizabeth Olson’s characters. When asked why there were no cell phones in the middle of a teen story, Dakota (seen above) answered ”We discussed limiting the use of that. “I’ve grown up in a generation of iPads, iPhones, Blackberrys, and all that takes away from the human-to-human connection, which is what this movie is all about.”

Sundance Premiere: Lovelace
The Inside Source attended the premiere for Lovelace at the Sundance Film Festival. What seemed like a potentially silly movie on porn was instead a profound statement on domestic violence. “It was a fascinating story to tell,” Amanda Seyfried admitted to a room of over a thousand applauding guests. “I was looking for a challenge; it was the perfect fit for me. I wanted to be the voice of Linda. She wanted to be heard, and wrote a bunch of books [to express that]. She was an anti-porn activist, which we didn’t get much into in the movie, but she had so much to say. I wanted to make her feel validated.” In an era where porn is more hip than ever, this film questions the dark narratives lurking within.

Sundance Premiere: Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes

Early into Sundance 2013 was the premiere of Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes. Director Francesca Gregorini searched high and low in Hollywood for the right girl to play the “messed up teenager” she scripted. As fate would have it, she finally found her girl… but not in Los Angeles. Instead, Francesca cast a Brit, Kaya Scodelario (keep an eye on this actress). The afterparty took place at Westway, a pop-up venue brought over from New York. Owners Matt Kliegman and Carlos Quirarte (above) partied all night with guests that included cutie Z Berg of the band The Like (above).
