Sundance Film Festival has announced their 2017 dramatic competition and world premieres and to our surprise, Lily’s upcoming movie To The Bone is one of the lucky movies!
The festival’s U.S. dramatic competition comprises 16 films, eight of them debut features, including Matt Spicer’s social-media stalker comedy “Ingrid Goes West,” in which Aubrey Plaza’s character is obsessed with the aforementioned Olsen; the music-driven story of a plus-size white rapper, “Patti Cake$,” written and directed by Geremy Jasper (a member of Court 13, the creative team responsible for “Beasts of the Southern Wild”); and “To the Bone,” an intimate look at anorexia, from “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” producer Marti Noxon.
“To the Bone” (Director and screenwriter: Marti Noxon) — In a last-ditch effort to battle her severe anorexia, 20-year-old Ellen enters a group recovery home. With the help of an unconventional doctor, Ellen and the other residents go on a sometimes-funny, sometimes-harrowing journey that leads to the ultimate question: Is life worth living?
