It is tempting to say writer-director-actor Joe Swanberg has had a busy 2013 given he released his most high-profile film to date in the form of Drinking Buddies and superlatively portrayed a tool of an older brother in the sadly underseen horror film You’re Next. However, every year is a busy one for Swanberg, who has directed well over a dozen movies over the past decade and acted in many more.
“But what’s he done for us recently?” you cry. Good question. The answer is All the Light in the Sky, his latest comedy-drama which stars Jane Adams (Hung, Happiness, the forthcoming Poltergeist remake) as a Malibu-dwelling actress, Sophia Takal as her visiting niece, and director Larry Fessenden as a man who, amongst other things, does one hell of a Jack Nicholson impression.
All The Light In The Sky will be released theatrically in select cities December 20 and will also be available to view via VOD and iTunes. Nearer that date we’ll be running an interview with Jane Adams, who also cowrote the movie with Swanberg. But for now you can check out the film’s trailer below and Teddy Blanks-designed poster above.
