Listed by the LA Times as one of the festivals most anticipated features, Juliet, Naked will receive its World Premiere at the Sundance Film Festival today at 18:45.
Directed by Jesse Peretz (Girls, Glow, Orange is the New Black) with Production Design by Sarah Finlay, Juliet, Naked is produced by Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, The Big Sick, Trainwreck) and stars Ethan Hawke, Rose Byrne & Chris O’Dowd.
Sundance: Annie is stuck in a long-term relationship with Duncan—an obsessive fan of obscure rocker Tucker Crowe. Duncan is far more devoted to his music idol than to Annie. When the acoustic demo of Tucker’s hit record from 25 years ago surfaces, it leads to a life-changing encounter between Annie and the elusive rocker himself.
Adapted from the best-selling novel by Nick Hornby (An Education), Juliet, Naked marks the return to the Sundance Film Festival for director Jesse Peretz (Our Idiot Brother). Orchestrating the exceptional acting talents of Rose Byrne, Ethan Hawke, and Chris O’Dowd, Peretz hits all the right chords of humour and drama in bringing the beloved novel to life. Featuring remarkable insight about love and loneliness, and enlivened with a fantastic soundtrack that will have you humming as you leave the theatre, Juliet, Naked is about the struggle to live up to one’s promise and serves as a humorous testament to the power of music to guide the heart.
