The South by Southwest Film Conference and Festival has unveiled its completed features lineup — consisting of 130 films — for the festival on March 9 – 17 in Austin.
Included as part of “Emerging Visions” is the Irish Dollhouse, which comes from writer/director Kirsten Sheridan. “ Five street teens break into a house in a rich Dublin suburb for a night of partying. But games are twisted into something more emotional and ultimately out of control through a series of surprising revelations. It will be the North American premiere.”
And while we wait for the genre selections to be announced, a few “Festival Favorites” return to the rounds. They include Blair Witch director Eduardo Sanchez’s Lovely Molly (review), which preemed at last September’s TIFF. “Exploring the parallels between psychosis, addiction and demonic possession, Lovely Molly tells the story of what really happens before the exorcist arrives.
Gareth Huw Evans’ explosively violent The Raid (review) kicks SXSW in the teeth. “ Rama and his special forces team fight their way through a rundown apartment block with a mission to remove its owner, a notorious drug lord.
Lastly, Bobcat Goldthwait’s less-than-stellar God Bless America will have its U.S. premiere. “Loveless, jobless, possibly terminally ill, Frank has had enough of the downward spiral of America. With nothing left to lose, Frank takes his gun and offs the stupidest, cruelest, and most repellent members of society.”
