Madlands: Seimetz’ Relationship Drama Takes Us on a Road Trip to Love Hell

Managing to balance an insanely busy schedule that boasts quality and quantity, actress/producer Amy Seimetz debuts her feature directorial debut with the histrionically inclined Sun Don’t Shine. A sweaty slow-burn thriller, she throws us right in the mix and manages to keep us intrigued with a satisfying mix of emotions and murderous intentions right to the very end. Popping up out of the Mumblecore crowd after working in several Joe Swanberg efforts, as a well working with Lena Dunham and Megan Griffiths, among many others, Seimetz won Best Actress at Fantastic Fest for 2010’s A Horrible Way to Die. With anywhere between ten or more projects per year, she somehow managed to make this enjoyable doozy of a feature, a vicious tale of a dangerous love.
