Exclusive Thirst Street Poster: Obsessed By Romance; Watch New Trailer Too

15 August 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

On a layover in Paris, flight attendant Gina decides to change her life and soon finds herself doing things she might never have imagined before. It's an intoxicating premise, one that is explored colorfully in Nathan Silver's Thirst Street, opening in theaters next month. We are pleased to debut a new poster for the film, which you can see in full below. To put things more fully into context, here's the official synopsis. Alone and depressed after the suicide of her lover, American flight attendant Gina (Lindsay Burdge, A Teacher) travels to Paris and hooks up with nightclub bartender Jerome (Damien Bonnard, Staying Vertical) on her layover. But as Gina falls deeper into lust and opts to stay in France, this harmless rendezvous quickly turns...

Official Us Trailer for Psychosexual French Drama Film 'Thirst Street'

10 August 2017 9:54 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Who is the girl? Did you two have sex?" Samuel Goldwyn Films has debuted the official Us trailer for a new indie film titled Thirst Street, a psychosexual drama that premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival this year. The film stars Lindsay Burdge (star of the indie film A Teacher) as a flight attendant still reeling over the suicide of her boyfriend, who hooks up with a bartender in Paris on one of her layovers. But she soon gets sucked into this lust and then falls even further into madness when his ex shows up and messes with everything. The film's full cast includes Damien Bonnard, Anjelica Huston, Esther Garrel, Lola Bessis, Alice de Lencquesaing, and Jacques Nolot. This looks very 70s in story and in color palette, which seems like an interesting if not cliched choice. It also seems totally twisted and insane, so watch out. Here's the official »

Trailer for Nathan Silver’s ‘Thirst Street’ Depicts a Paris-Set Psychodrama

9 August 2017 4:50 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

There’s one thing that connects some of my favorite American independent films of the last few years: cinematography of Sean Price Williams. Following Listen Up PhilipKate Plays Christine, Heaven Knows What, Golden ExitsMarjorie Prime, Queen of Earth, and Good Time, his latest project is Thirst Street, from director Nathan Silver. Ahead of a September release, the first trailer has landed for the film following an American flight attendant who tries to make a romantic connection in Paris and things don’t go as planned.

“Sean [Price Williams] and I were talking and one key image was that crazy image from Fassbinder’s Lola (1981) where she’s sitting in bed and there are a million different colours on her,” Silver tells The Seventh Art. “We talked about always looking for ways to heighten the lighting and we used anamorphic lenses in Paris and then when we were in the U. »

‘Thirst Street’ Trailer: Lindsay Burdge Stalks In A Wry Psycho Sexual Drama

7 August 2017 11:45 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Of all the films I saw at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival, Nathan Silver’s “Thirst Street” was easily the best one. Starring Lindsay Burdge (“A Teacher”), the movie is influenced by the erotic 1970s dramas of Rainer Werner Fassbinder, but gives a deviously funny edge (think Roman Polanski’s “The Tenant”) to what is a delicious psycho sexual drama.

Andrew Droz Palermo || A Process Close To Music || The Cinematography Of A Ghost Story

3 August 2017 4:06 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Would you have guessed A Ghost Story’s aesthetic was primarily formed instinctually day by day? I wouldn’t have, and I didn’t. The fact derailed everything I thought I knew about Andrew Droz Palermo (Cinematographer: You’re Next, Rich Hill, A Teacher) and David Lowery’s (Writer/Director: Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, Pete’s Dragon) formal motivations and forced the interview to operate in an intuitive mode similar to the film’s process.

Each day Andrew operated with the immediacy of a musician, or as close to that as the film industry allows. Even the most premeditated of shots/scenes could undergo major adjustments on the day, and they weren’t beholden to any rules for the sake of developing their own grammar. The film’s small budget allowed them to take their time and properly evaluate the results of their intuition.

I caught Andrew in between shoots. »

Cannes: Lindsay Burdge’s Comic Drama ‘Thirst Street’ Lands at Samuel Goldwyn

19 May 2017 3:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Samuel Goldwyn Films has bought North American rights to Nathan Silver’s dark comedy “Thirst Street,” starring Lindsay Burdge (“A Teacher”) and Damien Bonnard (“Staying Vertical”).

The film, narrated by Anjelica Huston, is directed by Silver from a script he co-wrote with C. Mason Wells. The Paris-set tale of romantic obsession had its world premiere last month at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival and is set for release later this year.

The deal was announced Friday at the Cannes Film Festival. Burdge portrays a grief-stricken American flight attendant on a layover in Paris, where she hooks up with nightclub bartender, played by Bonnard. As she falls deeper into lust and opts to stay in France, his ex reenters the picture, sending the flight attendant on a downward spiral of miscommunication, masochism, and madness.

Variety first reported on the project a year ago at Cannes. Producers are Louise Bellicaud and Claire Charles-Gervais »

Memo to Distributors: Buy These 2017 Tribeca Film Festival Movies

1 May 2017 3:33 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The 2017 Tribeca Film Festival has come and gone, but several of its highlights face an uncertain future. While the festival opened with an iTunes-ready documentary about Clive Davis and closed with back-to-back screenings of the first two “Godfather” films, many of the films in its competition sections arrived at the festival without distribution deals and ended it in the same state. Here’s at a few significant titles from this year’s edition that deserve to get picked up.


Overachieving multi-hyphenate Quinn Shephard was just 20 when she wrote, directed, produced, edited and starred in her feature directorial debut, a modern spin on Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible,” set in the witch hunt capital of contemporary America: the suburban high school. While Shephard cast herself as the film’s Abigail Williams — an outcast with secrets to spare who gets entangled with a smoldering substitute teacher, played by Chris Messina — the »

‘Blame’ Review: Quinn Shephard Makes a Strong First Impression in Her Debut as Writer, Director, and Star

30 April 2017 11:07 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There’s good reason for “Blame” to feel lived-in and authentic: Writer, director and star Quinn Shephard is only 22 years old, making her just a few years removed from the film’s high-school environs. Given the nature of her Arthur Miller-inflected debut, one hopes she had an easier go of it than her character does.

Said heroine is Abigail, and if you’ve read “The Crucible” you might know why. Recently discharged from a mental institution, the troubled teen is now tasked with resuming her studies among a clique of mean girls who write harassing messages on her locker and generally do their utmost to make life miserable. Melissa (Nadia Alexander) serves as ringleader, though Shephard makes plain that Melissa’s habit of spreading misery to others is borne of her own pain. There are more victims than villains here, even if the impulse is always to assign, well, »

'Thirst Street': Film Review | Tribeca 2017

21 April 2017 4:05 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Lindsay Burdge showed a willingness to hold nothing back in her ballsy portrayal of dangerously single-minded romantic obsession in the 2013 Sundance entry A Teacher. Her character retains even fewer vestiges of dignity or rationality in Nathan Silver's Thirst Street, an idiosyncratic but distancing genre blend that folds together melodrama, suggestions of horror and a lurid fascination with sex, intoxication and despair evocative of 1970s Euro art movies. While the caustic ending might be interpreted as some kind of feminist revenge twist, the unsympathetic characters and punishing situations will likely confine this to the indie-streaming fringe.

Principal Photography Kicks Off for Hannah Fidell’s “The Long Dumb Road”

13 April 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Hannah Fidell: Perri Nemiroff/ YouTube

Hannah Fidell is following up “6 Years,” her portrait of dysfunctional young love, with a buddy comedy. Principal photography for “The Long Dumb Road” has begun in Albuquerque, New Mexico, a press release has announced.

Tony Revolori (“Grand Budapest Hotel”) and Jason Mantzoukas (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”) star as two men who have little in common but are both at personal crossroads. They “meet serendipitously and take an unpredictable journey through the American Southwest,” the film’s official synopsis reveals. “At once comedic and honest, the film explores how differences in class, race, age, and life experience divide us, and how they can ultimately bring us together.”

Taissa Farmiga (“American Horror Story”), who starred in Fidell’s 2015 relationship drama “6 Years,” has a supporting role in the project. The ensemble cast also includes Grace Gummer (“Good Girls Revolt”), Casey Wilson (“Happy Endings”), and Ron Livingston (“Drinking Buddies”).

“It’s been my experience that the indie/festival world is very female-director friendly. It’s those higher-budgeted projects where it seems to be harder to break through,” Fidell told us when “6 Years” premiered at SXSW. At the time, she was working on the screenplay for “The Long Dumb Road.” “I’m in the middle of writing a comedy — two dudes on a road trip — that I co-wrote with my friend Carson Mell,” she said. “He wrote on ‘Eastbound and Down’ and currently writes on ‘Silicon Valley,’ so you know this film will be very different from anything I’ve done before, just as the improv-heavy ‘6 Years’ was vastly different from the meticulously planned out and scripted ‘A Teacher.’ I like a good challenge. And I like to feel that I’m always learning something new,” she emphasized.

The Long Dumb Road” was financed by Gamechanger Films, which invests in narrative features helmed by women. Fidell and Jacqueline “Jj” Ingram (“Operator”) are producing alongside Jonathan Duffy and Kelly Williams of Ten Acre Films (“Hellion”). Mynette Louie (“Lovesong”) and Alicia Van Couvering (“Christine”) are serving as executive producers along with Gamechanger’s Julie Parker Benello, Dan Cogan, Geralyn Dreyfous, and Wendy Ettinger.

Principal Photography Kicks Off for Hannah Fidell’s “The Long Dumb Road” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Silly Halloween Costume Takes on New Levity in A Ghost Story [Trailer]

28 March 2017 9:14 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

The images from David Lowery's A Ghost Story are sort of ridiculous. Some feature star Rooney Mara looking morose, after all the movie centers on her dealing with the loss of her husband played by Casey Affleck, while others feature a white sheet with black eyes. My initial gut reaction is to laugh but now that I've seen the trailer, I'm not so sure.

A24's has released the first trailer for the movie and it's anything but funny. It's beautiful, featuring a dream-like, almost magical approach to the cinematography - in this case from Andrew Droz Palermo of You're Next, A Teacher and Rich Hill fame, but most notably, it's incredibly sad and the ghost? The white sheet with the black eyeholes? At one point it feels downright creepy.
