Looking for an escape from her recurring nightmares, 18-year-old Sarah Dunne (Julia Sarah Stone, The Killing) submits to a university sleep study, but soon realizes that she’s become the conduit to a frightening new discovery in Come True. Dreams twist and nightmares become reality in this mind-altering new work of science fiction from writer/director Anthony Scott Burns (Our House) that haunts the space between wakefulness and sleep.
After leaving graduate school to pursue her dream of becoming a writer, Joanna (Margaret Qualley, The Leftovers) gets hired as an assistant to Margaret (Sigourney Weaver, Gorillas In The Mist,The TV Set), the stoic and old-fashioned literary agent of J. D. Salinger. Fluctuating between poverty and glamour, she spends her days in a plush, wood-paneled office – where Dictaphones and typewriters still reign and agents doze off after three-martini lunches – and her nights in a Brooklyn apartment with her socialist boyfriend. Joanna’s main task is processing Salinger’s voluminous fan mail, but as she reads the heart-wrenching letters from around the world, she becomes reluctant to send the agency’s impersonal standard letter and impulsively begins personalizing the responses. The results are both humorous and moving as Joanna, while using the great writer’s voice, begins to discover her own.
LittleFish, from director Chad Hartigan (Morris From America), is a romance set in a near-future Seattle teetering on the brink of calamity. Starring Olivia Cooke (Ready Player One), Jack O’Connell (Unbroken), Soko (Her), and RaúlCastillo (Looking), the film opens in the midst of a global epidemic from Neuroinflammatory Affliction, a severe and rapid Alzheimer’s-like condition in which people’s memories disappear. Couple Jude Williams and Emma Ryerson are grappling with the realities of NIA, interspersed with glimpses from the past as the two meet and their relationship blooms. But as NIA’s grip on society tightens, blurring the lines between the past and the present, it becomes more and more difficult to know what’s true and what’s false.
