Sundance 2015: Joe Swanberg Channels Cassavetes in the Star-Studded ‘Digging for Fire’

PARK CITY, UT: In the Q&A session following Sunday night’s Sundance Film Festival premiere of Joe Swanberg’s new film Digging for Fire, star Rosemarie DeWitt recalled getting a text from co-star Sam Rockwell shortly after production began — a text reading, as she recalled, “What the eff is this movie about?” Many of the responses in the Sundance Twittersphere (the best harbinger of that most valuable of commodities up here, “buzz”) have roughly paraphrased that reaction; word is that it’s a meandering, dull mess.

‘I Smile Back': Why Did Sarah Silverman Need a Serious Drama to Become a “Serious Actor”?

Indiewire called her “completely riveting.” Variety insisted, “rarely has a performer striven so concertedly to shed any trace of his/her comedy roots.” And Hollywood Reporter wrote of her “gutsy performance” “annihilating almost every trace of her comedy persona.” On the ground, the skill of her turn has generated nothing less than surprise — she’s so good, and so dramatic! But it should no longer shock anyone that a comic actor is also skilled at drama, not just because there’s such precedence for it, but because comic actors are too often regarded simply as second-class thespians. … Read More
