Best of Fest: Mon. February 1, 9:30pm, Peery's Egyptian Theater, Ogden
Alone on a tiny deserted island, Hank has given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a dead body washes ashore, and he soon realizes it may be his last opportunity to escape certain death. Armed with his new “friend” and an unusual bag of tricks, the duo go on an epic adventure to bring Hank back to the woman of his dreams.
Music video gurus “The Daniels,” a.k.a. Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan, craft a wholly original debut feature bursting with limitless creativity both in content and form. Their consistently surprising script spans a wide range of emotions: from the ridiculously absurd to a touching exploration of what it means to be human. Given what are likely to be some of the most unique roles of their acting careers, co-leads Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe give their all to a movie that celebrates the wonder that cinema offers.
Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (DANIELS) are an award-winning directing duo. One time they won Best Director at The MTV Video Music Awards, but both their moms were bummed that they don’t announce that category on TV. They made all their music videos and short films with Prettybird, and they’re represented by Mosaic. Okay, bye.
