The Sleepwalker
Sundance is a place for discovery, where new talent can shine in front of an audience hungry for revelation. With their new film “The Sleepwalker,” co-screenwriters Mona Fastvold and Brady Corbet (she directs, he stars) have auspiciously debuted their creative partnership, which is already three screenplays deep. (He will direct their next feature, “The Childhood of a Leader,” starring Robert Pattinson, Tim Roth and Juliette Binoche, later this year, and a third project will follow.)

The Sleepwalker
In sleepy rural Massachusetts, the illusory nature of domestic bliss fractures easily like the first frost of a winter chill. 20-somethings Kaia (Gitte Witt) and her boyfriend Andrew (ex “Girls” star Christopher Abbott) live a quiet life, renovating her late father’s isolated and modern estate. If famed architect Le Corbusier once said “the home should be the treasure chest of living,” then the structural marvel that is this domicile is more of a hollowed out trunk that contains plenty of dark skeletons. Beautiful on the outside, the inside is gutted and much repair needs doing.

And after making waves at the Sundance Film Festival in 2012 with "Simon Killer," which he co-wrote and starred in, Corbet returns to the Dramatic Competition category with another intriguing offering.

Cosmopolis Robert Pattinson
From "Twilight" hunk who couldn't walk into a corner store without a legion of girls screaming and passing out, to an actor making all the right moves, Robert Pattinson continues to leave his vampire past far behind him. With a re-teaming with David Cronenberg and films with James Gray and Werner Herzog on the horizon, Pattinson continues to be cashing in his Respectable Actor chips and is now set to work again with a famed French actress.

While Vince Vaughn is best known for his motormouth in a wide array of comedies, he's been desperate to do something a bit more gritty. Over the past while, he's been lining up no shortage of more serious-minded fare like the the thriller "The Risk Agent," the Randall Wallace-penned "Gunslingers" and road adventure "Triple Time." But it looks like another project has the momentum to cast the actor in a whole new light.

Seemingly every generation's zeitgeist-capturing musical movement has its correlating cinematic interpretation (usually about an arty director with some experience in said movement). Whit Stillman's “The Last Days of Disco” attempted to be that film for the early '80s and the waning days of the '70s musical fad of choice; Michael Winterbottom's “24 Hour Party People” captured the Factory records heyday of the late '80s; and now, behold, Mia Hansen-Love is bringing us "Eden," a chronicle of the electronic music boom of the '90s.

In a short yet effective span of time, Brady Corbet has quietly turned in a range of stellar supporting and co-lead performances, from Gregg Araki's “Mysterious Skin” to the more recent “Martha Marcy May Marlene.” But Antonio Campos' latest, "Simon Killer" is a star revelation for Corbet -- his role is chilling, confident, and unblinking -- and now the actor has decided to take his talents behind the camera.
