Well, Blue Tongue are going to Sundance with another genre pic, this time with "Wish You Were Here." And with Joel Edgerton and Teresa Palmer toplining the film that is also opening the festival, it's likely to attract some serious attention.

Wish You Were Here

The Australian collective Blue Tongue Films have slowly been making a name for themselves. The loose bunch which includes Kieran Darcy-Smith, Joel Edgerton, Nash Edgerton, Luke Doolan, David Michôd and Spencer Susser have collaborated on numerous projects, but are best known internationally for the the thriller "The Square." Well, Blue Tongue are going to Sundance with another genre pic, this time with "Wish You Were Here." And with Joel Edgerton and Teresa Palmer toplining the film that is also opening the festival, it's likely to attract some serious attention.

Directed by Darcy-Smith, the film also stars Felicity Price (who co-wrote the film as well) and Anthony Starr, in the tale of four friends who go on vacation in Cambodia, but only three of them come back. As the secrets are revealed what happened that fateful night, things begin to bubble to a boil. Edgerton and Price play a married couple with children, while Palmer is the latter's sister, and it's her boyfriend who has disappeared. It sounds like a generic trip into genre territory but the trailer is quite promising, hinting a mystery that will be an intriguing one to uncover. It's one we're definitley looking foward to.

Check out the trailer and a couple more images from the film below; the festival runs from January 19-29. No word on U.S. distribution but that's why this movie is going to Park City, and hopefully it won't be too long until somebody snatches this up. [via Twitch]
