'The Sublime and Beautiful'

The Slamdance Film Festival has been making noise in Park City since 1995. An anarchic movie haven, the festival (January 17-23) runs concurrent with Sundance (January 16-26), offering subversively minded filmmakers, whether shut out of Sundance or not, an opportunity to screen their feature debuts with budgets of less than $1 million and without distribution.

This year's Narrative and Documentary Feature Film Competition lineup at Slamdance screens films from all corners of the world including the US, Canada, Austria, Denmark, Mexico and Israel.

Making its world premiere at Slamdance, the performance-driven narrative drama "The Sublime and Beautiful" is written and directed by Blake Robbins (NBC's "The Office," HBO's "Oz"). He stars as a father coping with the death of his children as he wrestles with his morals and desire for retribution, descending into a complicated hell of grief alongside his wife (Laura Kirk). A TOH! exclusive trailer below.

    Looks good aesthetically. Deals with loss of life and alcoholism? Always worthy topics to tackle!
    Hope it does well. Laura, are you "ready ready?"

    I think the Sublime and the Beautiful should win because it grips you and doesn't let go. Blake gives you the depths of a soul and how the pain can be unbearable and the performances are outstanding!!!
