We know this film needs no introduction because the name just tells it all. The Apollo 11 was the first time a man took a giant leap of faith for mankind and decided to go on to the very first journey to the moon in the history of the world. It was beautifully chronicled by Todd Douglas Miller in a documentary.
The director utilized a whole treasure of unseen footage and game a whole lot of screen time between take-off and touch-down. The movie sheds light on every grave aspect of Neil Armstrong and it gave the audience an impeccable cinematic experience.
Awkwafina’s dramatic breakthrough in this Chinese-American chucks melodramatics and sentimentality right out of the window.
This bittersweet, funny and full of unexpected turns movie is based on a woman who finds out that her grandmother has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and she has not many more days to live but the grandmother “Nai Nai” doesn’t know that yet.
Her family decides to maintain their longstanding tradition of hiding such medical conditions from the afflicted so they could make the most of their time happily while they still can.
In the last many years of watching Sundance movies, The Farewell was by far the most moving thing anyone can watch.
The movie festival in Utah has always been known for inviting controversy one way or the other. When the Sundance Institute decided to accept the submission of “Leaving Neverland”, they knew what they were getting themselves into.
This is a two-part and four-hour movie that takes a deep dive into the allegations made by Wade Robson and James Safechuck that they were allegedly harassed by Michael Jackson. This movie went far beyond an expose and it definitely got the ire of the fans of the late pop star.
This is very hard to watch the movie yet it is so intense that you won’t be able to stop yourself. it sheds light on the trauma and hassle both these kids went through after the incident. It was definitely one of the masterpieces screened at Sundance Movie Theater.
So, these are the top 3 Sundance film festival movies from last year. The Sundance square movie theater goes back into shock in just a few months and we cannot wait to see what it has in store for the coming year.
