Check This Out: Poster Premiere for Derick Martini's Lymelife
If you love indie films, then you better start to get to know this one. Cinematical has premiered the poster for Lymelife, a coming-of-age 1970s set drama that is screening at Sundance this week. The film stars Rory Culkin as a kid growing up on Long Island dealing with parents who are on the verge of divorce and his own budding sexual interests. I first saw it at the Toronto Film Festival late last year and thought it was great, an enjoyable comical drama that feels a lot like Noah Baumbach's The Squid and the Whale. This poster isn't that bad either, so check it out and make sure to keep on the look out for Lymelife later this year.
I gave Lymelife a 7.5 out of 10 back at Toronto, saying it "was a well-made American coming-of-age story full of strong performances and the occasional laugh-out-loud moment." Check out the new poster.
Lymelife is both co-written and directed by New York born filmmaker Derick Martini, who is making his directorial debut with this film. The screenplay was also co-written by Derick's brother Steven Martini. The two developed the script at the Sundance Filmmaker's Lab for eight years before finally shooting it in early 2008. The film first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year and is also showing at Sundance this year. Lymelife is currently scheduled to hit very limited theaters on April 17th later this year.
