Yesterday, SXSW unveiled the list of feature films that will appear at this year’s conference. They still have not revealed their Midnights, SXFantastic, Shorts program or who will be gracing their panel, though. Below are a few of the movies we’re hoping to check out this year. For the full lineup and more information about the films, visit SXSW.com.
This feature follows two roommates as one gets a job and the other is dying. “During one night of drinks, drugs and women, a classic battle of wills ensues as James prepares for work and Jimmy goes mad.” Sounds epic.
We do not really know what it is about except that Jodie Foster directed it, Mel Gibson is in it and a beaver is a main character. Must. See.
