Randy Moore’s “Escape From Tomorrow” is film that debuted at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and a lot of buzz behind it because it was secretly shot at Disney theme parks.
When the film first premiered at Sundance, there was buzz that Disney had sent in secret team to investigate the film and apparently weren’t happen with the results. Now, I’m not sure how much of that is accurate, this is just what I recall from reading my Twitter feed when the film premiered.
Recently, it was announced that “Escape From Tomorrow” would be hitting limited theaters October 11th, 2013, and I’m eagerly excited to watch it to see what it’s all about.
Check out the poster below, synopsis after the jump, and clip after that jump:
“Escape from Tomorrow”, a bold and ingenious trip into the happiest place on earth, was one of the most provocative films to premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
An epic battle begins when a middle-aged American husband and father of two learns that he has lost his job. Keeping the news from his nagging wife and wound-up children, he packs up the family and embarks on a full day of park hopping amid enchanted castles and fairytale princesses. Soon, the manufactured mirth of the fantasy land around him begins to haunt his subconscious. An idyllic family vacation quickly unravels into a surrealist and darkly comic nightmare of paranoid visions, bizarre encounters, and an obsessive pursuit of a pair of sexy teenage Parisians. Chillingly shot in black and white, “Escape from Tomorrow” dissects the mythology of artificial perfection while subversively attacking our culture’s obsession with mass entertainment.
“Escape From Tomorrow,” was was directed by Randy Moore, hits (limited) theaters October 11th, 2013, and stars Roy Abramsohn, Elena Schuber, and Katelynn Rodriguez.
