The Sundance 2020 Movie Scorecard

Another year, another Sundance: Some event films of the 2020 edition included Miss Americana, the Taylor Swift documentary, and Zola, a Spring Breakers/Hustlers hybrid based on an infamous Twitter thread. Then there was The 40-Year-Old Version, about a New York playwright who becomes a rapper at 40, and Promising Young Woman, a raucous revenge thriller starring Carey Mulligan. Also featured: Beasts of the Southern Wild director Benh Zeitlin’s return with a Peter Pan adaptation, Wendy. And if the wheelings and dealings of Sundance are your thing, Rebecca Hall ghost story The Night House sold for $12 million, while Hulu and NEON has snatched up Palm Springs for 17,500,00 dollars (American) and 69 cents, officially beating the previous high set by Birth of a Nation by less than a buck.
