Here's a tweet from the screen writer, Andrew McKenzie on Twitter at the airport on his way to Sundance.

#Sweetwater factoid 2: the sheep rancher role that Jason Isaacs plays is an in joke in reference to my Australian NZ roots.

Pictures from an interview today (that interview must come up somewhere in the end too):

Jason Isaacs and January Jones

And a different interview (with the twin directors)

:D

BTW: According to people on Twitter, Sweetwater has been screened today. (And from the few reactions so far it looks like it's either love or hate - we may get more proper reviews later)

Fabulous pics as always. Love Zimbio's in particular.

Can't wait to read the reviews. I had the feeling that this film would polarise people's opinions.

Hooroo,

First review from the Hollywood Reporter.
http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/movie/ ... iew/414455
"Set in what would seem to be the late 1800s in New Mexico (the film was shot in the Santa Fe and Abiquiu areas), the story has poor young couple Sarah (January Jones) and Miguel (Eduardo Noriega) being threatened by dominant local landowner Prophet Josiah (Jason Isaacs), an elegant, fire-breathing fanatic with a flock of submissive women who preaches strict adherence to the straight-and-narrow but clearly makes an exception where he himself is concerned; anything he does, no matter how brutal, is simply in line with God’s will".
"Isaacs and Harris obviously relish their melodramatic and, in the latter case, comic opportunities and are fun to watch as a result. As lovely a thing as any of these guys out west has ever seen, Jones comes across as more steely than gritty".
Best quotes.

Hooroo,
Carole
