Sundance Film “To The Stars” is Available for Pre-Order!

Dear Compadres — To The Stars, is finally here! 

Currently, my days are spent in pjs, sporting root-y hair and stubbly legs, feeling exhausted and pitiful and hoping I’m not sick with “it!”

However, in the midst of this dirge of ill-fated woe, Samuel Goldwyn Films is releasing the Sundance Film I wrote, To The Stars, on April 24th!

Here’s the trailer:

To The Stars is available for pre-order right now on Fandango Now!  ITunes and Apple TV! Watchable on April 24th.

At that time, you can also rent or buy it on Amazon Prime!

And since you’re sitting around in your home, wearing pajamas (hopefully not fighting off COVID 19, like moi) you have no excuse. You’ve got to watch this timeless classic!

You will thank me for it.

And maybe send me apple turnovers and whiskey. ‘Cuz getting fat and drunk is exactly what the doctor ordered for this disease. I’m surprised Dr. Fauci hasn’t mentioned it before.

I can’t tell you how proud I am of this film.

Directed by Martha Stephens, To The Stars is an evocative period piece that’s never been more current, boasting some of the best acting talent in Hollywood today.

We’ve got Tony Hale (VEEP), Malin Akerman (Billions), Shea Whigham (Boardwalk Empire, Mission Impossible 7Jordana Spiro (Ozark), Kara Hayward (Moonrise Kingdom), Liana Liberato (If I Stay) and Lucas Jade Zumann (Anne with an E).

Samuel Goldwyn’s Synopsis of To The Stars:

“In a god-fearing small town in 1960s Oklahoma, bespectacled and reclusive teen Iris endures the booze-induced antics of her mother and daily doses of bullying from her classmates.
 
“She finds solace in Maggie, the charismatic and enigmatic new girl at school, who hones in on Iris’s untapped potential and coaxes her out of her shell.
 
“When Maggie’s mysterious past can no longer be suppressed, the tiny community is thrown into a state of panic, leaving Maggie to take potentially drastic measures and inciting Iris to stand up for her friend and herself.”

It would mean the world if you’d spread the word by sharing this post and this film. It’s the little engine that could.

And I hope this letter finds you well during this unprecedented time. Much, much love, S

Liana Liberato "To The Stars"
Malin Akerman "To The Stars"
Adelaide Clemens "To The Stars"

Remember to please share To The Stars with anyone you love. xx S
