FILM ANNOUNCE // ‘Entertainment’ (Dir. Rick Alverson) To Premier At Sundance Film Festival Jan. 24 – 30

Jagjaguwar is proud to present Entertainment, the fourth film from Director Rick Alverson. Premiering this weekend at Sundance Film Festival, the film starts a bevy of actors both new and old to the Alverson world, including Gregg Turkington, Tye Sheridan, John C. Reilly, Michael Cera, and Amy Seimetz. Jagjaguwar’s Chris Swanson also performed the role of Music Supervisor. Full description and screening dates are below.

Park City may not be ready for it, but writer/director Rick Alverson (The Comedy) returns with this nightmarish account of a traveling comedian lost on the brink. A broken, aging comedian tours the California desert, lost in a cycle of third-rate venues, novelty tourist attractions, and vain attempts to reach his estranged daughter. By day, he slogs through the barren landscape, inadvertently alienating every acquaintance. At night, he seeks solace in the animation of his onstage persona. Fueled by the promise of a lucrative Hollywood engagement, he trudges through a series of increasingly surreal and volatile encounters. In Alverson’s hallucinatory fugue, Gregg Turkington stars as The Comedian, caught in a struggle between being the center of attention and the object of alienation, occasionally challenged by an unexpected cast of characters played by Tye Sheridan, John C. Reilly, Michael Cera, and Amy Seimetz. Acquisition title: Cinetic. 98m.
