Come Away tells an alternative origin story for Peter Pan and Alice from Alice in Wonderland.
Although the Film, starring Angelina Jolie, David Oyelowo, Michael Caine and Gugu Mbatha-Raw is targeted towards children, there are many themes that resonate with adults. Director Brenda Chapman’s primary theme throughout is grief with focus on contrasting what grief looks like within children and adults. Chapman also blends an even mix of actuality and fantasy giving it an authentic feel. Overall, Come Away is enchanting from the adventure to the examination of grief, even if it is sometimes a little slow.
Come Away screens at Sundance on Fri, Jan. 24th at 12:30 PM at The Ray Theatre, Sat, Jan. 25th at 12:30 PM at Redstone Cinema 1. Sun, Jan. 26th at 12 PM at Salt Lake City Library Theatre, Fri, Jan. 31st at 5:30 PM at Prospector Square Theatre, and Sat, Feb. 1st at 3:30 PM at Redstone Cinema 1.

FOX SEARCHLIGHT and MR. WILL WONG want to take Readers in Calgary, Toronto and Vancouver to an Advance Screening of TIFF ’13 Selection, BELLE!
BELLE is inspired by the True Story of Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), the illegitimate mixed-race Daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral. Raised by her aristocratic Great-Uncle Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) and his Wife (Emily Watson), Belle’s lineage affords her certain privileges, yet the color of her skin prevents her from fully participating in the traditions of her social standing. Left to wonder if she will ever find love, Belle falls for an idealistic young vicar’s son bent on change who, with her help, shapes Lord Mansfield’s role as Lord Chief Justice to end slavery in England.
