AKA set for Sundance, singled out by IndieWIRE
IndieWIRE, the electronic newsletter on independent film, joined the procession of year-end lists on Tuesday, weighing in with its picks for best undistributed films of 2002. The list includes the Brit drama AKA, directed by Duncan Roy and starring Matthew Leitch, George Asprey, and Lindsey Coulson. IndieWIRE sums up the picture thus: "A startlingly moving film with the screen constantly in triptych. A lower-class British lad, who's slowly coming out, takes on a high-society teen's identity and is embraced by high society in France. The result is moving, marvelously acted and directed, with astonishingly complex editing."
At gay film festivals this year, AKA won the HBO Outstanding First Narrative Feature Award at Los Angeles's OutFest; the jury award for Best Film at Montreal's Image&Nation; Best Feature at Seattle; and the Audience Award for Best Gay Film at Copenhagen. AKA will also be screening at Sundance 2003.
