Logline: Two twentysomethings in London, Dom and Yas, both nursing bad breakups, find each other and roam Peckham for a day through karaoke bars and playground and in this snappily written romantic comedy.
Panelists: Raine Allen-Miller (director, writer); Vivian Oparah, David Jonsson (cast)
First Screening: January 23, 8:30 p.m MST, The Ray Theatre, Park City
Key Quote: Director Raine Allen-Miller said the script to Rye Lane was sent to her by a producer named (Damian Jones) and “I read it on the train, and embarrassed myself laughing in public. Originally, I kind of thought I won’t direct something I haven’t written. But, reading the script, I was kind of like, one, this is really funny, and two, it has the space for me to contribute quite a bit.”
Here’s a new clip of the film ahead of tonight’s premiere.
