In the new, Sundance Festival-screened film Colossal, Anne Hathaway plays an unemployed, heavy-drinking woman named Gloria who is forced to leave her life in New York and move back to her hometown. When news reports surface that a giant creature is destroying Seoul, Gloria gradually comes to the realization that she is somehow connected to this far-off phenomenon.
Colossal is written and directed by Nacho Vigalondo, whose previous films include the terrific science fiction thriller Timecrimes, and costars Jason Sudeikis, Tim Blake Nelson, Austin Stowell, and Dan Stevens. The movie is the first release from Tom Quinn and Alamo Drafthouse head honcho Tim League’s new company NEON and is slated to hit theaters on April 7.
