Marina Antunes [Celluloid 05.30.12] thriller drama

Though it was one of the breakout films from this year's SxSW line-up, writer/director Amy Seimetz's Sun Don't Shine wasn't a film that I'd heard or seen much about but the release of a new trailer has certainly caught my attention.

The trailer for Seimetz's film starts off like a dreamlike roadtrip romance but partway through changes tone completely and we end up in the middle of what appears to be a thriller. The story of a couple "trying to escape from a bad situation," the SxSW synopsis provides a few more details:

"Sun Don't Shine" is a subtly cryptic story driven by the powerful performances of its lead actors and its eerily poetic setting. The film follows Crystal (Kate Lyn Sheil) and her boyfriend Leo (Kentucker Audley) on a tense and mysterious road trip through the desolate yet hauntingly beautiful landscape of central Florida. As the couple travels up the Gulf Coast the disturbing details of their excursion gradually begin to emerge, revealing Crystal's sinister past and the couple's troubling future.

Sun Don't Shine doesn't have a North American distributor but will soon play in New York before heading to the Edinburgh Film Festival.
