Mapother to go (Sun)dancing

Long time readers know that Mama has a wee little celebrity crush on a certain semi-famous Louisvillager.

Today the 2011 Sundance Film competition released its line-up and our fair William Mapother is starring in one of the sixteen films slated for the US Dramatic Competition.

from the /Film blog:

This year’s 16 films were selected from 1,102 submissions. Each is a world premiere.

Another Earth (Director: Mike Cahill; Screenwriters: Mike Cahill and Brit Marling) — On the eve of the discovery of a duplicate Earth, a horrible tragedy irrevocably alters the lives of two strangers, who begin an unlikely love affair. Cast: William Mapother, Brit Marling, Jordan Baker, Robin Lord Taylor, Flint Beverage.

A Louisvillager AND sci-fi?  Love!

Mr. Mapother blogged about this earlier today.  In usual humble fashion.  The IMDB listing for the film is a little sparse, I'm afraid.  I'll be sure to do some digging around to find out more.  

Congrats to one of our Louisvillagers!
