Locally shot 'Salvation Boulevard' will premiere at Sundance next week
"Salvation Boulevard," a feature film that partly shot in Ann Arbor, as well as various Detroit area locations last spring, will have its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah on Monday.
The film has no trailer available online, but its roster of stars is impressive: Ed Harris, Jennifer Connelly, Marisa Tomei, Pierce Brosnan, Jim Gaffigan and Greg Kinnear, among others. The story focuses on Brosnan as a charismatic pastor of a mega-church, and Kinnear as a hippie, born-again member of Brosnan's flock who unwittingly sees the pastor in a compromising position.
Ann Arbor locations that were used for the "Salvation" shoot include U-M's Rackham Auditorium, Law Quadrangle, and Argus Building, as well as a house at West William and Third Street.
We'll be watching for early online reviews from critics and Sundance attendees next week. Stay tuned.
