This past Sunday, an eager crowd of critics and fans devoted a full day — from 9 till 5 — at Park City’s classic Egyptian Theater to watching Jane Campion’s TOP OF THE LAKE in its entirety. The screening of the seven-part series was a Sundance Film Festival first and despite the serious time commitment, audiences were left thrilled by the event.
It’s quickly appearing on critics’ must-see lists — and it hasn’t even premiered yet. TOP OF THE LAKE, the seven-part Sundance Channel original series from Oscar-winning director Jane Campion, is screening in its entirety today at Park City’s Egyptian Theater — the first television series to ever do so, a fact that in itself is getting critics talking.
TOP OF THE LAKE, the highly-anticipated mini-series written and directed by Oscar® winner Jane Campion (THE PIANO, PORTRAIT OF A LADY), will debut its first two hour-long installments on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 9P.
Filmed in the remote mountains of New Zealand, the seven-part series will air Monday nights and stars three time Emmy® Award nominated actress and SAG® Award winner Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men, ON THE ROAD); Oscar® winner Holly Hunter, who reunites with Campion after their memorable collaboration on the THE PIANO, and BAFTA® nominee Peter Mullan (WAR HORSE, TRAINSPOTTING). Australian director Garth Davis also joined Campion to work on the series, along with co-writer, Gerard Lee (SWEETIE).
