Carolyn’s Top 3 films from the Sundance 2020 Film Festival

In Nine Days by Edmond Oda, newly formed souls are given nine days to observe the lives of the living through their eyes. Guided by Will (Winston Duke), these new souls are tested on the moments they would treasure, relive or change as a way to prepare them of the life they may possibly live once the nine days are up. The films also stars Benedict Wong, Zazie Beets and Bill Skasgard.
Everyone has moments, days and months of doubt, where they’re not sure where their life is going and wonder if the path they’re on will make them happy. For playwright Radha (Radha Blank), these are the questions she begins contemplating after her mother dies. Unwilling to cope and admit to her grief, Radha decides that she wants to pursue a career a rapper at the age of forty in The 40-Year-Old Version, written and directed by Blank.
