Another stunning Red Carpet event at this year’s Denver Film Festival. Two very notable people in attendance were actress Kyra Sedgwick and producer/director Richard Levine. Emmy award winning actress Kyra Sedgwick makes her directorial debut in this amazing film which also co-stars her husband Kevin Bacon as well as their daughter Sosie Brown. For this year’s DFF, Kyra Sedgwick and Richard Levine collaborated on a movie titled “Story of a Girl” in which a sex video of 13 yr old Deanna (Ryann Shane) with 17yr old Tommy (Tyler Johnson) goes viral. Her carefree life changes forever when she is branded as the school slut. Three years later she is still dealing with the consequences of the tape being released and is ready to move on; however, when taking on a new job at a pizzeria, she ends up working alongside of Tommy and things start to get complicated again.
This is not the only film Kyra has her hands on during the Denver Film Festival. She also happens to be starring in another one showcased tonight on the Red Carpet titled “Submission”.
In this film, Ted Swenson (Stanley Tucci) is a once acclaimed author who teaches writing at a small college. Though his marriage to Sherrie (Kyra Sedgwick) is comfortable, he finds himself drowning in discontent. However, when a new pupil, Angela Argo (Addison Timlin), shows promise, Ted focuses on nurturing her career, and she appears to be more than willing to devote the one-on-one time that he requires. It is only a matter of time before the boundaries are crossed and mistakes have been made. Tonight Kyra receives the prestigious John Cassavetes Award after the screening of the film “Submission”. She was extremely honored to receive the award holding back tears as she accepted it.
