Teyana Taylor Shines in Sundance Grand Jury Winner
The trailer for A Thousand and One, the Grand Jury Prize-winning film from the 2023 Sundance Film Festival, is here. The movie stars Teyana Taylor in a tour de force performance as she brings to life a complex character struggling with love, tragedy, and loss. “I feel like as a New Yorker I’m honored to be making a film about the city the way other filmmakers I admire did, like Spike Lee, Scorsese, Woody Allen,” Rockwell told IndieWire. “They’re just really known as New York people making New York films, but I was making a heartbreak letter more than a love letter. I didn’t really feel like I had a lot of examples of that to criticize in my own way. New York broke my heart.”
“A Thousand and One” nationwide on March 31.
