Get it? Premiering in the NEXT category at this year’s Sundance Film Festival is That’s What She Said, directed by Carrie Preston (you know her as Arlene Fowler on HBO’s True Blood), starring Anne Heche, Marcia DeBonis and Alia Shawkat. The film concerns two lifelong friends with their fair share of relationship problems. The duo makes it a trio when they meet lovelorn Clementine (Shawkat). The three proceed to make, and get into, trouble in New York City.
Check out the trailer below via THR, along with some stills and the poster.
Longtime best friends Bebe and DeeDee are both wrestling with love. Bebe has met someone new and is in the exuberant phase of a budding romance. DeeDee is trying to move on from someone she can’t forget—mostly in destructive ways. As Bebe waits for the perpetually late DeeDee at their favorite coffee shop, she meets Clementine, a distraught young woman with love problems of her own. With Clementine in tow, Bebe and DeeDee soon embark on the kind of outrageous misadventure that only New York City can offer.
Actor/director Carrie Preston takes us on a touching, emotional, and hilarious ride full of heart. With sharp writing and strong comedic performances all around, That’s What She Said is a brazen and honest look at friendship, love, and the lies we tell ourselves along the way.
The film will have its world premiere at the fest Friday, Jan. 20, at the Prospector Square Theatre at 5:30 pm.

As much as we’d love to believe certain myths, no filmmaker has simply waltzed into making a masterpiece without cutting their teeth beforehand. Jaws may have been the first modern blockbuster, but Spielberg had already created a terrifying beast with the mechanical semi-truck in a made-for-television film, Duel. Truffaut’s The 400 Blows remains among the [...]
