Wormwood

A fascinating piece of filmmaking that challenges the form in new ways as it recalls themes its director has been interested in his entire career.

"Call Me by Your Name," "Get Out" and "Good Time" Lead Spirit Award Nominees

Luca Guadagnino's acclaimed gay romance, "Call Me by Your Name," emerged as the frontrunner at the 2018 Film Independent Spirit Awards when nominations were announced yesterday. It received six nods for Best Feature, Best Director, Best Male Lead (Timothée Chalamet), Best Supporting Male (Armie Hammer), Best Cinematography (Sayombhu Mukdeeprom) and Best Editing (Walter Fasano). Followed close behind is Jordan Peele's timely hit, "Get Out," and Benny & Josh Safdie's "Good Time," each receiving five nominations apiece. "Get Out" has the edge with nominations in both the Best Feature and Best Director categories, while "Good Time" was shut out of the running for the top prize. The other three Best Feature contenders are Sean Baker's "The Florida Project," Greta Gerwig's "Lady Bird" and Chloé Zhao's little-seen "The Rider." Zhao also earned a Directing nomination alongside Baker and Jonas Carpignano for the Italian drama, “A Ciambra.”
