Rupert Grint: The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman Sundance Screening Schedule!

December 15, 2012, 3:53am– We don’t have to wait long before Rupert Grint‘s latest adventure in the cinematic world is premiering. As we told you earlier, The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January – now the exact screening schedule has been released.

The film will be screened four times and the schedule is as follows:

1/21/2013 6:30 pm
Eccles Theatre, Park City
1/22/2013 9:00 am
Eccles Theatre, Park City
1/25/2013 9:30 pm
Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center, Salt Lake City
1/26/2013 11:59 pm
Library Center Theatre, Park City

We also have a new and the very first mini review of the film as well as the length, which is set at 108 min.

Fredrik Bond’s stylistically assured debut feature spins a drug-fueled fable of high-stakes romance, in which wearing your heart on your sleeve will leave you a bloody mess. A dynamic lead performance by Shia LaBeouf sees him pummeled at every turn as he desperately fights for the magnetic Evan Rachel Wood. The couple squares off against a dream pairing of movie bad guys: Mads Mikkelsen and Til Schweiger. This gorgeously shot adventure, with a hard-charging score setting its pace, provides a truly unique vision of the pain and ecstasy of love.

We are still awaiting word whether or not Rupert will attend the festival, so stay tuned!

Armed with little more than his wit and naïve charm, Charlie endures one bruising beat down after another to woo Gabi and keep her out of harm’s way.
