“A critical hit and audience favorite out of the Sundance Film Festival, in DOPE, Malcolm (Shameik Moore) is carefully surviving life in a tough neighborhood in Los Angeles while juggling college applications, academic interviews, and the SAT. A chance invitation to an underground party leads him into an adventure that could allow him to go from being a geek, to being dope, to ultimately being himself.”

There have been, like, three auditions in my life where I feel like I’m in a Saturday Night Live skit. One was for Avatar, which was probably the worst audition I ever gave. Another was for 10,000 B.C., where I was just, like, on my haunches pretending to be in a loincloth in Burbank. Then the other one was Star Trek. It was all this jargon talk of torpedoes and photons.”

Margot Robbie, “Z for Zachariah”

“Every take was something different. The most fun I had was because (director) Craig (Zobel) would whisper something to Chiwetel, and then whisper something completely opposite to me. … I don’t think our characters were ever meant to be on the same page.”


For the past few years, Victoria Will has set up a tintype photo booth at the Sundance Film Festival, capturing some truly one-of-a-kind portraits of celebs.

Victoria just released the photos from this year’s festival, and it’s clear that her unique portrayals of the film industry’s finest keep getting better.

Chiwetel Ejiofor, “Z for Zachariah”

“There’s a lot that the film deals with about religion and building a society and first principles; the normalization of relationships between men and women; justice; and, in a strange way, forms of government. When you have three people, suddenly you have to organize a society.”
